CLEAR CHANNEL Talk WLW-A/CINCINNATI has made it official and announced the signing of BILL CUNNINGHAM to a new long-term deal to remain on the station.
CUNNINGHAM, who said YESTERDAY that he had decided to spurn an offer from TRIBUNE Talk WGN-A/CHICAGO to join ex-WLW host MIKE MCCONNELL and will instead remain at "THE BIG ONE," said in the formal press release, "CINCINNATI is my home. The first air I breathed. The first milk I drank was from CINCINNATI. Others may have come as carpet baggers to loot the QUEEN CITY and then move on. WILLIE will remain true.”
“We are extremely pleased that WILLIE will remain part of the 700WLW team for many years to come,” said Pres./Market Manager CHUCK FREDRICK. “THE BIG ONE is one of America's great radio stations because of its personalities and WILLIE and 700WLW are synonymous. Our audience expects the very best -- and 700WLW works relentlessly to exceed their expectations."
