January 7, 2014 at 6:53 AM (PT)
HUBBARD BROADCASTING Hot AC WTMX (101.9 THE MIX)/CHICAGO has partnered with RICK O’DELL to simulcast his SMOOTHJAZZCHICAGO.NET starting at Noon TODAY (1/7) on the HD2 signal.
HUBBARD SVP/Programming GREG SOLK commented, “We are thrilled to partner with RICK and his very high-quality programming of SMOOTH JAZZ CHICAGO and look forward to bringing this product to many starved CHICAGO SMOOTH JAZZ fans at 101.9 FM HD2. RICK has proven through the years to be a masterful programmer of Jazz music and he’s beloved by Chicagoans. Welcome aboard!”
O’DELL said, “Twenty-seven years ago, WTMX was WCLR. And WCLR was the station that ushered in the Smooth Jazz era in CHICAGO when it premiered the SUNDAY Lite Brunch seven months before WNUA hit the air in 1987. So, with this affiliation between SMOOTHJAZZCHICAGO.NET and WTMX HD2, Smooth Jazz has come full circle in CHICAGO. I'm grateful to GREG SOLK, JERRY SCHNACKE and the crew at HUBBARD RADIO CHICAGO for the opportunity to create a unique partnership.”
