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.

"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.
