Heidi and Frank Taking Over for Mark & Brian

It sure didn’t take long for KLOS-FM to officially fill the Mark & Brian void.

In a press release this morning from Cumulus Media, it was revealed that starting September 4, Heidi Hamilton and Frank Kramer will be settling into the still-warm chairs of Mark Thompson and Brian Phelps. It’s a wise choice. The likable pair have been doing their thing ably for many years on Star 98.7, KLSX 97.1 and, most recently, the Internet:

“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 & 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…

Added Kramer: “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.”

Thanks to a very loyal following, Heidi and Frank were able to turn their Internet channel into a very successful paid subscriber-supported program. Subscription rates ranged from $4.95/month to $49.95/year.
