    KGO which is basically the affiliated liberal side of the same KSFO – KGO radio family (“sister stations”) is in the middle of massive firings and shakeups. KGO changed their format a long while back, the stalwart of liberal talk didn’t work and their ratings dropped, with the exception of course of the longtime KGO talk host Ronn Owens who does have a dedicated audience and instead he has now moved over to KSFO taking Mark Levin’s slot. Mark Levin has been taken off his current live 3pm to 6pm slot, and instead for now put into a “red hear”...

    Lee Rodgers, Rest in Peace Written by Melanie Morgan I really don't want to write about this, I don't want to think about this, and I don't want it to be true. Lee Rodgers, friend and mentor, is dead. I owe everything that I have in my professional life to Lee Rodgers, who took me under his wing back in 1988 in the halycon days of KGO Radio. Lee was a nighttime talk show host, a former rock and roll DJ, hired by my husband Jack Swanson. He hired him twice, in fact. "Lee Rodgers was a real radio guy....

    Let's start with all the things San Francisco Sheriff Ross Mirkarimi did wrong: 1) Mirkarimi bullied his wife, Eliana Lopez, when he grabbed her right arm and bruised it Dec. 31. 2) When police first contacted Mirkarimi about the episode, the sheriff did not cooperate with the investigation. Instead, he circled the wagons. 3) He hired a small army of attorneys for himself and his wife, which slowed the legal process. He's the elected sheriff of San Francisco, and he tried to move his trial outside the city. 4) When Mirkarimi pleaded guilty to a misdemeanor charge of false imprisonment,...

    Here's the first post-Labor Day chance for you to hear what the Republican candidates for Guv sound like live, unscripted and grilled by someone who knows how to ask questions: A "moderated conversation" at 9 a.m. Thursday on the highly-rated "Ronn Owens Program" on KGO (810 AM). And they'll be welcoming calls, too, so start dialing. Well, most of the Republican candidates will be there. Ex-Rep. Tom Campbell and Insurance Commish Steve Poizner will show.

    The Supreme Court is still pondering whether to permit fleeting expletives on the airwaves, but a San Francisco radio station isn’t waiting for the decision. A host on San Francisco’s top-rated KGO told his fans Tuesday that the station had fired him over comments he made a few days before the election about Joe Wurzelbacher, the suddenly famous unlicensed plumber who got caught up in the candidates’ tax policy debates

    Joe the Plumber has ticked off a lot of pundits, but over the weekend, he cost one his job, at least temporarily. Charles “Karel” Bouley, a weekend radio personality on San Francisco’s KGO, had just gone from a listener phone call into the top-of-the-hour news feed, with his microphone off– or so he thought. Instead, his mic was still live, broadcasting his musings on that night’s news to thousands of listeners to KGO, the Bay Area’s #1 radio station. He didn’t have nice things to say about Joe Wurzelbacher, the unlicensed Ohio plumber who ended up caught in the tug...

    SAN FRANCISCO – Bernie Ward, the popular radio talk-show host disgraced by federal child-pornography charges, was sentenced Thursday to seven years and two months in prison. Ward, who is married and has four children, was fired in December 2007 from KGO-AM in San Francisco after a grand jury indictment accused him of actively uploading and sharing images of child pornography on the Internet. His KGO-AM shows included the Sunday morning “God Talk” program.“I feel very sorry for you and your family,” Judge Vaughn Walker told Ward. The judge said he was troubled by Ward’s hypocrisy — while the former priest...
