NewsRadio KFBK has named a veteran journalist to be the new co-host during morning drive time for the Sacramento station.
The news and talk station has added Dan Mitchinson to co-host with longtime morning anchor Amy Lewis. Until recently, Lewis teamed with Ed Crane.
Crane split with KFBK 1530/ 93.1 FM in January. Crane, who read the news and also delivered essays from a conservative viewpoint, had co-hosted since 2008.
Mitchinson’s work on the radio has been heard on Fox and CBS networks. His television stories have appeared on “World News Tonight” on ABC and “Nancy Grace.”
Mitchinson, who has received the Edward R. Murrow Award for best newscast, has covered presidential visits, disasters and Hollywood entertainers.
Program director Bill White said in a press release that KFBK was lucky to get somebody of Mitchinson’s talent and credentials. Mitchinson joins the morning show April 6.
iHeartMedia Sacramento owns KFBK, Talk 650 KSTE-AM, V101 KHYL-FM, B92.5 KBEB-FM and 93.7 JACK-FM KQJK.
