CUMULUS News-Talk WPRO-A-WEAN/PROVIDENCE is moving DAN YORKE back from middays to afternoons on MAY 2nd to fill the slot left vacant by the death of longtime afternoon host and former PROVIDENCE Mayor BUDDY CIANCI.
MATT ALLEN will move from evenings to noon-3p to fill YORKE's present slot. CIANCI's producer TARA GRANAHAN, who has been filling in for afternoons, will take over ALLEN's 6-9p shift.
VP/Market Manager JOHN SUTHERLAND said, “These are well deserved opportunities for our local team. Keeping the heritage of our News Talk programming live and local on WPRO in Southern NEW ENGLAND will continue to be a vital part of our success in the future.“
YORKE said, “Notwithstanding and respecting the loss of an iconic BUDDY CIANCI, it feels great to be back in the saddle where I spent nine of my 16 years here hosting afternoon drive. I appreciate the confidence the company continues to show in me and I look forward to revisiting our loyal listeners at a later time of day and growing the profits of our incredible sponsors.”
