HUBBARD BROADCASTING Classic Rock WDRV (97.1 THE DRIVE)/CHICAGO afternoon driver BOBBY SKAFISH exits after an 8 year run at the station.
CHICAGOLANDRADIOANDMEDIA.COM reports, "there will be no drawn-out search for SKAFISH's replacement, though. Effective TODAY (6/5), STEVE SEAVER moves to afternoons. SEAVER has been working weekends and fill-ins on WDRV since 2006."
PD CURTISS JOHNSON announced the moves in a memo to staffers, writing, "As we announced in a short staff meeting a few minutes ago, our long-time co-worker and friend BOBBY SKAFISH has left THE DRIVE. BOBBY has been gracing afternoon drive for us these past eight years, and has been an amazing partner, collaborator and communicator in helping shape the sound of THE DRIVE. Please join us in wishing BOBBY all the best in his future endeavors. Beginning immediately, STEVE SEAVER will be holding down afternoon drive duties. SEAVER has been our 'go-to-guy' for the last seven years, and now he will DRIVE us all home from 2-7p."
