KIRK MCEWEN is returning to BALTIMORE’s airwaves to host HEARST-ARGYLE Active Rock WIYY (98 ROCK)’s 3-7p show. The move represents a homecoming for MCEWEN, who was the long time co-host of 98 ROCK’s morning show. MCEWEN will also take the lead in hosting 98 ROCK’s RAVENS-related programming.
“It feels like my last name was, From 98 ROCK”, says MCEWEN. “Everywhere I go, people still say, ‘hey, aren’t you KIRK from 98 ROCK?’ I couldn’t be more excited to come back to the station where I got my start! I’ve got a lot of pent up energy and I’m ready to unleash it on BALTIMORE.”
In a related move, veteran 98 ROCK personality AMELIA will move from her afternoon slot to the10a-3p Midday show vacated by the recent retirement of 38 year radio host, SARAH FLEISCHER.
PD RICK STRAUSS commented, “We spoke with candidates from across the country. After searching far and wide, it became obvious that AMELIA’s 14 year history with 98 ROCK and her popularity with our listeners made her the clear choice to take over for SARAH.”
Pres./GM CARY PAHIGIAN added, “98 ROCK has a history of creating a dynamic lineup of personalities that are uniquely BALTIMORE. KIRK joins AMELIA, JUSTIN, SCOTT and SPIEGEL and makes 98 ROCK a true powerhouse of music, fun and football.”
