Classical KDFC drops 2 on-air personalities
A week after KKSF flipped from jazz to classic rock, there's word of cut backs at classical station KDFC 102.1, a station owned by the Entercom chain out of Philadelphia. John Evans (pictured) is out after seven years in the afternoon drive-time slot, and 30 years in the market. Also gone is morning news woman Betsy O'Connor. Instead of hiring a new afternoon personality, morning man Hoyt Smith is now doing his show from 6:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. and midday host Dianne Nicolini is on from 1 to 7. Program Director Bill Lueth's only comment to us was "KDFC is a special radio station in a special city." No doubt the station's fans hope it stays that way.
