KGO NewsTalk 810 has decided fill-in host Pat Thurston will get the weekend slot made available after John Rothmann was promoted to the 10 p.m.-to-1 a.m. slot last week. She's been doing substitute hosting at the station since 2007 but has a career in broadcasting dating back to her days in the Army when she hosted a TV show. Her resume also includes employment by the Secret Service. She live in Marin county with her husband and 6-year old triplets.
Thurston’s show began this morning (Sept. 19) and air Saturdays from 1-5 a.m. and Sundays from 1-6 a.m.
