“Heather Froglear has been a champion of the K-FROG brand for three decades, and I couldn’t think of anyone more fitting to lead this station forward,” said Michael Valenzuela, Senior Vice President and Market Manager, Audacy Riverside. “Despite her years of service to this community, she still remains as one of the most active and engaging personalities in both Southern California and in country radio, and I’m thrilled to elevate her to this next chapter of her career.”
“For nearly 30 years, I’ve been blessed to work and create great radio at KFRG,” said Froglear. “It’s time to put my poms pons down and assume the role of coach for an iconic, heritage brand and a station I so dearly love and believe in. For that I could not be more thrilled. I am truly grateful for both Tim Roberts and Michael Valenzuela’s trust in me.”
