January 7, 2008 at 5:41 AM (PT)
DOTCOM PLUS Sports WNSP (SPORTS RADIO 105.5)/MOBILE morning host WAYNE GARDNER will join crosstown Adult Hits WAVH (106.5 THE PIRATE) as GM after his six-month noncompete expires, according to the MOBILE PRESS-REGISTER. GARDNER, who will join his new station on JULY 1, tells the paper that he will also likely be on the air with THE PIRATE.
Back at WNSP, former crosstown CLEAR CHANNEL Talk WNTM-A PD/host SCOTT O'BRIEN takes over GARDNER's slot alongside LEE SHIRVANIAN. WAVH is in the process of being sold by BALDWIN BROADCASTING CO. to BIGLER BROADCASTING CO. for $3.6 million and is also waiting out a noncompete for former DOTCOM PLUS AAA WZEW (92ZEW) host SEAN SULLIVAN, who is expected to be named OM at the PIRATE.
