Greg Kihn No Longer on the Air at KFOX FM 

September 14, 2012 – San Francisco, CA – Greg Kihn, the highly-rated Classic Rock Radio morning man in the San Francisco Bay Area and KFOX FM have parted ways as of September 14. Mr. Kihn just celebrated his 16th Anniversary with KFOX FM, which is believed to be the longest reigning radio industry tenure for a morning man with a single station west of the Mississippi.

Aside from radio, Kihn is renowned for his early 80’s music career with smash MTV video hits The Breakup Song (They Don’t Write ‘em Like That), and Jeopardy. Kihn has also been pursuing his literary career since the 1996 release of his first of four novels and one book of short stories, which are slated to be released digitally on iPad and Kindle later in 2012/early 2013. Kihn plans to release his fifth novel, Rubber Soul, by the end of 2012. 

Kihn also has a screenplay in development for a new cable television series about how the mafia ran the music industry in New York City during the early 1960’s. Described as a cross between ‘The Sopranos-Meets-Almost Famous,’ “45 RPM, could be on a major cable network in 2013.

Regarding radio, Kihn states, “I am unemployed, along with a large percentage of my fellow Americans, but I am an optimist. I believe for every door that closes others open. Surely, another broadcast studio door will open and I’ll be back on the air soon doing what I love to do most; entertaining my loyal fans.”

  1. This really saddens me to hear of this news. Greg Kihn did not only make KFOX, he WAS KFOX! The station won’t be the same without him.
    On the same note – Greg (if you’re reading this), I still wish you well and Godspeed in your continuing endeavors as you still have an abundance of you’re gifts and talent to deliver to your fans. God Bless you and I hope to see you at the gigs!

  2. Besides just plain missing your morning musings all I can think to say is when one door closes, another opens. I cannot wait to see what you do with the next chapter of your life. I know it will be awesome. God Bless and thanks for the years of morning commute company.

  3. :( This sux! I heard Webster on the air this morning and scratched my head, but they were still calling it the Greg Kihn Show in the promos, so I just thought you took the day off. As someone said above, radio is a brutal business! I enjoyed your show Greg, and I hope to hear you back on the air somewhere soon!

  4. And you just celebrated your 16th anniversary! Does not compute. At least it wasn’t on your birthday. That happened to a long-time news anchor here on the Central Coast…fired on his birthday after years of being on the air. Radio is a brutal business. Despite our budget woes, I think I’m happier working for California State Parks.

  5. Truly sad, they’ve lost a legend and I hope that someone grabs him up. It was a great show to listen to….I listen all the way from Kansas City because it was that AMAZING!!!
    Hope to hear soon of a new station that Greg is with and that I can listen to again online.
