Salem Media Group inks KRLA-AM (AM 870 The Answer) morning co-host Brian Whitman to a contract extension to remain co-host of the News/Talk outlet's "The Morning Answer" in Los Angeles from 6-9am. Whitman first joined Salem in April, 2012, after previous stints with KABC and KLSX in Los Angeles and WABC in New York. Earlier this year, he was joined by Jennifer Horn as co-host.

Salem President of Broadcast Dave Santrella said, "Brian has proved himself to be the consummate radio quarterback. He leads the show and the audience from one breaking news story to the next and does so in both an informed and entertaining way."

"Brian first worked for me at WABC in New York, and has proven to be one of the most talented morning hosts in the country," commented Salem Senior VP of Spoken Word Formats Phil Boyce. "For six years now Brian has been the anchor of our morning show in LA, and we call him the glue because he holds everything together so well. His comedic impressions of top newsmakers helps the show stay entertaining even in the middle of breaking news."

"I'm thrilled to sign this new deal with Salem, a unique and special broadcast company," said Whitman. "Our new agreement will keep me on my beloved 'Morning Answer' for years to come. Our show is an ensemble and it wouldn't be the same without my talented co-host and dear friend Jennifer Horn," said Whitman. "I am truly blessed to have such history with KRLA and our great Los Angeles market."
