Mr. KFI Becomes Mr. KTLK Begining Monday

Before you
Dear reader, we're asking you to help us keep local news available for all. Your tax-deductible financial support keeps our stories free to read, instead of hidden behind paywalls. We believe when reliable local reporting is widely available, the entire community benefits. Thank you for investing in your neighborhood.

Yes, we know he was most recently Mr. KABC, but we knew Mr. K before he had to shorten his name because of the transient and disloyal nature of local radio. We took an oath to protect Mr. KFI from all enemies foreign and domestic, and we would have joined him in his one-man crusade against Veganism but if we did it would no longer be a one-man crusade.

Mr. is moving to the former Air America station KTLK and he will be squooshed right inbetween the two best KTLK hosts, Randi Rhodes and Ed Schultz which will be interesting since Mr. KFI always claimed to be a Libertarian.

The move was necessary since KABC tried to move the Mr. KABC show to a 11p - 2am slot despite having great ratings with the Disney-owned station. "With two youngsters, the new proposed hours just didn’t work for our family. I am not yet 40 years old and I have a long career ahead of me. I have been a ratings and revenue winner working evenings at KABC and I have nothing but warm thoughts about the station and hopes for their continued success," he told LA Radio.

The only troubling thing about the move is on Mr. K's new page on KTLK it says to expect a slightly different type of show..."The formerly top-rated evening host, Germain will bring a modified version of his unique "no guests, no topics, no screener" format to contrast standard talk radio.

There is nothing in that genius format that needs to be modified, people.
