Moving with unusual speed, KVIL/103.7 FM has named a new midday host to replace Sybil Summers, who moved to mornings on April 1 to partner with Mike Kannon on Kannon & Sybil: More Music Mornings.
Speaking of unusual speed, the new guy was part of #TeamTexas on The Amazing Race, CBS’ round-the-world reality-competition show. Tanner Kloven, who grew up in Fort Worth and appeared on last fall’s edition of TAR with Dallas buddy Josh Ahern, is now holding down the 10 a.m.-3 p.m. slot on KVIL (which is a CBS station).
This isn’t the first time that program director Jay Michaels has gone to the reality-TV well for a radio personality: Courtney Kerr, co-host of Leigh Ann and Courtney Kerr Unncorked from 3 to 8 p.m. on KVIL, appeared on Bravo’s Most Eligible Dallas and Courtney Loves Dallas (Kerr may love Dallas, but she grew up in Fort Worth).
In his Amazing Race bio, Kloven, then identified as a pharmaceutical sales rep, said that being from Fort Worth, he’s laid-back — and that the celebrity who most reminds him of himself is Matthew McConaughey. All right, all right, all right.
