The Wolf quits its old morning team and tries someting new
The country music team that featured a diverse lineup, with a gay guy, a black guy, a Jewish guy and I don't remember what else, has been given the boot.
Instead, Entercom's 95.7 claims it will give listeners a morning team the listeners requested (seeing as the duo comes from Cincinatti and Minneapolis, I don't know how the listeners would have known who the hell they were....but that's the nature of radio PR...)
Here's what the station claims:
SAN FRANCISCO - April 3, 2008) 95.7 The Wolf (KBWF-FM), The Bay Area’s Fresh Country, welcomes Ken & Corey to mornings, effective April 7, 2008. “After extensive feedback from our Wolfpack of listeners, we’re excited to debut a show built by the listeners,” said Program Director and Prime Minister of Twang, Scott Mahalick.
“We just celebrated our first birthday, and as the only country station to reach the entire Bay Area, listeners haven’t been shy about telling us what they like and don’t like about the station. We took that feedback to heart in bringing in Ken & Corey for the Bay Area’s most fun, energetic, family-friendly, and entertaining morning show.”
Ken Anderson joins 95.7 The Wolf after helping launch 97.3 The Wolf in Cincinnati and has worked in country radio for over 10 years. “Always being told I was left of center, it’s exciting to be on the left coast. I’m excited to be working with Scott Mahalick and [VP/Market Manager] Dwight Walker… ok, well, really excited just to be working…” said Anderson. Corey Foley previously co-hosted mornings on KDWB Minneapolis with Dave Ryan.
“As a country girl, I am so excited to work for the fastest growing station in the Bay Area,” said Foley. Ken & Corey are joined by Co-host/Associate Producer Eddie King and Producer Jake Ray every weekday morning from 5 a.m. until 10 a.m. Music Director Nikki Landry (10 a.m. – 3 p.m.), JoJo Kincaid (3 p.m. -7 p.m.) and Keola (7 p.m. – Midnight) round out the weekday Wolf lineup. 95.7
The Wolf launched on March 1, 2007 with 15,000 songs in a row and features core artists such as Kenny Chesney, Keith Urban, Carrie Underwood, and Toby Keith. The Wolf’s market success has brought major country talent back to San Francisco, including the largest country show ever in Northern California, the upcoming Kenny Chesney Poets & Pirates Tour, on June 8 th at AT&T Park in San Francisco.
