WHKF Welcomes Miller Back For Mornings
April 10, 2007 at 10:40 AM (PT)
Former night jock MIKE MILLER returns to CLEAR CHANNEL Top 40 WHKF (99.3 KISS-FM)/HARRISBURG for morning drive duties. MILLER, who most recently has been handling afternoons at sister CLEAR CHANNEL Top 40 KKRZ (Z100)/PORTLAND using the airname CHASE, will head up the new "Morning Mess," replacing JASON (BARSKY), KELLY and GAVIN, who are leaving on APRIL 20th for a yet-to-be-announced gig.
GM RON ROY commented, "MIKE has been in touch with us over the last few months informing us of his desire to return “home.” We are delighted that this opportunity has presented itself and we are able to bring MIKE back. If there’s one thing I know, the CENTRAL PENNSYLVANIA radio market has always had - and continues to have - its unfair share of talented people. Usually were the one’s losing our talent to a bigger market. This time, we’re the one’s who are gaining!!!"
BARSKY adds, "I am just really happy for MIKE. When I was hired to launch KISS in 2001, we needed somebody to help out behind the scenes. I hired MIKE a week or two after he graduated from high school and he was a MAJOR part of what made KISS a big success from the begining. Now, I'm leaving, and he's coming in to replace me (and my show). They are keeping it 'in the family' so to speak and I couldn't be more proud of MIKE."
So where will BARSKY and company end up? BARSKY replies, "Did you hear? LARRY BIRKHEAD is the father of ANNA NICOLE's baby!!!" (Yes, that was my way of changing the subject!)
