The dust is starting to settle at CUMULUS' new LOS ANGELES acquisitions, Classic Rock KLOS and Talk KABC-A (NET NEWS, 10/26). KABC-A PD JACK SILVER assumes the programming duties at KLOS, while the Rocker settles on its on-air lineup, while KABC-A bids adieu to traffic reporter CAPT. JORGE JARRIN.
At KLOS, UNCLE JOE BENSON returns to afternoon drive, succeeding departed PD/afternoon BOB BUCHMANN. GARY MOORE's night shift is lengthened to midnight, followed my overnighter MIKE VOGEL.
"Having programmed rock stations in markets including SAN FRANCISCO, SAN DIEGO and ST. LOUIS, this is another major move in my career. KLOS is a legendary station with MARK & BRIAN in the morning," SILVER said. "It’s my job to keep the legend moving forward and a job I will take very seriously. Plus, we have made major progress with KABC and will continue to improve that station as well."
"After 26 years at KABC my road there has come to an end," JARRIN e-mailed the OC REGISTER's GARY LYCAN. "However, I had anticipated as much, what with the current situation for KABC and was prepared for this. I will be fine. I will continue with my current role as manager of Spanish broadcast sales for the DODGERS, but once again the DODGERS have granted me the flexibility to entertain any on air opportunities that may arise. After all, the attraction of being on air still runs deep within me."
