San Jose, CA – – Bonneville International – San Francisco / Bay Area based KUFX-FM (98.5 KFOX) The South Bay’s Classic Rock Station welcomes Joey (Joey Vlazny) to mornings beginning Monday, April 16th. Joey most recently hosted mornings at KRBQ-FM (Q-102) and afternoons at KOSF-FM. Joey’s radio journey also includes stops in Chicago, Dallas and now San Jose, California.
Concurrently, San Jose rock legend Chris Jackson moves to afternoons (2pm-7pm), the day-part where he started on KUFX back on March 4, 1991.
“Joey’s smart work ethic, strong creativity and passion for our business elevates our brand awareness” said Brian Figula, 98.5 KFOX Program Director. “I look forward to adding him to the team with Chris Jackson to dominate the San Jose radio market”.
“Not being on the radio was driving me nuts” said Joey. “Sleeping in till 10am every day was nice, but 3 months of that was enough. I was incredibly honored to even be considered to work on a South Bay institution like KFOX. Taking over mornings from the legendary Chris Jackson certainly adds some pressure to the gig, but I’m excited for the challenge”.
