The Bay Area Swamp Meet is open!

Entercom has hired veteran Bay Area rock programmer Larry Sharp to program at least it's new 98.5 KUFX (San Jose) which was purchased from Clear Channel's Aloha Trust. What remains is a San Francisco signal to go with KUFX. Will it be KDFC moving to 95.7 and KUFX simulcasted on 102.1 and the demise of  KBWF (The Wolf)? Larry programmed KFOG and The Bone for Susquehanna and then Cumulus before leaving the post last year and heading North to Washington state. Radio-Info (San Francisco board) says the flips will happen today at 3p-4p. 

Here's some more skinny from Bay Area Music and Radio wizard Ben Fong Torres who told me: "around 4, KFOX introduces Big Rick for afternoons (I think), and there will be news about simulcasting on 102.1, and about KDFC moving to 90.3, pushing KUSF off the air and online only." This means KBWF is safe and classical moves to 90.3 replacing KUSF.
