Conservative talker Jeff Katz joins WFTL

Fort Lauderdale's AM talk station WFTL-850 has added a new local host: veteran conservative firebreather Katz Jeff Katz. Katz, a former Philadelphia cop, has the 3 to 6 p.m. slot formerly occupied by Joyce Kaufmann. (Her show has moved to the noon to 3 p.m. slot.)

Katz comes to South Florida from Charlotte, N.C., where he was fired last year when his ratings slipped. (He was also fired from a station in Sacramento in 1996 for a very different reason: He suggested that drivers who run over illegal immigrants should be awarded sombrero bumper stickers that could be redeemed for a meal at Taco Bell.) But Katz has lots of fans in the industry: Talkers Magazine has several times ranked him as one of the 100 most important talk jocks in America, and Radio & Records readers once voted him one of the five best local hosts in the country.
