CUMULUS Classic Hits WLS-F/CHICAGO morning man JACK DIAMOND is moving on. While DIAMOND is headed back to his hometown, WASHINGTON, DC, there was early speculation that he may be rejoining former WLS-F PD and newly-named Top 40 WRQX (DC's 107-3)/WASHINGTON programmer and CUMULUS SVP/Corporate Programming JAN JEFFRIES.
JEFFRIES commented to ALL ACCESS, "No plans for him at WRQX. We have a strong ensemble in morning drive at DC's 107-3, on target for the direction of the station. We wish JACK the best with his future endeavors."
On JACK's FACEBOOK PAGE, he wrote, "Thanks so much to JOHN DICKEY and MIKE McVAY for the opportunity to hit 2 career highlights in the past year; 1) Live and work in CHICAGO. 2) Host Mornings on WLS. I had an absolute blast! What a great city (I'll be back : ) And what an amazing radio station and incredible staff. BRIAN THOMAS is a terrific guy and wonderful programmer. I'm only sorry we didn't have the opportunity to work together."
