CUMULUS MEDIA Talk KGO-A/SAN FRANCISCO has revamped its on-air lineup, bringing in MARK THOMPSON to do 10a-noon, then moving PAT THURSTON to noon-3p and JOHN ROTHMAN to 6-9p, all starting MONDAY, MARCH 11th.
“I’m excited to be able to add more live and local programming to KGO,” KGO PD/OM LEE HAMMER said. “KGO is talking about the major stories of the day and the impact they have on our daily life. To get those conversations started, we’ve added three outstanding and veteran talk show hosts, each with their own unique style of engaging, informing and entertaining our listeners.”
THOMPSON is a 30-year radio vet who has worked at KABC and KFI/LOS ANGELES, as well as an earlier stint at KGO. “It’s nothing short of a thrill to be back on the air in the BAY AREA and on a legendary station that was my daily companion for so long,” THOMPSON said. “It’s an exciting opportunity to be able to with the KGO 810 audience, which I believe is one of the smartest audiences in all of broadcasting.”
PAT THURSTON has been doing weekends at KGO for the last 12 years. “I can’t wait to get started,” she said. “The news is exploding all around us, and KGO is the only station in the BAY AREA that welcomes callers. I want to hear from people who both agree and disagree with me. We need to get all the issues, both locally and nationally, out in the open and have intelligent discussions.”
JOHN ROTHMAN has been a part of the KGO family for more than 20 years. “There is no place that I would rather be than back on KGO five days a week,” said ROTHMAN. “Every night we’ll discuss the issues of the day and have a lot of fun doing so.”
