When Orange County Register radio columnist Gary Lycan reviewed the top stories of 2012, he suggested that Christine Martindale (pictured) was among the most prominent KOST 103.5 FM staffers affected by sweeping, nationwide Clear Channel layoffs. Befitting her status as a name-brand on-air personality, it did not take long for Martindale to find a new LA home.
Per an item in Radio Ink magazine, she will be taking over a new shift shortly:
Starting February 4, Martindale will be on KKGO FM 105.1 (“Go Country”) from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Monday through Friday. Station owner Saul Levine says, “She’s been one of the most talented and exciting on-air voices in Los Angeles radio.”
Martindale was with KOST for 12 years. Her new home meanwhile will celebrate, shortly after she begins broadcasting, its 54th year of operation under the same family ownership and management. In today’s consolidated radio market, that is rather astounding.
