DOUG BANKS is returning to the station that started it all for him in CHICAGO, reports ROBERT FEDER in THE CHICAGO SUN TIMES. CLEAR CHANNEL Urban WVAZ (V103)/CHICAGO has signed on as the first affiliate of BANKS' new afternoon show, syndicated by ABC RADIO.
The move returns him to the frequency once known as WBMX, where BANKS first signed on as morning host in 1982. It also reunites him with V103 syndicated morning star TOM JOYNER, with whom BANKS worked at CLEAR CHANNEL Urban WGCI.
"DOUG BANKS is one of CHICAGO radio's greatest entertainers, and we are beyond ecstatic about him joining the V103 family," said PD DERRICK BROWN. "We are reuniting 'The Turntable Brothers' with TOM JOYNER in the morning and DOUG BANKS in the afternoon."
Since 1996, BANKS had been hosting a nationally syndicated morning show for ABC RADIO. It ended its run DECEMBER 31st.
