Natural Bridges Media launched Community 90.7 K-Squid KSQD Santa Cruz CA on

Posted: 17 Feb 2019 12:48 PM PST

Cumulus Media Sports 680 KNBR San Francisco has announced the addition of

CUMULUS MEDIA announces that it has appointed Bay Area on-air personality

Jeremiah Crowe, Program Director, KNBR, said: “I’m extremely excited to
welcome Mark back to the Bay Area and into our KNBR family. “KNBR Tonight”
is about connecting with fans as the games are being played, and Mark will
excel in that arena across all KNBR platforms. Listeners now also get to
hear Drew shine as a solo host in his own time slot. “KNBR Tonight” will
continue to serve as THE nightly destination for local sports talk, and I
can’t wait to hear these two dynamic personalities back-to-back on The
Sports Leader!”

Willard is a Foster City native who comes to KNBR from a midday hosting
role with XTRA 1360AM in San Diego. He has previously hosted shows on FOX
Sports Radio Network, as well as 710 ESPN and ESPN’s SportsNation, based in
Los Angeles. He is a lifelong fan of Bay Area sports teams.


Willard said: “It is an absolute dream come true to come home and join
KNBR.*My primary career goal has been to have the opportunity to connect
with Bay Area sports fans, so listeners can rest assured, I will never take
the relationship for granted.*I want to thank Jeremiah Crowe, Doug Harvill
and Cumulus’ corporate leadership team for their vision.*And I want to
thank my wife and kids for supporting me through this adventure!”


Hoffar grew up in San Leandro and been a host on KNBR for over three years,
first as primary host of “The Audible” morning show on KNBR 1050, then as
the lead host of “KNBR Tonight” on KNBR 680.

Hoffar said: “I am grateful and excited to land in this new 10pm-Midnight
timeslot, plus provide pregame coverage for the 49ers and Warriors. I was
raised on KNBR and am looking forward to both growing my on-air career with
the station and adding to its legacy as ‘The Sports Leader!’”
