I was recently scanning the radio and music news websites for more radio news to share with you and here’s what I found this week.
CBS Radio Alternative rocker KITS(Live 105) Morning Show Host Kevin Klein has inked a new multi-year deal, keeping him at the helm of the weekday morning show alongside co-host Ally Johnson. Kevin Klein Live debuted on Live 105 in September 2014.
Since then, Klein and crew have attracted record-breaking numbers for the station, finishing the last quarterly book No. 1 among Adults 18-34 and No. 3 among Adults 18-49. “Morning radio in the Bay Area has been a laughing stock, but NO ONE IS LAUGHING NOW…oh wait,” Klein said. “In just two years, Kevin Klein Live has become a defining voice for a new generation of Bay Area listeners,” Program Director Jacent Jackson told the radio trade publication Friday Morning Quarterback. “They sound like nothing else on the dial. We are thrilled by their accomplishments and look forward to continued success for Kevin Klein Live on Live 105. The future for this show is bright.”
