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 years as the weekday morning business reporter on the number one radio station in San Francisco, KGO. KGO also carried "Moneytalk with host Bob Brinker."
Lynn took an extended leave from KGO last year to "tend to her ailing father. In fact, Jimenez donated one of her kidneys to her father and wrote extensively about it and what it felt like."
Jimenez has been off the air at KGO since Nov. 18, 2012 but she still does the occasional Moneytalk fill-in.
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, 2011 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.
