Heidi and Frank replacing Mark and Brian on KLOS
Cumulus Media’s heritage rocker KLOS-FM LA announced the return of the Heidi and Frank show to the station for mornings beginning 9/4. They replace the long-running “Mark & Brian” show. On Friday, Brian Phelps of Mark & Brian announced he was leaving.
“After a long and thoughtful search which overwhelmed us with great, established talent and new talent waiting to be discovered both in and out of radio, I couldn’t be more pleased with the selection of The Heidi and Frank show to continue on the tradition that Mark and Brian set in place with 25 years of Hall of Fame radio,” said John Dickey, Co-COO of Cumulus Media.
The show features Heidi Hamilton and Frank Kramer. They started their long successful run in LA as the top rated morning show on Clear Channel’s Star 98.7. CBS then hired them away to join a legendary cast of talent on Talker 97.1 KLSX.
After KLSX became CHR AMP Radio, The Heidi and Frank show migrated over to the Internet. The Heidi and Frank show became the #1 paid subscriber-supported Internet show in America.
“KLOS is Rock. KLOS is the definitive iconic rock radio station in the World. It’s one of those stations that evokes a feel good emotion while you’re driving in you car. I’m beyond honored that Frank Kramer and I have been invited to become a part of something so legendary! The Heidi and Frank Show fans are second to none and I know they will be with us on this long fun ride together,” said Heidi Hamilton.
“If it would have been any other station than KLOS, I would have said no. We have a huge following across the world and only a station as large and iconic as KLOS could lure us back to radio. To be given this opportunity is an honor and a privilege. With the continued support from my partner, Heidi Hamilton, and the fans that never left us, and the fans waiting for us to return, the next 25 years are going to be one hell of a ride,” added Frank Kramer.
