KFOX (98.5 and 102.1) has hired former KFOG personality Annalisa for the morning drive to replace Greg Kihn, who departed on Friday. KFOX is also adding a commercial-free, advertiser-sponsored music block weekdays from 9 to noon, and it is expanding its music library to include hits from the 80s and 90s. So along with the station's core artists of Led Zeppelin, the Rolling Stones, Aerosmith and the Beatles, KFOX‘s playlist will now include artists from Pearl Jam to Nirvana to Bob Marley to Stevie Wonder. (Here's the press release from station owner Entercom.)
Beginning Sept. 24, KFOX’s lineup will include:
• 5-9 a.m. – Annalisa
• 9-noon – commercial-free music block
• noon-3 p.m. – Laurie Roberts
• 3 to 7 p.m. – Big Rick Stuart
• 7-midnight – Webster
"Annalisa has been a radio icon in the Bay Area for over 16 years and she consistently had the highest rated show on KFOG," said KFOX Program Director Garner Goin in a press release. "Her enthusiasm, passion, and music knowledge will be a refreshing choice for morning drive in the Bay Area. We are equally excited about improving the listening experience for our audience, from our larger music library to a dedicated commercial-free music block every day."
