January 7, 2008 at 2:56 PM (PT)
As rumored for weeks in CINCINNATI, longtime CLEAR CHANNEL Rock WEBN morning personality EDDIE FINGERS and former REDS player and sister Talk WLW weekend personality TRACY JONES will be the replacement for retired legend GARY BURBANK on WLW 3-6p weekdays starting TUESDAY (1/8).
WLW Director of AM Operations DARRYL PARKS said, “Having two radio stars such as TRACY and EDDIE come to 700WLW is a huge win for us. In a market such as CINCINNATI that enjoys its known personalities, having two that have established themselves already is a huge win for us. One of the reasons 700WLW has been so successful over the years is the longevity of its stars. On TUESDAY we start a new course toward the future.”
FINGERS said, “I sort of look at this like a bad LIFETIME cable movie. The husband goes through a divorce and gets remarried and the kids hate the new mom. But, soon they fall in love with her.”
JONES added, “Coming up to the Reds in 1988, we used to listen to GARY BURBANK each day in the REDS Clubhouse. This is an incredible honor. But, I do have to add, what are they thinking? "
