July 31, 2006 at 11:43 AM (PT)
It's over for ROVER in CHICAGO, where CBS Talker WCKG (105.9 FREE FM) will drop ROVER's syndicated show, which originated from the station, in favor of OPIE AND ANTHONY's show 6-9a CT starting TUESDAY (8/1). The station is filling the 5-6a hour with STEVE DAHL "best-ofs."
And, O&A spread the virus to SAN FRANCISCO, where KIFR (106.9 FREE FM) adds the show as well, but they won't be replacing ADAM CAROLLA, who will remain in morning drive while O&A take a midday slot 10a-1p PT. The addition gives O&A, produced at CBS' WFNY-F (92.3 FREE FM)/NEW YORK and syndicated by BOB EATMAN, seven of the top 10 markets.
ROVER will continue his show for his other affiliates, including WKRK/DETROIT, KPNT/ST. LOUIS, WAQZ/CINCINNATI, WAZU/COLUMBUS, WMFS/MEMPHIS, WZNE/ROCHESTER, and WPXC/CAPE COD, based out of his former flagship, CBS Alternative WXRK (92.3 K-ROCK)/CLEVELAND.
