CBS RADIO has signed STRYKER to a multi-year contract extension which will bring him back to afternoon drive on Alternative KROQ/LOS ANGELES, starting MONDAY, MARCH 1st. As he segues from his afternoons gig on Top 40/Mainstream sister KAMP (97.1 AMP); BOOKER will move from middays to afternoons on AMP and his slot will be filled by XM 20 on 20 PD/afternoons MICHELLE BOROS.
STRYKER joined KROQ in MARCH 1999 as night-time personality, eventually moving to afternoon drive and later co-hosting LOVELINE. "I grew up in LOS ANGELES and growing up in LA means listening to the World Famous KROQ," he said. "Both my passion for music and my career started with KROQ, and it’s exciting to be coming home."
"STRYKER is a star in any format, but his true passion lies with KROQ," CBS RADIO SVP/Programming and KROQ/AMP/JACK PD KEVIN WEATHERLY said. "He’s done an outstanding job helping us launch AMP, but as we talked about his future over the past few months we both agreed his return to KROQ was the right move for him, the station, and the listeners who have come to know him through his more than 10 years in the market.
"And with the opportunity to bring MICHELLE on board at AMP the timing couldn't be better," he added. "MICHELLE has it all -- she’s talented, creative and passionate. She is a dynamic personality and a music junkie."
"I'm thrilled to join 97.1 AMP RADIO, alongside such an amazing lineup with CARSON DALY, BOOKER and MCCABE," said BOROS. "AMP is an exciting station, and I'm thankful for the opportunity to work with KEVIN WEATHERLY and his talented team. I can't wait to get started!"
KROQ’s revamped lineup includes KEVIN & BEAN in mornings (5:30-10a); KAT CORBETT in middays (10a-1p); SLUGGO (1-4p); STRYKER (4-7p); NICOLE ALVAREZ (7-10p) and LOVELINE with DR. DREW 10p-midnight.
KAMP's new lineup will feature CARSON DALY in mornings (6-10a); MICHELLE BOROS (10a-3p) BOOKER in afternoons (3-7p) and CASEY MCCABE at night (7p-midnight).
