EMMIS Alternative WKQX (Q101)/CHICAGO welcomes back JAMES VAN OSDOL for overnights, effective today (1/9). He replaces SHERMAN, who was elevated to nights. VAN OSDOL was last MD/air personality at now-defunct crosstown ABC Active Rock WZZN (THE ZONE). He started his career at Q101 and has always been a part of CHICAGO's Alternative music scene. Q101 also plans to utilize VAN OSDOL in other special programming features.
EMMIS/CHICAGO VP/Programming MIKE STERN stated, "JAMES is an expert in Alternative music from it’s roots to today and now with Q101 showcasing Everything Alternative, it only makes sense for him to come back to Q101."
"Q101's always been home to me, and the home's been remodeled since I left. The station's never sounded better," said VAN OSDOL. "Q101's had some, um, music issues over the years. That's all in the past now; they've rightfully reclaimed their alternative heritage by playing music that's great and interesting again."
