Report: Meier Close To Comeback At WCKG
March 20, 2007 at 5:43 AM (PT)
The buzz about the possible return of GARRY MEIER to CHICAGO's radio dial -- in the same lineup as former partner STEVE DAHL -- is getting louder, with the CHICAGO SUN-TIMES' ROBERT FEDER now reporting that MEIER could be announced as the new late-morning host at CBS Talk WCKG (105.9 FREE FM) as soon as this week.
MEIER, the longtime sidekick to DAHL, broke up the partnership in an acrimonious split in 1993 and later worked alongside ROE CONN for eight years at WLS-A, a partnership that broke up in 2004. An appearance by MEIER with DAHL at an AUGUST remote gave rise to talk that the two could work together again in the future, but the hosts will remain separate in the same lineup at FREE FM. STAN LAWRENCE and TERRY ARMOUR presently handle 9a-1p on the station.
