Former NEXTMEDIA/DIGITY News-Talk WHBC-A/CANTON, OH Sports Dir. and afternoon host SAM BORQUIN has moved up the road to join RUBBER CITY RADIO GROUP News-Talk WAKR-A/AKRON for 2-5p weekdays, beginning NOVEMBER 17th.
BORQUIN, who recently moved from afternoons to mornings on WHBC-A and was replaced in afternoons by KENNY RODA, said, “I'm looking forward to starting a new chapter in radio with a wonderful radio family at the AKRON RADIO CENTER. This is a great way to remain connected with old friends, make new friends and remain a part of the greater AKRON-CANTON community…. This is a great opportunity for me and my family. I'm a northeast OHIO lifer."
President/GM THOM MANDEL said, "Having SAM become available is very serendipitous for us. We think he is smart and talented. He really understands how to communicate with a radio audience. We like that he is committed to our AKRON-CANTON area and NORTHEAST OHIO.
"For 75 years, WAKR has been AKRON’s broadcast leader. We believe deeply in providing local programs of the highest caliber. SAM’s background of service in the shadow of the PRO FOOTBALL HALL OF FAME fits in perfectly with our mission. We're very fortunate to be able to bring his talent and passion to 1590 WAKR."
