August 14, 2014 at 3:48 PM (PT)
Former HUBBARD Country WUBE/CINCINNATI morning show “CHRIS CARR & COMPANY” members CHRIS CARR and JEFF "MAVERICK" BOLEN will join CLEAR CHANNEL Country KEEY (K102)/MINNEAPOLIS for similar duties effective TUESDAY, SEPTEMBER 2nd.
The move marks a return to KEEY for CARR, who previously handled afternoons before leaving for WUBE in 2008.
“I’m so excited that CHRIS is coming home to K102,” said CLEAR CHANNEL/MINNEAPOLIS VP/Programming GREGG SWEDBERG. “I think it’s safe to say he and MAVERICK are one of a handful of brilliant Country morning shows and we are so fortunate to have them.”
CARR and on-air partner MAVERICK announced their resignation from WUBE on MONDAY (NET NEWS 8/11).
“When I told my wife that we had an opportunity to move back home to MINNESOTA, I witnessed the brightest smile I have seen from her since our second child was born,” said CARR. “We’re all excited to reconnect with family, friends, lakes, ice skates and the awesome audience of K102! Plus, I get to do it with one of the most talented and genuine people on this planet, MAVERICK – I’m excited for everyone to meet him!”
Current K102 morning teamers MIKE “MUSS” MUSSMAN and DONNA VALENTINE remain with the station, as MUSS moves to afternoons and VALENTINE segues to evenings.
MUSS succeeds JD GREENE, who is now PD at CLEAR CHANNEL Country sister WPGB/PITTSBURGH (NET NEWS 8/12).
Current K102 evening personality ADAM WEST, who had doubled as afternoons on Classic Hits clustermate KQQL will now focus on that show.
SWEDBERG tells ALL ACCESS he is searching for an MD to succeed GREENE. Interested candidates should send him materials here
