Chris Cantore Joins 100.7 San Diego For Mornings
Longtime San Diego morning host Chris Cantore is back in the daypart as he joins TEGNA Variety Hits “100.7 San Diego” KFMB-FM.
Cantore, who previously had long runs in mornings at Alternative “91X” XETRA-FM and “FM 94.9” KBZT and has also worked at AAA 102.1 KPRI and Sports 1090 XEPRS. Cantore had been filling in on the KFMB-FM morning show since the departure of Dave Shelly and Chainsaw from then “100.7 KFM-BFM” last summer.
Cantore began his career as a morning show assistant at 100.7 after graduating from San Diego State in 1993. He is best known for hosting the longest running morning show at Modern Rock XTRA (91X). His local roots run deep with stints at KPRI and KBZT in the San Diego market.
Director of FM Programming, Mike V. Vasquez, said, “Cantore has that cool, laid-back vibe that is so easy to connect with. He’s not only entertaining, but he’s an authentic guy who cares about our community. He epitomizes all things San Diego and is an ideal ambassador for our station. I’m thrilled to have him joining our 100.7 San Diego family!”
Cantore stated, “I don’t believe in coincidences and it’s no coincidence that after a two-year hiatus, I am returning to the San Diego airwaves on the same frequency I started my broadcasting career, exactly 25 years ago. It honestly feels like home, or a comfortable hoodie. I am beyond thankful and humbled by this incredible opportunity and look forward to building something pretty special for San Diego in 2019 and beyond.”
