CBS RADIO Country WUSN/CHICAGO has tapped KIMMIE CARUBA for nights effective MONDAY, AUGUST 29th. CARUBA succeeds JOEL "JAX" LISINSKI, who departed earlier this MONTH (NET NEWS 8/3); she joins from CBS RADIO/PHOENIX, where she served double-duty as Country KMLE night personality and Top 40 KALV midday personality.
"KIMMIE is a born and raised CHICAGOAN that grew up listening to US99," said CBS RADIO VP/Country Programming and WUSN PD JEFF KAPUGI. "She's a very dynamic personality that brings a hot, fresh, and interactive approach to nighttime radio in CHICAGO."
Additionally, longtime WUSN midday host DREW WALKER has re-signed with US99 and will continue in the 10a-3p slot for the station. "This has been my radio home for the last 12 years, and I've never been more excited about our future than today," said WALKER. "I'm grateful to TODD CAVANAH, TIM POHLMAN, and JEFF KAPUGI for this promotion to a role of leadership, while continuing to do what I've always dreamed of since I was nine years old growing up in WEST LAFAYETTE, IN -- being that guy on the radio in CHICAGO that gets you through your day, your 'life escape,' no matter what you're doing."
