  1. So this effectively undoes the merger between KLAC and FSR back in January 2009 (in which Steve Hartman, Petros and Money were all promoted to national gigs).

    Jason Smith used to be on FSR way back in the beginning, and JT was originally heard in his now-new evening slot. Also note that this move also reinstates Ben Maller to the weekday overnight slot he had prior to the same January 2009.
