iHeartMedia Makes Lineup Changes At KOA, KHOW, and KBPI Denver
iHeartMedia has revamped the on-air lineups at News/Talk 850 KOA Denver/94.1 K231BQ Golden, Conservative Talk 630 KHOW Denver and Rock 107.9 KBPI Fort Collins/KBPL Pueblo/K300CP Denver.
KHOW afternoon host Michael Brown is moving to evenings at KOA from 7-8pm replacing “Prime Time Sports with Cory Lopez”. “The Huckuva Show with Micahel Brown” will then expand to 7-11pm on Monday, December 3. The program will exclusively feature Colorado stories and news.
Replacing Brown at KHOW is Dan Caplis and Krista Kafer. A local lawyer, Caplis most recently hosted afternoons at Salem Media’s 710 KNUS Denver while Kafer is a columnist for the Denver Post.
Finally at KBPI, longtime afternoon host Colfax has exited. Midday host Beardo moves to afternoons while Hot AC “My 99.9” KVUU Pueblo/Colorado Springs afternoon host Laura Hall is currently hosting middays.
Friday was my last day at KBPI. Made you a video.
