Longtime top rated jocks DR. DOUG and SKIPPY and ENTERCOM Adult Hits KYCH (97.1 CHARLIE)/PORTLAND have gone their seperate ways. The duo will be replaced by "CHARLIE GIRL."
Said VP/GM ERIN HUBERT, "The new morning show will be the return of CHARLIE GIRL, aka SHEL BAILEY SHEL has been a morning host in another market and previously hosted the all request hour every afternoon on CHARLIE up until there were cutbacks. She’s very familiar with this particular brand… she gets its uniqueness; she helped launched it; and she will play more of an 'emcee' role to the music in the mornings. This way, we retain a tangible presence in the mornings but one that is more compatible to the overall feel and presentation of the station. DOUG and SKIPPY are outstanding personalities… I think the world of them, and they did a great job for us with CHARLIE. Ultimately, however, for the growth of this brand into a maturing heritage brand, we felt we needed a morning presentation that fit more closely with the overall sound of the station."
