Larry O’Connor commented: “I’m thrilled to return to mornings on WMAL in Washington, where my career began nine years ago. Four years after creating the first live and local afternoon drive program on the Radio Station since 2001, it truly feels like coming home and I can’t wait to be a part of the morning commute for families across the Mid-Atlantic and in the nation’s capital. I appreciate the confidence that Bill Hess and Dave Milner have in me and I am thrilled to work together to continue Cumulus’ great success at this historic Radio Station .”
Vince Coglianese remarked: “I’m beyond thrilled to make the leap to afternoons with the country’s single greatest talk radio audience. After four years of taking the WMAL audience to work, I now have the awesome privilege to bring them home. If we’re going to get America up and running again, we need to obsessively tell the truth about what’s happening in our nation’s capital. I’m grateful to our program director Bill Hess and the whole WMAL team for entrusting me with that very mission.”
