TOM JOYNER will remain on in CHICAGO, writes ROBERT FEDER in THE CHICAGO SUN-TIMES. In signing a multiyear renewal last week for JOYNER's DALLAS-based syndicated morning show, CLEAR CHANNEL silenced talk of changes to Urban AC WVAZ (V103), which has been JOYNER's outlet here since 1996.
The possibility of dropping JOYNER's show came to light after CLEAR CHANNEL replaced "CRAZY" HOWARD MCGEE's morning show on Urban WGCI earlier this year with STEVE HARVEY's NEW YORK-based syndicated morning show.
Among scenarios seriously considered for V103 were hiring DOUG BANKS or rehiring MCGEE.
