WLW Shuffle Brings Back Eddie Fingers While Doc Thompson Exits
January 30, 2012 at 3:51 AM (PT)
EDDIE FINGERS is back, DOC THOMPSON is out (while on his honeymoon, no less), and SCOTT SLOAN is moving to middays as CLEAR CHANNEL Talk WLW-A/CINCINNATI shakes up its weekday lineup again.
The moves, effective TODAY (1/30), bring FINGERS, the former longtime "DAWN PATROL" host at sister Rock WEBN who exited WLW in OCTOBER 2010, back to partner once again with former REDS outfielder TRACY JONES for 3-6p (ET), while SLOAN, who took over as JONES' co-host after FINGERS' exit, will move to 9a-noon (ET). THOMPSON, who also hosts afternoons at sister Talk WRVA-A/RICHMOND, is out in the shuffle; he recently got married to CBS affiliate WHIO-TV/DAYTON reporter YUNA LEE, formerly at ABC affiliate WHSV-TV/HARRISONBURG, VA and a news anchor-producer at WRVA.
"We are excited to bring EDDIE FINGERS back to the Tri-state area on 700WLW. EDDIE has great energy and will prove to be a fantastic success as he is reunited with his dynamic co-host, TRACY JONES, for many highly anticipated, topical and entertaining afternoons," said Pres./Market Manager CHUCK FREDRICK. "SCOTT is a longtime on-air personality with an interesting take on news topics that has won him a devoted following, and we look forward to continued success with his new show."
