Report: Conn Close To Renewal At WLS
December 11, 2009 at 5:56 AM (PT)
With speculation in the market about afternoon host ROE CONN's future at CITADEL Talk WLS-A/CHICAGO, VOCALO.ORG's ROBERT FEDER reports that CONN is "close to signing a new deal" to stay with the station. CONN's present contract expires JUNE 1st, and FEDER says that CONN is "expected to sign a two-year renewal any day now," with the "only obstacle to finalizing the deal" being top CITADEL management as they prepare the company's bankruptcy filing.
Published reports have speculated that sagging PPM results would lead to CONN's exit from WLS, but FEDER's report indicates otherwise. CONN recently moved his "THE ROE REPORT" daily feature to UNITED STATIONS RADIO NETWORKS for syndication.
