Fish Swims Over To KEEY

CLEAR CHANNEL Country KEEY/MINNEAPOLIS hires CHRIS "FISH" SHATEK for morning co-host duties. He replaces JOHN HINES, who left the KEEY WAKEUP CREW back in MARCH to join sister station Talk KTLK. FISH comes from clustermate Top 40 KDWB, where he handled nights.
FISH did more than just apply for the job, he lobbied for it. In addition to other things, he stood on TWIN CITIES overpasses with a "Hire FISH" sign, narrowing avoiding arrest. He also showed up at the recent KENNY CHESNEY concert and cruised the parking lot while bellowing "Hire FISH" though a bullhorn and giving away tickets to those that signed his petition. PD GREGG SWEDBERG tells us that FISH is currently attempting to get 10,000 hugs by the end of the summer.
