Ken Rudulph is the co-host of “Good Day Sacramento.” Ken was born and raised in Sacramento and graduated from Cordova High School (go, Lancers!), then CSUS with a bachelor’s degree in Broadcast Journalism. His first media job out of college was with KMAX 31. After interning for the sports department—under the invaluable tutelage of Grant Napier—he was hired as a news reporter and joined the “Good Day Sacramento” team in its infancy. Ken was also the co-founder and lead singer of Sammy-nominated funk/rock band Mama’s Gravy.

Ken is also a contributor to the Onion News Network and has appeared in more than two dozen films and TV series, including “Bruce Almighty,” “Smokin’ Aces” and “True Blood.”

        that Gregson-Williams never copied iatermal from LWWs soundtrack for Prince Caspian. I have listened to both soundtracks literally scores of times and can say without a doubt that Gregson-Williams directly copied music tracks from the first film. In some places, he remixed or reorchestrated the music. But no, in Prince Caspian, he did indeed copy and paste a lot of stuff where he could have simply developed the themes he wanted to use. And by the way, David Arnold did use a track from the previous films: To Aslans Camp, from LWW. It plays sometime after the destruction of Dark Island, and is in fact credited near the end of the films credits along with the other music. All the other uses of the Heroic Theme or as Arnold incorrectly called it, the Narnia Theme, were different, and well developed in my opinion. If Arnold had used the other themes written by Gregson-Williams, I think this soundtrack would have been amazing, with a lot of theme development. As for the Dawn Treader theme, I agree that it wasnt used enough. Considering the fact that its the Main Theme of this movie, it didnt have the biggest role.

  • Demetrius

    What year did you graduated from Cordova?

  • Matt D

    Welcome Ken. Nice to have you back

  • Maryl

  • John G

    Hey Kenny! Nice to see you back in Sac! I loved working with you at the Days Inn many years ago! You was always a riot! Good luck on Good Day!

      Posted on I dont know about Hillary and Onumnut, Onumnut has too many idoit rinos, like Anal Colin Powell, and several fcniaial advisors, who endorsed Onumnut, that are black smucks who will vote for him again, since he is a Kenyan muslim socialist. Plus I think the muslim will ditch FOOT IN HIS MOUTH Biden, and go with the dyke Hillary. Both are Chicagoians and will make and cut deals to keep going, no matter how stenchy it is. With unemployment climbing another 12,000, especially in the summer months when every able bodied person should be able to get a job on construction, it doesnt bode well as the year progresses. The muslim and democrats stimulas program with hope and change, just will not work. If the dems keep following the marxist and communist plan, there might not be an election, excetive orders again will be in effect.

    Jay Z and Kayne West ?

    Have you seen what the name of the CD is called and look at a couple of the names of the songs. (Not Cool) !!

    • Ken Rudulph

      yeah, that was my bad or mistake, I did not see the website with that language you are referring to prior to giving it out. Sorry. The music is still great, but it is aggressive and obviously not for you, I should not have mentioned that on the air.
