Update: Tom Marker To Remain At WXRT
January 13, 2014 at 8:43 AM (PT)
During the holiday break All ACCESS picked up a story from CHICAGO media reporter ROBERT FEDER that claimed TOM MARKER was exiting WXRT after 33 years (NET NEWS 12/31/2013). The story has now been clarified and MARKER is NOT leaving the station.
However, his role is changing a bit according to CHICAGOLAND RADIO AND MEDIA, which reports MARKER has "shifted from full-time to part-time. He will continue to host his signature program "Blues Breakers" each MONDAY NIGHT. Additionally, he will also work one or two other air shifts each week, as well as being a regular fill-in host at the station."
He returns to the WXRT airwaves TONIGHT (1/13).
MARKER has been working in radio since 1973, working in CHICAGO radio since 1975, and working at WXRT since 1980.
