been a game changer for KBFF and I am very confident that the same thing
will happen as they join KTFM. I’m excited to watch the competitive
landscape change in San Antonio as Brooke Jubal continue their growth with
Alpha Media.” “I’d like to think of Brooke Jubal in the Morning as the
hardest working morning show in radio and we can’t wait to take on this
next challenge. I’m thrilled to bring the success we’ve had in Seattle and
Portland to San Antonio. I can’t thank Alpha Media enough for another great
opportunity,” remarked Jubal. “The fastest way to even the competitive
landscape is to fight good content with even better content. Brooke
Jubal’s stellar ratings record can be directly attributed to their ability
to connect and make people laugh with top notch content. It’s a great
addition to our recently revamped Energy 94.1 team and I can’t wait to get

years. Jubal currently hosts “Brooke Jubal in the Morning” and can be seen
throughout the country as a regular on FOX TV’s Dish Nation. Jubal also
writes and produces comedy bits and daily topical jokes that are used by
radio stations nationwide. In other words; he loves the craft of comedy so
much that he even writes jokes for his “competition”. The son of two
ministers, Jubal attributes his quirky sense of humor to, well, growing up
with the name Jubal. Brooke has worked in morning radio for over 12 years
and has hosted Top 40 radio’s first all female morning drive show and has
most recently found her radio match with Jubal Flagg. Brooke and the crew

impressions and characters and has a very unique laugh and positive
attitude. Eventually, he crossed paths with Jubal Flagg. Jose opened a few
comedy shows for Jubal and quickly developed a friendship. Once a position
came open on the radio show, Jubal asked Jose if he wanted to audition, and
Jose has been on the show ever since! He now travels the country doing
comedy. Jose says, “When your dreams start coming true, no one can bring
you down!! Except Jubal”
