Chicago radio personality and frequent house husband Garry Meier will be getting out of the crib more in the next week – and hoping it leads to a full-time radio job.
Meier has signed on to do the 1 to 4 p.m. shift on WGN-AM next week, in a “test drive”. If the stint is successful, Meier could land the slot permanently – the shift has been vacant since last December since John Williams moved to mornings to replace retiring host Spike O’Dell.
Meier filled in for WIND-AM host Cisco Cotto today.
Chicago radio fans know Meier from his association with former on-air partner Steve Dahl, whom he worked with at various stints at WLUP and WLS in the 1980’s and 1990’s. The duo broke up in 1993 when the relationship decidedly soured. Meier was later paired up with WLS-AM’s Roe Conn, until he exited the station in 2004.
After a few years off, Meier resurfaced at WCKG-FM for a few months in 2007 until the station dumped its talk format.
