"'After a long and thoughtful search which overwhelmed us with great, established talent and new talent waiting to be discovered both in and out of radio, I couldn't be more pleased with the selection of the Heidi and Frank show to continue on the tradition that Mark and Brian set in place with 25 years of Hall of Fame radio,' said John Dickey, Co-COO of Cumulus Media.
"Station insiders had put Heidi Hamilton and Frank Kramer at the top of listed possibilities in the event Brian Phelps decided to join Mark Thompson in not continuing with the show after 25 years. Phelps announced he would not return during their farewell show last Friday.
Heidi and Frank's LA radio history includes shows on Star 98.7 FM and the 97.1 FM talk station known as KLSX.
"'Following the success of their show on KLSX, The Heidi and Frank show grabbed an even larger stage by migrating over to the Internet. The Heidi and Frank show became the #1 paid subscriber-supported Internet show in America,' the Cumulus announcement said."
