Bert Weiss To Exits Mornings At WRQX, Marco To Do Mornings For Now
April 28, 2014 at 10:17 AM (PT)
This FRIDAY (5/2) will be the last syndicated BERT SHOW carried on CUMULUS Top 40 WRQX (ALL THE HITS 107.3)/WASHINGTON. He will be replaced, on a temporary basis, by MARCO, currently in afternoon drive.
CUMULUS co-COO JOHN DICKEY told ALL ACCESS, "There is no denying that BERT is a very successful morning show in ATLANTA at Q100 and in DALLAS at KDMX. BERT is one of the fastest growing syndicated morning shows out there going from two to 25 affiliates in a year. We know that not all great syndicated programming works everywhere, and we've seen that countless times with syndication. These are just the speed bumps along the way toward building a new syndicated morning franchise.
"MARCO will take us into a transitional morning show where we introduce music to the daypart again, and at some point in the near future, we'll announce a new morning show for WRQX. We're all excited about these upcoming changes."
