The Chronicle‘s Ken Hoffman reports that radio personality Sam Malone begins his stint on KTRH-740 on September 26:
Have you seen those stark black billboards around town with the white lettering … “See ya! … Soon!” I’m guessing they’re designed to get people talking about Sam Malone’s new talk show on KTRH (740 AM).
“See ya!” was Malone’s catch phrase for 12 years when he hosted a morning show on KRBE (104.1 FM). He left the station several months ago and has been sitting out a noncompete clause in his KRBE contract.
KTRH programming boss Ken Charles wouldn’t confirm that he’s behind the “See Ya!” billboards, but he sure didn’t deny it, either.
“We eagerly await Sam’s arrival on KTRH. If those billboards get people anticipating his new show, then I’m very happy,” Charles said.
Malone’s show will air 10 a.m.-noon on KTRH, starting Sept. 26.
