It is official, we can now bid farewell to Bryan as a region. Bryan emailed me the official news (gee, It’s an EXCLUSIVE!) and he wants you all to know his good fortune.
I personally will miss him, and will try to call down to his new radio home occasionally, just to keep him on his toes.
Expect it Bryan!
So, with a bittersweet smile, LSU says: Congrats Bryan! This is nothing you did not deserve, and I hope they know how lucky they are to have you.
So….I work in Los Angeles (again). KFI (640am -LSU) has offered me the 7pm-10pm gig and my peeps are working things out. Needless to say, it’s a bit of a step up.
KFI is hands down the number one news/talk station in America( the #1 english station in LA) and jobs there happen once in a generation. Pretty good for getting off the plane without an aircheck and going on that night.
But Program Director Robin Bertolucci is the best in the business and she knows what she wants as soon as she hears it. When I was fired ( on Veteran’s Day weekend…as I recall) Robin called me before I got home.
“So…now will you come to LA?”
I’ll start next week and we’ll be moving down there over several weeks time. I’m obviously very excited about all of the opportunities that having a show in LA represent, but I’ll always miss Seattle. It’s home and it’s where I started in talk radio. I’ve been doing the KFI show from Clear Channel in Seattle, and I gotta say..I could get used to that. However, the move is unavoidable. Having started in KROQ LA in 1992, I know the area and the shock will be minimal. Housing prices are plummeting (luckily) and it appears to be a cosmic confluence of factors calling me back to that town.
Syndication? Maybe. If that happens, Karl will be one of the first to know.
I wish everyone at KVI the best, and I really mean that. In radio…people get fired. Period. I think that change is inevitable and I hope others have the luck I have enjoyed these past three weeks. As we used to say at KROQ, “It’s not WHO you know…It’s who I know.”
Good luck my friend. Reminder: http://kfi640.com/main.html has podcasts and live streaming.
