CUMULUS MEDIA announces that it will debut a new weekday on-air line-up at 94.7 WLS-FM, Chicago’s Classic Hits, and Alternative Rock Radio Station 101.1 WKQX-FM, effective May 21st. On-air host Erin Carman will move from PM Drive to Middays on WLS-FM, replacing Greg Brown, who is retiring. Tim Virgin moves from PM Drive on sister Radio Station WKQX-FM to PM Drive on WLS-FM, while Lauren O’Neil moves from Middays on WKQX-FM to PM Drive on WKQX-FM. Concurrently, Jon Manley moves from Nights on WKQX-FM to Middays on WKQX-FM, and The Greg Beharrell Show will debut in Nights on WKQX, airing Monday through Friday at 7:00pm. This marks a return to WKQX-FM for The Greg Beharrell Show, which was previously heard on the Radio Station on Saturday Nights.
Wade Linder, VP/Program Director, WLS-FM, commented: “Congratulations to the legendary Greg Brown on a fantastic career. While I’m sad to see him leave us, I’m excited about what will happen next on 94.7 WLS when the famous Tim Virgin hits the air in the afternoon. Erin Carman slides into Middays with a great lead-in from Dave Fogel and Kim Berk in Mornings.”
Troy Hanson, VP/Program Director, WKQX-FM, noted: “The line-up adjustments made today reflect the strong bench we have not just at WKQX, but at Cumulus Chicago as a whole. We thank Greg for his years of outstanding service and commitment to excellence. We replace one legend with another in the great Tim Virgin. In doing so, we are delighted to move internally with both Lauren and Jon, while welcoming Greg Beharrell back to WKQX. With these great talents, everybody wins – especially the audience.”
