Eric Singer, 24/7
KRDO/Channel 13 announced on Monday that weekend anchor Eric Singer would be joining the morning news team on KRDO (105.5 FM and 1240 AM) beginning April 30.
He'll replace Kyle Troxel as Lee Richards' co-host from 5-9 a.m. weekdays on the news stations. He'll also continue to anchor KRDO TV's weekend news, meaning Singer will be on the air seven days a week.
"Eric brings years of experience and a familiar voice, which we're just thrilled about," said Mike Lewis, KRDO radio's program director and afternoon host. "Itt shows our commitment to providing the best local news."
Singer said he hasn't worked in radio since a stint in Lubbock, Texas, back in 1983, but he's looking forward to returning to the medium.
"I love radio," Singer said. "I really believe that the great radio people were the precursors to the great television people. They were leaders in the industry."
Troxel, a former TV reporter who served as KRDO radio's news director, will fill in for Lewis for a couple weeks before starting a new job as the spokesman for COSMIX.
