For radio, it was the usual mixed bag of financial woes (despite a revenue bump from election spending), budget cuts, format changes, firings and farewells to some major personalities. Here's some of what went down in 2016:. •Al Hart died on Jan. 14, days after turning 88. Hart, part of San Francisco radio since 1960, was highly respected. Said Stan Bunger, who replaced him as KCBS’ morning co-anchor in 2000: “He sounded like the world’s nicest guy because he actually was the world’s nicest guy. •In February, Dan Hicks died at 74. Although best known as a musician, songwriter and sardonic wit, he was a radio fan from his childhood in Santa Rosa. He created memorable jingles for KSAN in the ’70s and performed at a station reunion at Yoshi’s in 2014. •In March, I whined about announcers with verbal tics and generally bad habits (“You know,” “like,” “I mean,” “I tell you what,” “Listen”) and... If anything, Bob Fitzpatrick, the Warriors’ TV play-by-play guy, is uptalking more than ever. •Glimmers of hope: In visits to Damon Bruce at “The Game” (KGMZ) and Ray White at KDFC, I found two broadcasters who refuse to address listeners as “everybody,” like most of their peers do. It’s, like, a start. •In the spring, while KALW celebrated its 75th anniversary, we had the April Fool’s eve massacre at Cumulus Media’s KGO and KFOG. Giving up its short-lived all-news format (excepting Ronn Owens and weekend shows), the company pink-slipped a couple dozen staffers and flipped back to talk, billing a “Next Generation,” one that includes the dean of local talkers, Owens. •Meantime, KFOG proclaimed an “Evolution” and canned DJs Renee Richardson, Annalisa, Bill Webster, Dred Scott and “Acoustic Sunrise” host Rosalie Howarth (who was later brought back). I heard later that a couple of the staffers were offered a chance to reapply for their jobs — with a pay cut. • As KFOG evolved, KISQ (“Kiss”) switched from old-school R&B to “soft adult contemporary” music as “the Breeze,” going after KOIT’s listeners. To co-host mornings with Carolyn McArdle, iHeart brought in Jack Kulp, who’d been let go by KOIT in 2015. •In June, iHeart Media’s KOSF (103. 7), which had been playing oldies from the ’60s through the ’80s, doubled down on only the ’80s, hiring... •Dan Sorkin, one of the most gifted personalities to grace San Francisco airwaves, died in June at age 89.
