Dan Caplis joins Peter Boyles to announce he's joining KNUS

This morning Dan Caplis, former KHOW radio host, joined onetime colleague Peter Boyles on KNUS 710 AM, where the popular talk-show host moved this summer after being let go by Clear Channel. And Caplis, who'd called in from Florida, wasn't on-air to chat with Boyles about the surf; he was there to announce that starting Monday, January 6, he'll be hosting a show on KNUS that will follow Boyles on weekdays from 9 to 11 a.m.

Also on Monday, Boyles's show, which is beating the competition, will move up its start to 5 a.m., then continue until 9 a.m.

Caplis, who's been an attorney for thirty years and got into the media through legal commentary, told Boyles he's interested in pursuing "high-impact radio" at KNUS.

Craig Silverman and Dan Caplis.
"It's a blessing and a privilege to have a microphone," he noted. "To speak truth to power."

After doing television gigs and fill-in radio slots, Caplis and attorney Craig Silverman had a popular afternoon show, Caplis & Silverman, on KHOW for eight years. But in June 2012, Clear Channel, which was in the middle of cost-cutting moves, pulled the plug on the lawyers.

But now Caplis, at least, will soon be riding the air waves again -- courtesy Salem Communications, owner of KNUS.

We'll no doubt hear more about the tragedy of Denver's decision to release Tebow and go with Manning.

Dan Caplis was one of the reasons I stopped listening to 630, he supports the police state way too much, and his typical christian hatred for cannabis users makes me want to puke. Nothing like the preach love practice hate attitude.

Um, Denver radio got so much better when this pro-police state jackass and his partner said goodnight for the last time. Reminds me of congressman Peter King. I'll bet you the "cash register building" he comes out in favor of the NSA surveillance. 


Mike Brown for example is so much more entertaining and normal, and libertarian in bent. I cannot believe that the management thinks there is a market for this kind of suckup statist pro-surveillance mentality in today's environment. Aren't we getting enough of that from the current administration?


At least Amy Stevens will have someone to cheer for her. Caplis supported Gail Norton in the last Senate Republican primary over Ken Buck.


Puke.

Let's see how Caplis does.  Hopefully, he is no longer a RINO and learned his lesson and supports the Constitution.  Let's see who he supports for Governor.  That will be telling.

(Sigh)...if only Caplis had stuck to chasing ambulances between 9 and 11AM and left us with our Dennis Miller fix. This guy is little more than a  legend in his own mind.  Bad move, KNUS...

Awww...the attention whore just couldn't stay away from radio. I'm sure he'll continue to spout his "I'm not racist, I have black friends" or his "I'm not homophobic, I have gay friends" BS. Thank goodness it's to a radio station that's already geared towards the idiot population that believes in beck, levin, and hates this country.
