98.7FM to Drop Commercials for LA Kings Simulcast

In a unique move, KYSR (98.7FM) will drop their commercials during all Stanley Cup Final games and instead switch over to the Los Angeles Kings simulcast for live play-by-play on sister station KTLK AM 1150.

“Our listeners are so excited about the LA Kings’ success so far, and we are in the business of giving our listeners what they want,” Julie Pilat, 98.7 FM program director said in a statement. “They want to hear their favorite Alternative music, and stay close to what’s happening in the Stanley Cup Final. They can do both now with 98-7fm.”

The Stanley Cup Final gets underway Wednesday at 5 p.m.

Producer and radio host Morris O’Kelly will host a new show on Saturdays from 6-8:00 p.m. while David Cruz will be on the airwaves Sunday from 6-8:00 p.m. Both shows will begin this weekend.

According to KFI, the new shows will “discuss, dissect and investigate the important, often controversial issues of the day through the eyes of an eclectic collection of Southern California residents, urbanites and suburbanites, young and old, across race, gender and the political spectrum.”

In what looks like a direct response to the John and Ken controversy from last September, Clear Channel has hired former NBC4 anchor David Cruz to host a daily afternoon talk show on KTLK (1150-AM) from 3-6 p.m.

The David Cruz Show starts Monday and will air at the same time as John and Ken on KFI.

“This is a fresh new look at Southern California through the eyes of a well-known, veteran network television and radio journalist very familiar with the Latino community in the nation’s second-largest market,” Clear Channel Radio Los Angeles president Greg Ashlock said in a statement.

Cruz spent 12 years at NBC4 as a news anchor and reporter, winning both National and Regional Emmy Awards.
