ENTERCOM Talk KMBZ-A-F/KANSAS CITY has filled the gap left by CHRIS MERRILL's recent move to CLEAR CHANNEL Talk KOGO-A-F/SAN DIEGO by hiring ENTERCOM Talk WSKY/GAINESVILLE host JONATHAN WEIR for 9-11a (CT), starting APRIL 30th.
"KMBZ is a heritage station in KANSAS CITY, I knew and listened to KMBZ before any other News/Talk station, even before those in ST. LOUIS," said WEIR (whose name is spelled WIER at WSKY). "I couldn't be happier to be joining such a landmark station in the MIDWEST. I'm inspired and so thankful to everyone at KMBZ for giving me this incredible opportunity ... I look forward to the challenge of living up to the incredible standards set by KMBZ and the chance to be close to my family again is a great bonus."
"JON's enthusiasm and unique approach to his audience instantly drew me in as a listener first," said PD JACK LANDRETH. "His ability to weave his life experiences into the fabric of the show is a real quality that endears him to his listeners."
