I think he worked the 10pm-2 am shift then got paired with Darlene
McCarthy for mornings.
When doing  nights, there was a promo in which he was making fun of
the competition on
WBZ for "giving away pens if you answer a question about Glenn Miller"

In 1996 he was fired from WSTE Sacramento for joking about hitting
illegal immigrants with cars and getting a Taco Bell prize for it.

In 1998 the Catholic League took Katz and McCarthy to task for such
things as suggesting brownies be used for Communion hosts.

This Herald article mentions that Katz "sees issues through the eyes
of his three young children, ages 8, 7 and 5...Katz said his
7-year-old daughter has some severe physical and mental-development
disabilities. 'I’m very, very active in advocating for kids like that
and looking out for them', Katz said."
