Former CLEAR CHANNEL AC KOST/LOS ANGELES morning co-host KIM AMIDON has officially been named morning co-host at CBS RADIO Smooth Jazz KTWV (94.7 THE WAVE)/LOS ANGELES. AMIDON, the 22-year veteran at KOST who has been hosting weekends at THE WAVE since FEBRUARY and filled in on the morning show last month, replaces singer BRIAN MCKNIGHT alongside co-host PAT PRESCOTT; MCKNIGHT will continue to appear periodically on the show and will make other appearances for the station.
PD JHANI KAYE said, "KIM is a perfect fit for THE WAVE's audience and is sure to attract many of her former listeners. Together PAT and KIM will add a local flavor to the show as they both have the unique ability of making every listener feel like they're in the car right alongside with them."
"I'm thrilled to return to mornings and I invite all of my former listeners to tune in," said AMIDON. "I'm passionate about the music we play and it'll be lots of fun to co-host mornings with PAT PRESCOTT, who I admire so much. We plan to present the most relatable morning show for adults on the radio."
