As hinted first on ALL ACCESS, CLEAR CHANNEL AC WLIT/CHICAGO makes it official and announces that PREMIERE RADIO's nationally-syndicated "WAKE UP WITH WHOOPI" program will broadcast on the station's morning slot (5a-9a) effective AUGUST 14
"WHOOPI is a world-class entertainer, and she has a long and successful history of making people feel good, said CLEAR CHANNEL/CHICAGO RVPP DARREN DAVIS. "This new radio phase of WHOOPI's career is a natural extension of her awesome talent. She's very excited about joining our team in CHICAGO."
WHOOPI and pals replace THE MELISSA FORMAN MORNING SHOW, which will air through FRIDAY, AUGUST 11. RICK ZURICK will continue as News Dir. on the WAKE UP WITH WHOOPI show.
"MELISSA FORMAN has been hosting mornings on WLIT for five years and we are thankful for her contribution to WLIT's success," said DAVIS.
