1500 posts, Yay! Alright, put away the champagne and let’s get down to business…
WGN-AM and WLS-AM both have new program directors this evening.
WGN hired Kevin Metheny, who previously ran Clear Channel’s cluster of radio stations in Cleveland (including rock outlet WMMS-FM “The Buzzard”), as their new program director. He replaces Bob Shomper, who now moves to the same capacity at WLS-AM, replacing Kipper McGee in the process.
Methany was once PD at WNBC-AM in New York City in the early 1980’s, and the boss of Don Imus and Howard Stern – the latter referring to Metheny as “Pig Virus” (now you tell me if that’s positive or negative…)
WGN is entering a new era today, as John Williams took over the morning drive from now-retired Spike O’Dell.
