Award-winning on-air host Greg "Eggman" Moore is back on Oklahoma City radio as the new KTOK-AM 1000 afternoon drive host. He made his debut Monday as successor to his former broadcast partner Mark Shannon, who died in May after a long bout with leukemia. Eggman previously worked at a syndicated news network in Memphis.
Tom Travis, director of programming for Clear Channel Radio Oklahoma City, said, "We are thrilled to bring Eggman and his off-the-wall humor back to Oklahoma City. He will bring a fresh perspective to the talk format in Oklahoma City."
Moore said, "I remember well how people drive in rush hour on the Broadway Extension, so I figure some comedy will help lessen the incidents of road rage. After all, it's hard to load your pistol if you're laughing."
Moore made his radio debut at age 16 in Arkansas. After moving to Oklahoma City in 1981, he served as an on-air host at several local radio stations before teaming with Shannon.
Moore has worked at radio stations in Charlotte, N.C., Denver and Memphis.
