WXCL Relaunching With John And Pesto
March 9, 2006 at 2:51 PM (PT)
ALL ACCESS told you earlier this week, Country WXCL/PEORIA, IL PD/morning host BJ STONE is exiting to take on the GM position at MILLER MEDIA GROUP's KEWANEE, IL cluster (Hot AC WJRE, Standards WYEC, News/Talk WKEI-A, and News/Talk WGEN-A), effective MARCH 16th.
Now we have learned that WXCL morning show co-host KIMBER BENNETT, middayer SUE PARKER, and afternoon driver DOC WATSON are no longer on the air. JMP BROADCASTING currently holds an LMA on WXCL from AAA BROADCASTING, and OM ROB BROWN told ALL ACCESS that PARKER and WATSON have been shifted back over to the AAA cluster.
While plans are currently in the works for WXCL to relaunch new airstaff shortly, we have already confirmed former CLEAR CHANNEL Country KTOM/MONTEREY morning team JOHN AND PESTO have been tapped for wake-ups. Stay tuned to ALL ACCESS for more details as they become available.
