KNBR Moves: Bruce To 1050, Santangelo To 680

CUMULUS Sports KNBR-A/SAN FRANCISCO moves evening host DAMON BRUCE to sister Sports KTCT-A (KNBR 1050) for noon-4p PT, starting MARCH 1st. At the same time, former major leaguer and CBS RADIO Sports KHTK-A/SACRAMENTO host F.P. SANTANGELO is joining KNBR 680 for 7-10p.
"I'm very excited with both these moves. We're adding more local sports talk to KNBR 1050, and introducing DAMON to the day-time audience in the BAY AREA," said PD LEE HAMMER. "Listeners can continue to expect the passionate, no holds barred opinions that BRUCE is known for."
"Adding DAMON to 1050, opened the door for us to hire F.P. SANTANGELO," HAMMER added. "As a former major league player, he'll be able to offer a unique perspective and analysis following GIANTS baseball." SANTANGELO left KHTK in NOVEMBER 2008 in a budget cut, a year after an on-air apology for being named as a user of performance-enhancing substances in baseball's MITCHELL Report.
