CUMULUS MEDIA Classic Hits WLS-F/CHICAGO has named radio veteran JACK DIAMOND as its new morning host, effective MONDAY, NOVEMBER 3rd. DIAMOND previously spent 24 years doing mornings at WRQX/WASHINGTON, D.C., and also worked at KSON/SAN DIEGO, WQXI/94Q ATLANTA, KNBR/SAN FRANCISCO, WRKO/BOSTON, WPRO/PROVIDENCE and KIMN/DENVER, among others.
"JACK’s positivity, fun and endearing qualities match perfectly with our current morning lineup including air talent/meteorologist BRANT MILLER, MARTY JONES with information/traffic updates and producer DAN WOLFE," CUMULUS MEDIA SVP Corporate/Programming JAN JEFFRIES said. "This will be the third radio tour for JACK and me working together, previously in ATLANTA and WASHINGTON, D.C. What seemed like a fun idea to have him sit-in WLS FM mornings for a week this summer turned out to be a great idea. Welcome, JACK DIAMOND to 94-7 WLS!
“As a kid listening to the radio at night, WLS and WABC were the stations that sparked a desire to spend my life doing what those great personalities were doing from so many miles away," DIAMOND said. "Pure magic. Hosting mornings at 94-7 WLS is not only a career dream come true, it brings my career full circle and is truly “going home”. In a city with such great air talent through the years, it’s an honor to join them, past and present in Chicago. Thanks to JOHN DICKEY, MIKE MCVAY, Market Manager DONNA BAKER and the one and only JAN JEFFRIES, CUMULUS SVP/PD of WLS FM for the enthusiastic welcome and great opportunity at such a legendary radio station.”
