KBLX blockKBLX-San Francisco has filled that crucial missing piece of its Morning Dream Team show with the addition of comedian and actor Tony Roberts (left) as co-host, plugging in alongside existing wake-up artists Tony Sco and Kimmie Taylor weekdays from 6-10am PT. “I’m incredibly excited for the addition of Tony Roberts to the KBLX Morning Dream Team,” said OM Elroy Smith. “His chemistry with Tony Sco and Kimmie Taylor is natural and translates well across the airwaves. I anticipate big things to come for mornings on KBLX.”
Originally from Detroit, Roberts is known in the business as a “comedians’ comedian” — the comic that other performers love to watch work. His TV career includes appearances on HBO’s Def Comedy Jam, the historic Showtime at the Apollo and BET’s Comic View. Roberts currently has a one-hour comedy special, I’m Different available on Netflix.
Commenting on his new radio gig, Roberts remarked, “I am overwhelmed to be chosen as the new member of the KBLX Morning Dream Team. It’s an honor to be able to work for a legendary radio station like KBLX in the Bay Area. I have a long history with both Tony Sco and Kimmie Taylor and am excited to hit the ground running.” Roberts succeeds fellow actor/comedian Mark Curry, who left at the end of August after a 10-month run.
