CLEAR CHANNEL Country WYYD/LYNCHBURG-ROANOKE air personality BARRY "BEAR" MICHAELS checks in with ALL ACCESS to say "I have resigned my positions with CC ROANOKE/LYNCHBURG. I have my eye on a dream position and if they make the smart decision to hire me, we'll both be happy, the volcano will stop erupting and the universe will be at peace. No pressure ... I'm just saying."
BARRY, a longtime morning host at WYYD, recently moved to afternoons. PD KENNY SHELTON and wife JUDY SHELTON, also the Promo Director at WYYD, have taken over mornings as "SHELTON and SHELTON."
Meanwhile, the new afternoon personality is RIP WOOTEN, who joins from crosstown Country, MEL WHEELER's WSLC.
Back at WSLC PD BRETT SHARP tells ALL ACCESS that they have hired NATHAN “BOOMER” HATCHER to fill RIP’s midday slot. This marks a return to WSLC for BOOMER, who worked there once before. His other stops include CLEAR CHANNEL Country WMAD (THE NEW 96/3 STAR COUNTRY)/MADISON.
