Ah, more names, more memories. Thanks again, rickradio!
I didn't actually do the weekday News at Noon on a regular basis, only filling in from time to time. (I also filled in for Jeff Bell occasionally, mostly during holiday weeks.) I did show up on both shows daily as a reporter, tho, and anchored the KFBK Saturday Morning News/Saturday News at Noon/Sunday Morning News for most of my time there.
Jenny O was another of my long-running Saturday co-anchors...let's see, that's a list also including KGO morning news anchor Jennifer Jones, Marna Davis (now in SD at KFMB/760), Laura did a couple of fill-ins, Chris Lane (now at KFI) did a month of the Saturday shows with me until taking over in weekday morning drive, and I even had one male fill-in co-anchor, reporter Mike Sicilia (now in state government).
There, the entire co-anchor history of a show only I cared about.
Oh, and S5 and I spent a lot of time in the Y92 studio on Sunday mornings, mostly because we were airing program-length infomercials at that point on KFBK. I occasionally asked her to flip on the KFBK air monitor so I knew we were still on the air.
Winte is a big shot in Texas state government these days...I believe he's a high level aide to that state's governor.
We had a *great* reporting staff, including all of the above mentioned. It may have been the best reporting staff in news radio in the 1990s.
Dave Williams is currently "on the beach" due to changes at his most recent Los Angeles station. Now, THERE is someone who needs to be picked up by a good station, and quick!
Hosley is back as ND of KCBS, and Cristi is VP/Programming for ABC News Radio in NYC, and Fox News Radio/News Talk is full of ex-'BKers. I used to keep track of this stuff on a webpage
Really, the KFBK(/KSTE) of the 1990s was not just a "Who's Who" of local radio...Ethan Way alumni are all over the business nationwide now. I was reminded of this when TRN's "America's Radio News Network" hired ex-PM drive co-anchor Jay Alan recently, and they had very nice praise of KFBK...
