Lynn Jimenez was named as the permanent guest host of the nationally syndicated radio show "MoneyTalk with Bob Brinker" back the fall of 2009. At that time, Lynn celebrated 20 yeas as the weekday morning business reporter on the number one radio station in San Francisco, KGO. KGO also carried "Moneytalk with host Bob Brinker."
KGO is no longer the ratings leader in the Bay Area. That position currently belongs to KCBS "All News 740AM & 106.9FM." In an attempt to catch up with KNBR or even regain their number one rating slot, KGO dropped several shows including those of Bob Brinker and Dr. Bill Wattenburg.
In December of 2011, KGO dropped moneytalk for poor ratings KGO Drops Moneytalk with Bob Brinker. On December 7, the owners of 50 kilowatt KGO decided to add Moneytalk to their 5 kilowatt (less powerful) station, KSFO. It appears they kept Lynn on as the permanent guest host.
For as long time, Bill (William G.) Flanagan (Bill Flanagan Fan Club) was the regular substitute for Bob Brinker. Bill wrote a very good book called "Dirty Rotten CEOs" where he accurately described how CEOs were (and are) "Fleecing America." Bill died last year and Bob Brinker paid tribute to him during his February 5, 2012 broadcast.
Some have confused Bill (William G.) Flanagan the guest host with one of Bob's regular third hour guests "Dr. Bill" Wattenburg (website) who was also fired from KGO (story) the same time Brinker's show was dropped.
