CITADEL Talk KGO-A/SAN FRANCISCO afternoon co-anchor ROSIE ALLEN celebrated 25 years with the station on TUESDAY's show. A special on-air tribute aired on the show with contributions from her past and present co-workers. ALLEN started her career at crosstown KNEW-A, then moved to KNBR-A and joined then-KGO sister station KSFX as Public Affairs Director in 1977, also doing weekends at KGO that year. She became co-anchor of the afternoon KGO news in 1984, and continues as co-anchor with BRET BURKHART today.
"This is a most incredible journey, where else but AMERICA can a little girl from MANSFIELD, LOUISIANA end up as the afternoon news anchor on the top News/Talk station in the country ... I’ve been pinching myself everyday for the past 25 years!," she said.
KGO Pres./GM MICKEY LUCKOFF said, "ROSIE has always been a great contributor and a mainstay in the KGO newsroom."
