Jay Alan, the smooth-voiced co-anchor of KFBK's afternoon news, has been appointed by Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger to be the communications director of the California Conservation Corps.
Alan - real name: Jay Alan Wierenga - has delivered the news with partner Kitty O'Neal since 2003. Before that, he was a TV news anchor at Fox40. According to a press release from the governor's office, Alan's new position "does not require Senate confirmation and the compensation is $95,000. Wierenga is a Republican."
No word yet from Alan Eisenson, KFBK's operations director, or Jeff Holden, Clear Channel-Sacramento's GM, about any replacement for Alan at KFBK.
It's no secret (at least in the radio biz) that Alan has political ambitions. Might this be the first step toward elective office?
