June 25, 2012 at 3:55 AM (PT)
Former TRIBUNE Talk WGN-A/CHICAGO morning host GREG JARRETT has joined crosstown MERLIN MEDIA News WIQI (FM NEWS 101.1) as morning host, reports CHICAGOLAND RADIO AND TV.
The move bumps morning co-anchor ROB HART to middays, and HART's show, according to his blog at the station's website, will be "a talk show. I'll have opinions. You might not like them. You have the green light to call me and tell me I'm full of crap. I insist." But he also adds that regarding the show, labeled "Expanded News Coverage," he is "not making any guarantees that this will be a permanent thing. 'Change' and 'FM NEWS Management' are four words that are often seen in the same sentence."
In addition, the station's evening shift will also become "Expanded News" with JOHN CZAHOR hosting a talk show 10p-midnight weekdays.
