Jon St John Reaches 40 Year Mark and Gets Roasted

By Joe Nelson
   Reaching a milestone of 40 years in the same industry is seemingly rare these days. Heck, I am almost at 20 and it seems like an eternity.

   Jon St John has just met that mark. 40 years in the voice acting industry. Of course with his time on radio, he has been immortalized as the voice of the Video Game character Duke Nukem, along with a litany of other voices through the years.

   While appearing at SGC in Frisco, Tx, Jon was treated to a roast in his honor.
 
   Before you watch this roast, I must warn you, there may be more than one expletive spoken.


Congratulations Jon!
Proud to be your friend.

By Joe Nelson

Source: AllAccess

iHEARTMEDIA Top 40/Rhythmic WJMN (JAM'N 94.5)/BOSTON has announced the debut of "THE JAM’N MORNING SHOW WITH FRANKIE & ASHLEE," beginning MONDAY, JULY 27th. FRANKIE VINCI, from iHEARTMEDIA Top 40/MAINSTREAM KHTS (CHANNEL 93.3)/SAN DIEGO, will now join WJMN vet ASHLEE FELDMAN to host mornings.

FRANKIE has been hosting mornings on CHANNEL 93.3 since 2010. He will continue to host mornings with GEENA until further notice. FRANKIE's experience on-air includes roles at KIIS/LOS ANGELES, WKSS/HARTFORD and at sister station WXKS (KISS 108)/BOSTON. FRANKIE was born in BOSTON, raised in FRAMINGHAM, MA and is very active within the community, supporting a number of charities including AFTER SCHOOL ALL STARS, BOYS & GIRLS CLUB OF AMERICA, ST. BALDRICKS and RONALD MCDONALD HOUSE.

iHEARTMEDIA BOSTON SVP/Programming DYLAN SPRAGUE commented, "FRANKIE is one of our rising stars in iHEARTMEDIA, and we are thrilled to be able to bring him back to BOSTON and JAM’N 94.5. FRANKIE’s open, honest and vulnerable personality creates unique conversations that made him a success in SAN DIEGO. Being a BOSTON kid and JAM’N fan growing up, I know FRANKIE understands this city, our music and the lifestyle of the JAM’N listener. Pair that with ASHLEE FELDMAN’s deep connection with the JAM’N audience and you have a show that will be fun, edgy and will give young BOSTON a real voice on the radio."

FRANKIE added, "People may wonder why I'm giving up the perfect weather of SAN DIEGO for the snow, rain and funny BOSTON accents, but BOSTON has been and always will be my home. Growing up I always listened to JAM'N 94.5 and now I am going to host the morning show. Dreams do come true. Thank you to iHEARTMEDIA for allowing me this opportunity to go home."

FRANKIE succeeds RAMIRO, a longtime WJMN personality who has stepped down.

Congratulations Frankie! Best wishes.

Rumors of a Flip

By Joe Nelson

I never just say things for shock value. There is always substantial research done before I post.

   So, I have on numerous occasions in the last week heard rumor of a station flip. Possibly even two. I won't reveal what stations I heard about but just know I am monitoring this very closely and my birdies are talking to me. As we say in the biz... Stay Tuned!

KGB's Big Jon to Emcee Concert at The Lakes

By Joe Nelson

   This weekend, two of SanDiegoRadio.org's favorite things are coming together into one incredible event.
  
   Saturday, July 18th at 5:00PM, the Santee-Lakeside Rotary Foundation and the Santee Lakes Foundation presents 'Concert at the Lakes' featuring Bella Donna, a tribute to Fleetwood Mac and Stevie Nicks.  Bella Donna's opening act will be Acoustic Blue.

   This is an important fundraiser that helps fund programs to provide financial incentives to high school students as they move on to college along with raising funds to help promote the importance of outdoor recreation, conservation and environmental sustainability at Santee Lakes.

   This fundraiser will be hosted by 101KGB's very own Big Jon, Bob and Coe's morning show producer and fill-in on air personality.  Here's your chance to come out and support these vital Santee charities and see Big Jon in action on the mic.

   Big Jon tells SanDiegoRadio "I'm excited to host Acoustic Blue for the second year in a row, and Bella Donna for the first time" "The Santee Concert by the lakes this year is going to be better than last year! I didn't think it was possible. Bella Donna is an amazing tribute band to BOTH Fleetwood Mac and Stevie Nicks!" "I've heard about Bella Donna and seen a few of their YouTube videos, but I've been told, from a good authority, that they are better in person. It's all for a good cause and a good time!"
