Former CLEAR CHANNEL Sports KFAN-A/MINNEAPOLIS host CHAD HARTMAN is the latest addition to the rapidly revamping CBS RADIO Talk WCCO-A/MINNEAPOLIS lineup. HARTMAN, who has been filling in at WCCO, most notably for afternoon host MICHELE TAFOYA, will host 9a-noon CT starting MONDAY (5/17). Incumbent 9a-noon co-host JOHN HINES is moving to 8-10p, replacing "SPORTS TONIGHT WITH STEVE THOMSON AND ERIC NELSON." HINES' co-host SUSIE JONES will move to anchoring news throughout the schedule.
"WCCO's lengthy list of legendary broadcasters is familiar to anyone who has listened to 830 over the years," said HARTMAN, whose father, MINNEAPOLIS STAR-TRIBUNE columnist SID HARTMAN has been a longtime commentator for WCCO. "Starting MONDAY, I am truly humbled at the chance to work with so many talented individuals on and off the air."
"CHAD as a talk show host is refreshing, intelligent, informative, engaging and has a unique ability to offer his insight and views," said SVP/Market Manager MICK ANSELMO. "If you are wondering, this apple fell far from the tree."
The weekly "GOOD MORNING MINNESOTA" with Governor TIM PAWLENTY will continue to air FRIDAYS 9-10a CT.
