March 24, 2006 at 2:51 PM (PT)
CLEAR CHANNEL AC WLIT/CHICAGO has obtained the afternoon drive services of sister AC WNIC/DETROIT afternoon host KEVIN O'NEILL. O'NEILL, who will be voicetracking the show from DETROIT, replaces afternoon host DAVE HILTON, who steps down to focus on his Production Dir. duties for the station.
"KEVIN has been atop the ratings in the DETROIT market for over 25 years at AC, Hot AC, and CHR stations. He’s a genuinely wonderful guy, and is honestly one of the hardest-working talents I’ve had the pleasure of working with in my career," said DARREN DAVIS, RVP/Programming for the CHICAGO TRADING ZONE and OM/PD for WLIT. "Radio is a true labor of love for KEVIN, and he will be a great addition to WLIT."
Remarking on DAVE HILTON, DAVIS noted, "DAVE has done a great job holding down the fort in PM drive for many years, and we’ll still hear him doing much of our vacation fill-in work and some weekend shifts."
