CBS Radio’s 97.1 AMP Radio (KAMP-FM) announced Carson Daly will host morning drive (6:00-10:00am, pt) beginning 1/4/10. Carson returns to his radio roots in SoCal where, in the past, he worked for 106.7 KROQ. His four hour program will be heard on-air, and online at www.ampradio.com, as well as myriad mobile devices including the iPhone and Blackberry.
“It is very exciting to be back on the airwaves doing mornings on AMP RADIO and to be back in business with my friends at CBS Radio,” said Daly. “Now, not only can people fall asleep to my late night show on NBC, but they can wake up with me on the radio too. I’m thrilled to join a thriving new station in my own hometown.”
