In a shuffle at two sports stations in NORTHERN CALIFORNIA, DON GERONIMO is moving to mornings at CBS RADIO Sports KHTK-A/SACRAMENTO to fill the gap left as "THE RISE GUYS" head to ENTERCOM Sports KBWF (SPORTSRADIO 95.7FM )/SAN FRANCISCO to take over the new FM sports talker's morning show.
GERONIMO, who has been hosting middays noon-4p (PT) for the past year and added PD duties in MAY, told listeners TODAY (7/8) that he will replace "THE RISE GUYS" -- WHITEY GLEASON, MARK KREIDLER, and MARK "THE PHANTOM" LOWE -- in morning drive 5:30-10a starting MONDAY (7/11), as the RISE GUYS, or at least two of them, move to SPORTSRADIO 95.7FM as that station's new morning show, starting AUGUST 1st.
At KBWF, GLEASON and KREIDLER (but not PHANTOM) will be joined by new "RISE GUY" DAN DIBLEY, who recently signed up with the station. "BAY AREA sports fans now have a choice in the mornings," said PD JASON BARRETT. "The RISE GUYS are a proven duo who has delivered great ratings and real results for clients. Teaming them with DAN DIBLEY, we've hired a great, local team with strong BAY AREA roots. Our morning show will be the best combination of sports conversation, strong opinions and lifestyle entertainment."
At KHTK, GERONIMO's producer and sidekick CARMICHAEL DAVE will take over noon-3p (while continuing to work alongside GERONIMO in morning drive), with afternoon host and SACRAMENTO KINGS voice GRANT NAPEAR will add an hour to start at 3p.
