KBLX, 102.9/SAN FRANCISCO only urban leaning station is canceling the Steve Harvey Morning Show and bringing in comedian Mark Curry who is from the Bay area. He will start on Monday Oct 12 with vets Kimmie Taylor and Victor “Big Daddy” Zaragoza. We’re not sure how this will work out but from my programming perspective I would allow Mark to bring in his own sidekicks to ensure the trio gels on the air but perhaps this has already been tested but as you know RFFocus loves local mornings in certain markets so we are not complaining.
“The KBLX audience has been asking for a live and local morning show and we’re giving them exactly that. I’m so excited to have such great talent on the KBLX airwaves and it’s an honor and privilege to put together a local morning show that will not only be engaging and entertaining but will also be an integral part of our listeners’ daily lives” stated PD Stacey Cunningham. Curry said, ‘I’m just glad to have a damn JOB… Thank Ya Jesus’ OK, he didn’t say that he actually said… ‘Do I get paid yet?’ OK, he didn’t say that either… I can’t help it.
He ACTUALLY said “I’m so ready to take to the BAY AREA airwaves. I’m bubbling with excitement to serve the listeners of this legendary radio station in the market where I was born and raised. How great is that? We’re about to change the face of BAY AREA radio forever. Get ready, cause here we come.” He, Big Daddy and Kimme then started dancing like the Temptations.
VP/GM said Steve Dinaro added “Mark Curry” is a great addition to ENTERCOM and the KBLX family. As a BAY AREA native, MARK truly understands this unique and diverse media landscape. MARK’s compelling humor and mass appeal will resonate with KBLX listeners. This team’s passion for the community and their charisma are a winning combination.” Steve Harvey stated “Why is y’all droppin’ my show?”
