JILL VITALE is returning to CUMULUS News-Talk WABC-A/NEW YORK as Exec. Producer of CURTIS SLIWA and RON KUBY's noon-3p (ET) show, effective TUESDAY (2/17).
VITALE, who originally joined WABC in 1999, served as producer of SEAN HANNITY's show (given the nickname "Flirty Flipper") for several years and later produced JOHN GAMBLING's show at WABC; she left the station in OCTOBER 2011.
She tells ALL ACCESS that she invited SLIWA and KUBY, who hadn't been in the same room together for five years, to a farewell luncheon she arranged for GAMBLING in DECEMBER when he left crosstown CLEAR CHANNEL Talk WOR-A, and the hosts hit it off again, prompting VITALE and GAMBLING to ask them if they would ever consider re-teaming on the air. The pair was reunited in JANUARY at WABC, and now VITALE will be producing their show.
