ARJUNA BROADCASTING Oldies WXUR (92.7 THE DRIVE)/UTICA-ROME, NY has just flipped to Active Rock and shuffled its lineup, moving longtime UTICA personality BILL KEELER for mornings. KEELER, known for his pranks and shock-jock type antics, will move TODAY (6/26) from his current afternoon slot.
UTICAOD.COM reports "FRANK MCBRIDE, a local DJ absent from the radio scene over the last few years will take over from 3-7p. BILL KEELER Radio Show personality JUSTIN CORTESE will take on the 7p-midnight shift.
KEELER's move bumps CITADEL MEDIA's DON IMUS to sister Sports WNRS (1420 AM, ESPN RADIO) for 6-9a. ESPN's MIKE AND MIKE will air 9-10a. Co-owner MINDY BARSTEIN said, “It’s important to keep DON IMUS on in the market. We’re his oldest affiliate -- since 1994 -- and this move gives us the best of both worlds.”
