August 1, 2013 at 3:23 PM (PT)
After close to 40 years behind the microphone, CUMULUS MEDIA AC WEBE/BRIDGEPORT, CT morning man STORM N NORMAN has announced that he has decided to hang up the headphones. His last show will be FRIDAY (AUGUST 3rd).
Filling STORM N NORMAN's very big shoes is ROBBY BRIDGES who returns to the station after leaving in 2011 to join sister AC WFAS/WINCHESTER, NY for PD duties, and weekends/swing at sister Hot AC WPLJ/NEW YORK. BRIDGES experience also includes stints in the PROVIDENCE, BOSTON, and PHILADELPHIA markets and he could also be heard on CUMULUS MEDIA NETWORK's "TRUE OLDIES CHANNEL."
WEBE 108 OM DANNY LYONS commented "In the 30 years I’ve worked with NORM, it’s amazing, everywhere you go with him he meets people who seem to be old friends or say they went to high school with him in NORWALK! His family at WEBE loves him just the same, and while we will miss him in the halls and on our air we are happy to see him enjoy the next chapter of his life."
ROBBY BRIDGES added, "It just feels great to come home and join the WEBE 108 world class team once again. I'm very excited to work closely with our OM DANNY LYONS and to do big things for our listeners on air, online and all over WEBE-Land! We are going to have some fun each morning; and to stand beside DANNY as only the third PD in WEBE's 30 year history of ratings and revenue success is an incredible honor. I want to also thank our VP/Market Mgr. ANN MCMANUS, our COO JOHN DICKEY, and SVP/Programming MIKE MCVAY for their vote of confidence."
