UTICA market veteran BILL KEELER will join TOWNSQUARE MEDIA Talk WIBX-A/UTICA for mornings effective JANUARY 14th, reports NBC affiliate WKTV (TV). The show, "WIBX FIRST NEWS WITH KEELER IN THE MORNING," will air 6-9a (ET) weekdays. KRISTINE BELLINO will anchor news along with KEELER.
“I am so excited about doing mornings on WIBX,” said KEELER. “This is a heritage radio station that’s been around for 87 years and it remains one of the top stations in the market. I can’t wait to get on the air and get started.”
“We are so excited to bring KEELER’s energy to WIBX in the morning,” said VP/GM KAREN CAREY. “The station already leads the way with radio news in the market and I feel the addition of BILL in the morning is going to add a whole new dynamic to the morning commute.”
KEELER has hosted at WSKS-WSKU (KISS FM 97.9-105.5), WRCK (ROCK 107), and WXUR (92.7 THE DRIVE) in the UTICA-ROME market. He most recently has been hosting a restaurant show, "PLATE NIGHT," on NBC affiliate WKTV (TV).
