‘Dave, Shelly and Chainsaw' Leaves KFMB

A video posted to Twitter just after midnight Thursday holds the answer for fans.

The popular morning radio show known as "DSC" or "Dave, Shelly and Chainsaw" will be heard om KGB-FM beginning Monday, iHeartMedia announced Friday.

The contract the show with KFMB ended on July 31 and fans were wondering what’s next for ‘Dave, Shelly and Chainsaw’ (DSC).

A video posted to Twitter just after midnight Thursday held the answer for fans. 

The radio show will return to its original home at KGB.

iHeartMedia followed up Friday with the announcement that the DSC show with hosts Dave Rickards, Cookie “Chainsaw” Randolph, Chris Boyer, Nina “Ruth 66” Reeba, Emily Maguire and Sarah Beebe will broadcast weekdays from 6 to 10 a.m. on KGB-FM.

“I’ve always felt that KGB was our home, and nothing beats a happy homecoming,” Rickards said in a station news release.

“It feels amazing to bring DSC back to where it all began – the legendary 101 KGB,” said Chainsaw.

Named after its three main hosts, Rickards, Shelly Dunn, and Chainsaw, DSC got its start in San Diego back in 1990.

DSC aired on KFMB-FM (100.7 FM), which is owned by Tegna Inc., formerly Gannett.

The show’s contract ended July 31, KFMB told NBC 7.

The president and general manager of KFMB, Alberto Mier y Terán, made an announcement about the show on the station’s website on July 20.

"After extensive negotiations and a generous offer to the DSC team, we were unfortunately unable to reach an agreement to keep the show here at KFMB. We wish the DSC the very best with their future pursuits."

Mier y Terán told NBC 7 they were outbid by a competitor and DSC chose to accept that offer and leave KFMB.

This comes after Dunn announced her retirement from DSC on July 13, according to DSC’s Facebook page.

They announced her last day would be July 27, but KFMB took DSC off the air early after its July 20 show when DSC agreed to the other company's deal.

“To all the [DSC] fans, I love your support and passion,” Rickards tweeted on July 23, “But let’s not gang up on KFMB. It’s just business and they’re all good people. Important thing is that my show will be back on the air very soon.”

KGB also announced the Bob and Coe Show will move from mornings to afternoon drive, Clint August will move from afternoon drive to host middays, and Marc Coppola will host nights.
