After losing his bid to regain the Mayor's post in PROVIDENCE, BUDDY CIANCI is returning to his afternoon slot at CUMULUS News-Talk WPRO-A-WEAN/PROVIDENCE. CIANCI, running as an independent, was beaten by Democrat JORGE ELORZA in TUESDAY's election; he served six terms as Mayor before his conviction on a racketeering conspiracy charge in 1992.
CIANCI said, "I am thrilled to be coming back, to do what I do best and what I love to do." He left the station on JUNE 25th to run for Mayor, with TARA GRANAHAN filling in in his absence; he returned WEDNESDAY, but is taking the rest of the week off before resuming daily radio duties on MONDAY.
