CNBC Highlights John And Ken's Impact On California
July 22, 2009 at 4:56 AM (PT)
CLEAR CHANNEL Talk KFI-A/LOS ANGELES afternoon hosts JOHN KOBYLT and KEN CHIAMPOU continue to stir up controversy in CALIFORNIA, and their exploits have drawn the attention of CNBC, which aired a piece on JOHN AND KEN on MONDAY as well as posting an article about the show on CNBC.COM. The article is headlined "CALIFORNIA Governors JOHN AND KEN," reflecting the duo's influence in the state and "real" Governor ARNOLD SCHWARZENEGGER's exasperated comments asking whether he or the radio hosts are running the state. The video piece credited the team with putting pressure on SACRAMENTO to reach a budget deal without tax increases.
In the wake of the article's publication, KOBYLT joked on MONDAY's show that the hosts are requiring everyone at the station's BURBANK studios to call them "Governor."
