Longtime NEW ENGLAND broadcaster CLARK SMIDT has taken the reins at his newly acquired Talk WCAP-A/LOWELL, MA and has promptly shored up the station's local programming.
SMIDT took the keys from station co-founder MAURICE COHEN last week after purchasing the station for about $2.6 million and has added a new local morning show, "MERRIMACK MAGAZINE," with former BOSTON HERALD radio reporter DEAN JOHNSON, JACK BALDWIN, and TEDDY PANOS. GEORGE ANTHOS moves from mornings to 8-10p, and more local shows are on the way. The station will serve as the radio home for LOWELL SPINNERS minor league baseball and LOWELL DEVILS minor league hockey.
