Carroll Joins KFI; Handel Weekday Syndie Show To End
February 12, 2010 at 6:27 AM (PT)
BILL HANDEL's syndicated midday weekday show for PREMIERE RADIO NETWORKS is coming to an end, and his flagship, CLEAR CHANNEL Talk KFI-A/LOS ANGELES, is bringing in ASTRAL MEDIA Talk CFRB-A/TORONTO host BILL CARROLL as its new local noon-2p PT host, effective FEBRUARY 22nd. HANDEL will continue his local KFI morning show and weekend PREMIERE "HANDEL ON THE LAW" show.
"I definitely underestimated how much having a second show would eat up my day," said HANDEL. "That’s why I’m leaving the noon show behind … that, and the fact that no one wants to hear that much from me, not even my wife!"
KFI PD ROBIN BERTOLUCCI added, "The noon show has been taking its toll on BILL and his morning show since the day it launched. BILL's tremendously talented and we need all of his energy to go into his 5-9a show."
On CARROLL, BERTOLUCCI added, "BILL CARROLL is a wonderful find! He is smart, articulate and one of the best storytellers in radio. KFI listeners will absolutely love him!"
