Bay Bridge Cranes Coverage on KGO
Big changes this week over at KGO. Here's the announcement from March 31st:
Cumulus Media announced Thursday, many KGO Radio and KFOG employees were laid off due to restructuring purposes.
Legendary talk show host Ronn Owens signed off from KGO Radio for the last time, but his fans will be able to follow him to another station.
Owens has dominated Bay Area radio for 40 years and is now moving to Cumulus Media sister station, KSFO.
When I lived in California, I enjoyed listening to KGO as I was traveling around the Bay Area. My office had a good radio signal and I would bring in my CC Radio and listen to all the things that were going on while I was working.
On the morning of May 1, 2002, KGO broke out of their traditional radio schedule to cover tall cranes that were being transported to the Port of Oakland from China. At the time, there was some concern that the cranes might be too high to go under the bridge.
Let's step back in time and listen to the KGO Bay Bridge coverage:
