Jeff & The Showgram Missing From KYXY

By Joe Nelson



   A birdie clued me in, and I double verified this. Jeff and the Showgram appear to be gone from KYXY.

No Reason was available, but more to come as it develops.

They are already gone from the website.

What is going on?!? How are they just going to remove a San Diego INSTITUTION without saying a word?!?

David Najera said...

One word Entercom.

Paul Williams said...

KyXy is owned by CBS, not Entercom, unless that is where they're headiheading.

The show just hasn't been the same since Jer left. I wondered what happened when I didn't hear them. They will be missed!

I think Jeff (and Jerry ... and crew) are two of the greatest people to have graced San Diego's airwaves. But as noted in this San Diego Reader article

https://www.sandiegoreader.com/news/2017/jul/03/stringers-jeff-and-showgram-gone-kyxy/#

Jeff and crew were #12 in morning drive in the key 25-54 demo while pulling in '#1 #2 type money'. So I'm not sure they can call this a 'surprise'. :-(

Here's hoping they DO catch on with another outlet - and they MAYBE update their content by minimizing the 'rip and read' Hollywood gossip focus and rather relate and interact with the San Diego audience - as they once did.

When I heard they were not on the other morning (I am a loyal DSC person, but sometime I channel surf during their ridiculously long, frequent commercial breaks), I wondered what was up... then, on Tuesday, was it? Dave announces that Sara Perry has left KFMB FM for a competitor and IN THEIR TIME SLOT. It doesn't sound like she's leaving town, so I wonder if Sara is replacing the Showgram? Best of luck to all involved. I have no love for the Jeff/Jer or Jeff/Showgram shows, but it sucks to lose your job, so fingers crossed someone else in SD picks them up for their fans.
