Will KFI Call Letters Disappear?

(September 1, 1999) The fallout from the major announcement of AMFM, Inc. swapping 14 stations (one of the 14 is a sales rights situation, which is normally counted in a corporation's portfolio) for KFI and KOST continues. Jimmy DeCastro, president of the AMFM radio group, addressed the Cox employees at 10:30 yesterday morning in the auditorium at the Wilshire Ebell Theatre. It was announced that Ken Christensen would oversee the transition takeover. The announcement that Ken would be the transition leader was greeted favorably by the staff who remembered him highly from his days at KFI/KOST/KACE as general sales manager from 1992-95. Ken currently is the general manager at KYSR and KCMG. He worked in sales positions at WBCK-Battle Creek and WYAI and WYAY-Atlanta before joining Eastman Radio and the Katz rep firm for eight years.
