Craig West

Over the past few months, JD Chandler has been blessing your mornings while we have been eagerly looking for a new Morning Show team. After much searching and praying, we've found the perfect match! Listen on Friday morning, November 4th, to hear who it is and in the meantime get to know the voices you will hear:

Craig West

  • I was born in Fort Worth, TX, raised in Atlanta, GA, and went to high school in Wisconsin. 
  • In '90 my wife and I eloped in my '67 VW Bug to Carlsbad, CA and have been together ever since! We also have two kids and a dog that sings on command.
  • My wife teaches a lot in the Middle East through a ministry we started over a decade ago.
  • I heard "The Basics Of Life" from 4Him on a radio station in '94 while driving to host a "shock jock" morning show on a classic rock radio station.  One month later, I was doing mornings on a Christian music radio station.  Ha! That's our God for ya'!

Now you know who I am, share your family photo with us by tagging the K-LOVE Morning Show Facebook Page

LOL Sarah. I found a site that mentioned him leaving for Klove. Now if they just post the other person's clues so we can figure that one out. Smile

Not sure who, but I don't think Darrell is right. The bio doesn't match what I found using Google for Mike Kankelfritz.

I HOPE it's Jon and Sherry!  Miss them!

Michele United States
Me too.  I would love to have John and Sherry back.  They are the voice of morning radio for me.

Here is the answer for 1 of 2...the question now is who is his "best friend?"  Maybe it's you Jane! Smile

Might have to copy/paste link into your browser to get it to work.

I wish it was Jon and Sherry, too, but the one glitch in that, from the clues given, is they only have 1 daughter, and it says the "Mystery host(s) have two children.
11/1/2011 5:43:21 PM
Kathy United States
It's not Mike Kankelfritz

FOUND THIS AT http://www.hisair.net/news1.htm  sorry, guess it is Mike.

KSBJ/Houston morning co-host Mike Kankelfritz has announced he is leaving KSBJ. After five years as the Morning Show co-host, Mike's last day will be Wed 10/19 and he will be headed to mornings with KLOVE in Indianapolis. KSBJ has begun a national search for a new Morning Co-Host for Coppelia. More details coming soon. Click here to hear the audio of  Kankelfritz announcement on KSBJ. EMF officials say details regarding the morning show will be released next week. (10/10)

Eric is from Chicago, I'm pretty sure. So I dont think it's him... He works for Air1 now. I think it's Mike.

Dang I hoped for JD and Amy.  I heard JD was moving and was hoping to Indiana.  I love JD and am really gonna miss him

My guess is that Mike Kankelfritz is mystery host #2. Still don't have a guess on #1.

I really doubt, as much as I miss them too, that it is Jon and Sherry.  I am sure that whom ever it is will be a great addition to the KLOVE family. Having said that, Jon and Sherry were a huge part of anyone's life that listened to KLOVE.  We miss them and would love an update, I'm just saying Smile

Cris United States
I, too, would love to see Jon & Sherry come back!  But I agree, the bio info doesn't match them.  In an interview, they said they got married in 1989, not 1990.

I am confident that whoever it is, I will love them, just like I loved Jon & Sherry, just like I loved Lisa & Eric!

I would love to have an update on Jon & Sherry & little Lexie.  Who I'm sure is no longer so little.

The bearded guy with the glasses is Craig West. He just left a Christian morning show in Tulsa to join KLOVE. He's great.

Oh it is Craig! Oh how the KXOJ family misses you but I am thrilled to know you will be on KLOVE! You are an amazing person and the KLOVE family is beyond blessed to have you working with them!

Hey Craig, got a big kick out of you and Mike; both of you and Amy are well suited.
I noticed in your travel map with Mike, you took a rather circuitous route. Oh well, you get to see more corn fields that way. May I pass along info from a this ol'seasoned traveler, always know exactly where you are lost. But I always knew which way gravity flowed.
