Dave Fogel

UPDATE: There is a correction to add to the story below from yesterday's RAMP Newsletter... Yesterday we reported that Dave Fogel was the new midday personality at Cumulus Classic Hits KCMO-FM/Kansas City. While that fact is indeed true, there are a couple of points that need to be clarified -- 1) As it turns out, Fogel will be voicetracking the KCMO midday show from Chicago, where he will continue to co-host the morning show on Cumulus Classic Hits 94.7 WLS-FM, and 2) Fogel started his radio career in 1982 at the legendary former Top 40 KBEQ (Q104)/Kansas City, not KMXV. The original story is below...

Chicago radio pro Dave Fogel is returning to the market where he began his radio career -- Kansas City -- as the newly named midday personality at Cumulus Classic Hits KCMO-FM.

Fogel, the son of Kansas City radio and television legend Jerry Fogel, began his radio career at KMXV (Mix 93.3)/Kansas City, and went on to work in San Diego, DC and Detroit. From 2010-2013 Fogel co-hosted mornings on Cumulus Classic Hits WLS-FM/Chicago, followed by a five-year run with CBS Radio Classic Hits WJMK (104.3 K-Hits) until the Entercom merger last November and the subsequent flip to Classic Hip Hop WBMX (104.3 Jams). In January Fogel returned to WLS-FM as co-host of The WLS Wake Up Call.

Joe Russo, PD of KCMO-FM, said, "Dave is a superstar and a Kansas City guy through and through. Somebody pinch me -- Kelly Urich mornings and Dave Fogel in the workday on KCMO. What a fantastic lineup for our listeners." Fogel commented, "I'm thrilled to be on KCMO and back on the radio in Kansas City where my career started in the '80s right after MU."
