WBAL is seeing some changes as weekday morning show host Kimberly Klacik has exited the radio station, announcing her exit on Twitter Friday. 

Klacik took over the late morning/afternoon slot for WBAL in April from Yuripzy Morgan, who left the role for a run in politics. No further information on whether both parties opted to part ways or if it was indeed Klacik who wanted to start a new venture.

“I know many have asked, and I always appreciate the love & concern from all my friends on social media,” Klacik tweeted

“Just wanted to post an update: I truly thank WBAL from the bottom of my heart for the experience, but it’s time to move on. I’ll share my next steps with you soon!” 

Before becoming the WBAL host from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., Klacik was a regular on their airwaves at the station since she has also been a regular contributor to afternoon host Torrey Snow’s show.

    On 11.4.22, Kim made an extremely offensive tweet concerning candidate Stacey Abrams. She even tagged Ms. Abrams on the tweet. After receiving quite a bit of backlash in the comments section, she doubled down on the tweet on both Twitter and Facebook. She hasn’t been heard since on the station and the tweet is still up. I truly believe that tweet has something to do with her show ending and if so, I don’t blame the station.

      I really enjoyed listen to her. Keep me posted as to her next venture.

      Good riddance! This hypocritical ex-stripper should have never been hired. She is a classless individual who is attempting to profit politically off of the unfortunate circumstances in the city. Does the city need help? Absolutely! That is not disputable. But she should have used her platform for something other than tearing down anyone with a (D) behind their name. Thank you WBAL for sending her back to her Republican hole and I’m not alone in hoping she rots away quietly.

Valley PBS and Newstalk 580/105.9 KMJ have collaborated to produce a one-hour documentary recounting the story of the renowned news talk station’s 100-year history. In the teaser trailer for “KMJ: 100 Years in the Valley,” host John Broeske jests about the non-existence of radios during KMJ’s inception. 

The documentary sheds light on the station’s influence on Fresno and the broader Central Valley of California, including its personalities, throughout the past century. KMJ started broadcasting with only 50 watts of power on March 23, 1922, which increased to an impressive 50,000 watts before WWII. 

The film was written and directed by Emmy Award-winning filmmaker Jeff Aiello, with KMJ Program Director Blake Taylor as a producer. “KMJ: 100 Years in The Valley” premieres on Thursday, March 30, at 7 PM PT.

You can view it anytime on the PBS App via Video.ValleyPBS.org or YouTube.com/ValleyPBS.

Longtime WFLA Host Jack Harris Says He’s Been Fired

“I didn’t think I was that big of a burden on them. I was making a seventh of what I made three or four years ago.”

Longtime Tampa radio host Jack Harris claims he has been fired by NewsRadio 970 WFLA.

“After I signed off from my show at 7:00 AM today, iHeartRadio bosses told me that they were cutting back on expenses and had to let me go,” Harris told The Tampa Bay Times. “I didn’t think I was that big of a burden on them. I was making a seventh of what I made three or four years ago.”

The 81-year-old Harris had been with the station in several tenures since 1970 but had hosted on the station for the last 29 years, most recently on weekdays from 5:00-7:00 AM as host of AM Tampa Bay.

When reached by Barrett News Media for comment, WFLA Program Director John Mamola declined the opportunity to speak on the subject.

Harris — who was insistent that he was not playing a practical joke on listeners with April Fool’s around the corner — shared he was saddened he didn’t get the opportunity to have a farewell show and thank listeners for their years together. “They are what I will miss most.

When asked what his next step will be, Harris was unsure.

“I might look for part time work on the radio somewhere,” the longtime host said. “Or maybe I will retire. I am an old geezer after all.”

Joe Rogan: Media Leaves Out ‘What It Doesn’t Want Front and Center’

“All it is, is like ‘January 6th. January 6th. Did you see what they did? — Trump is coming back’.”

Podcast host Joe Rogan has grown weary of the news media’s coverage of certain events and shared his belief that it only cares about presenting one side of arguments.

During The Joe Rogan Experience, the eponymous host shared his displeasure with the way current events are reported on.

“The media has lost its hold over the narrative,” said Rogan. “Now, the media conveniently leaves out anything that it doesn’t want to be at the front and center — in terms of things that people concentrate on and talk about.”

He then discussed stories he believes the general public has an interest in, but aren’t being covered, pointing to large protests in France over potential reforms in social security and also protests in Israel after Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu announced plans for changes to the nation’s judicial system.

“And you’re not hearing a f***ing peep about it, you know?” Rogan said. “All it is is ‘January 6th. January 6th. Did you see what they did? — Trump is coming back, but January 6th looms large.’”

“How about the fact that the guy who’s the president right now can’t form a f***ing sentence? He makes up words and stumbles through things and no one says a god damn thing about it,” Rogan concluded.
