Chris Baker, the fiery conservative host who quit KTLK-FM a week or so ago, has resurfaced in his old stomping ground: Houston. The Mike McGuff blog reports Baker will belittle lefties on 700-AM KSEV.
This will be the third Houston station Baker has worked for. According to Arbitron, KSEV is a bit player, with a puny 0.3 percent share of the Houston market. KTLK’s number here is 11 times that.
KSEV’s tiny footprint doesn’t exactly conform to hints Baker dropped about his future after quitting: “It’s the evolution of our industry and I chose to put myself in a position to be ready for the media of the future, while at the same time providing security for my family. My next opportunity does just that and I am very excited.”
Maybe KSEV has big growth plans, or the host has another shoe to drop. But if not, looks like Baker dropped in the pecking order.
