KGO Mornings Returning To Local

12

Next month in San Francisco Cumulus will move the syndicated show Armstrong & Getty from KGO to KSFO and launch The Morning Show With Nikki Medoro. Veteran newsman Bret Burkhart joins Medoro, who moves to mornings from afternoon drive where she worked with Chip Franklin.

Market Manager Doug Harvill said Medoro is a compelling and proven talk show host. “Her upbeat and engaging personality makes her the perfect fit to take over mornings on KGO. She’ll team with veteran news anchor Bret Burkhart to deliver an entertaining, informative, and interactive morning show. At the same time, Armstrong and Getty have established a very dedicated and loyal Bay Area audience that will follow them to sister station KSFO.”

Lee Hammer, Operations Manager, Cumulus San Francisco, and KGO/KSFO Program Director, said: “Nikki has done a tremendous job working with Chip Franklin in afternoon drive, and she’s earned this opportunity to host mornings on KGO. Nikki and Bret will bring a fresh approach to the day’s news, both locally and nationally. They’ll also invite the Bay Area’s listeners to join the conversation and share their opinions.”

  1. Really sorry to hear that KGO has choice to have only one voice now. A&G was my favorite on KGO. Susan above says it well. They were objective and gave us a lot of news that is often not heard elsewhere. I will be following them to KSFO.

  2. Can’t believe KGO is replacing A&G–I like Nikki, but there’s no competing w/Armstrong & Getty. They’re such a unique combination of news and hilarity–one-of-a-kind like no other; pure entertainment that my friends and I enjoy every morning. You will be losing a big chunk of your audience. After 40 years, I’m switching to 560!

  3. Hopefully they won’t fill her new time slot with Balance of Nature advertisements…. or with those financially suspect OTA…Online Trading Academy commercials that the other female host flaunts every day and even does radio infomercials for. Shameful as so many unsuspecting rookie investors get snagged by them. If you didn’t know, after the “free” class, the median…follow up classes cost in the neighborhood of $7,000 to $25,000. Nothing indicates those who get hard-sale sold on those ever gain enough investment benefits to ever begin to recover even their tuition, let alone make more returns than those who don’t take the expensive courses.
    The host herself knows next to nothing about such investing, yet allows this big advertiser to lure in naive listeners. Reminds me of a hard sell time-share program, except you don’t even end up with the use of a condo for 2 weeks each year.
    While I’m on worthless products…
    Balance of Nature daily dose 3 veggie capsules plus 3 fruit capsules give you a combined daily total of 4.8 grams.
    Less than 5 grams total per day according to the label. They tell you that is after the 85% water is removed.
    Thus doing simple math, they start with 35 grams of actual fruits and vegetables.
    Then they tell you that you are getting 10 servings of fruits and vegetables.
    But 35 grams (1.25 ounces) is less than one serving of either fruits or vegetables.
    So you pay for 10 servings and end up with maximum 1 serving.
    Its just insane they can get away from this enormous lie.
    Bad enough they claim hair growth, cold cures, energy, muscle enhancement… and a endless array of other benefit… all unproven.
    But to actually only give you 1 serving or less… while claiming 10 servings or more is outright theft.
    Does KGO speak up… Where is Michael Finney, consumer reporter.
    OH well, I do enjoy the shows, but ripping off listeners is immoral.

    • OTA is a wonderful company which has allowed me to learn to trade and generate several thousand consistently on top of my full time job….so not a scam…not easy but no scam…to each their own…. she knows nothing about investing but you know everything? ha.

  4. Agree with Jim. A&G & staff was my fav, Kgo show, esp. after all of the moves last few years. I’m a lifetime Demo, independent, but loved A&G personalities. I’m out too after 40 years of listening to Kgo. Of course I’m out of demographics so Kgo doesn’t care anyway.

  5. Why are Armstrong and Getty moving…exactly? Going Local, Local…yeah right. I loved KGO because I got a lot of different perspectives on one channel. Some funny, some controversial, some irritating, but always provocative. Now you’ve gone total liberal during the day. That is BORING Lee Hammer. Blah, Blah, Blah…show hosts all saying the same thing. Dude, what are you thinking. Sounds like Mark, Pat, and Chip got together and cried that A & G made us “uncomfortable”. Frankly, Mark should have openly disagreed with comments his lead-in made on the air. It would have made for some great radio. You’re doing a disservice to people like me who listen to one channel but want a variety of opinions whether I agree or not. For the record I’m not a Trump fan. Good luck Nikki, but ratings will crater. I’m out.

  6. So happy for this change. Nikki was a great balance with Chip in the afternoon so I’m sure she will also be great in the AM . I stopped listening in the morning when the clueless brothers show was on.

  7. Never heard of her. Do hope she is not some wacked liberal Trump hater. I like Armstrong & Getty since they speak with an objective view on subjects. They bring up news that is never brought up on other news shows. The question is why not? Journalism today is starting to sound like communism. Susan/Newark
