It’s been QUITE some time since I’ve uttered those six words. This week, it’s a legit question!
After seven months and thirteen days off the air, the “radio drought” ends this Saturday night (6/30/2018) at 6pm. As Robert Feder first reported, I will be back behind the microphone at Chicago’s Big 95-5, #1 for NEW country!
Just to clarify: This is a part-time position. I won’t be on during the week unless someone is on vacation or calls out sick. My regular shifts will be on Saturdays and Sundays. This weekend, it’s 6p-Midnight Saturday and 6p-10p Sunday. I’ll keep you updated on social media if/when those times change.
For those of you who only know me from Chicago radio, you may not realize this is actually a return to country radio. I started that phase of my career in 2004 at 99-9 Kiss Country in Miami and spent the next 6 years having a blast at stations like 98.7 WMZQ in Washington DC and KMLE Country 108 in Phoenix. Country music fans are some of the kindest and most loyal of ALL radio listeners. Are YOU one? If not, give it a shot! You’ll LOVE this station.
I want to thank Program Director Lance Houston, SVP/Programming Tommy Austin, and Region President Matt Scarano for welcoming me into the iHeartMedia family. Also, my sincere appreciation goes to 93.9 Lite-FM Program Director Mick Lee for all his support.
Remember: if you’re not in Chicago, you can listen to Big 95-5 on the iHeartRadio app. Our studio line is 844-955-9550. I sure hope you’ll use it this weekend!
