Entercom’s purchase of San Francisco‘s only urban leaning station KBLX comes with a major change in programming as well as the morning show. Entercom purchased the rights from Inner City‘s creditors earlier this month and they will begin operating the station this Tuesday, May 1 via a Time Brokerage Agreement. Industry vet Kevin Brown has probably been at KBLX for 20 years (or more). This would be considered five lifetimes for most urban radio people. The changes that have taken place at the station involve letting the Kevin Brown morning show as well as his PD duties go and Steve Harvey will take over. Harvey’s HUGE mass appeal and second week with a number 1 movie give the former comedian carte blanche to just about anything he wants in media right now and it puts him miles ahead of former competitor Tom Joyner who lost his position in the Number One market last week when WRKS folded the format ending their deal with The Tom Joyner Morning show and merging resources with WBLS where Harvey is already winning in mornings there.
