ALL ACCESS has confirmed that CLEAR CHANNEL Talk KTLK-F/MINNEAPOLIS PD STEVE VERSNICK is heading to warmer climes as the new Dir./Information Programming at sister Talk WFLA-A/TAMPA and the company's TAMPA-based traffic hub, succeeding R.C. BAUER, who recently announced his departure at the end of MAY to join GENERATIONS CHRISTIAN CHURCH in TRINITY, FL as Executive Pastor.
VERSNICK said “I am extremely excited to take over the reigns at the legendary 970 WFLA. I can't wait to start working with the lineup of hosts, award winning news team and top notch traffic department”.
OM DOUG HAMAND said, "With the departure of RC BAUER, it was a great challenge to make sure we won’t miss a beat with the ratings success of 970 WFLA. STEVE VERSNICK is a 10-year seasoned programming vet and brings great knowledge to our very important News and Traffic Hub operations. It was imperative to secure the future of News Radio 970 WFLA with a pro and we’ve done that with bringing STEVE’s talent aboard our team of successful programmers at CLEAR CHANNEL/TAMPA BAY."
