Laid Off KOST-FM Personality Christine Martindale Goes Country

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.”

KOST-FM Cans DJ Bryan Simmons After Nearly Three Decades

Adult contemporary radio station KOST 103.5 FM fired longtime on-air personality Bryan Simmons on Friday evening, immediately following his regular weekday broadcast. Simmons, who was first hired by the station in 1982, was taken by surprise. He told the OC Register: “It’s been like a death in the family and feels very final this time. I’m still going through the process in my head, and it ain’t pretty.”

More from the OC Register:

Christine Martindale is replacing Simmons this week from 2 to 7 p.m., e-mailed KOST Program Director Stella Prado. Overall, KOST is usually in the top 5 among all stations in the Los Angeles-Orange County market.
