December 24, 2014 at 9:47 AM (PT)
SALEM Talk WIND-A (AM 560 THE ANSWER/CHICAGO morning co-host BIG JOHN HOWELL is leaving the station after eight years, ROBERT FEDER reports. Sources said HOWELL turned down a renewal offer from the station, as his contract expires at the end of the year.
Although his last show of the year aired yesterday (12/23), HOWELL may return for a week or two after JANUARY 5th until management finds his replacement. Sources indicate that morning co-host AMY JACOBSON will likely stay with the station.
Rumors have it that HOWELL is talking to other stations in CHICAGO, most notably CUMULUS MEDIA News/Talk WLS-A, so he may not be on the sidelines for long.
