PREMIERE RADIO NETWORKS has informed affiliates that MIKE MCCONNELL will exit "THE WEEKEND SHOW" as he moves his daily local show from CLEAR CHANNEL Talk WLW-A/CINCINNATI to TRIBUNE Talk WGN-A/CHICAGO.
MCCONNELL, who starts at WGN AUGUST 9th, will be hosting "THE WEEKEND SHOW" for the next several weeks, then will be replaced by a rotating group of hosts.
While WGN has not announced MCCONNELL's time slot when he joins the station, MCCONNELL told the CINCINNATI ENQUIRER's JOHN KIESEWETTER that he will be hosting the 9a CT show, which is presently hosted by JOHN WILLIAMS. WILLIAMS recently started doing a separate midday show for CBS RADIO Talk WCCO-A/MINNEAPOLIS.
