WARO Goes Jockless In The Morning
March 2, 2011 at 8:12 AM (PT)
MERIDIAN Classic Rock WARO/FT. MYERS has dropped the syndicated BOB & TOM morning show, and launched the "Shut Up And Rock!" morning show.
"After extensive listener feedback, we realized what our audience wanted was less talk and more rock," said WARO PD JOHN ROZZ. "In fact, over and over again we heard 'just shut up and rock!' -- thus an appropriate name for our new morning program, Shut Up And Rock!"
"We are excited to be the only station that rocks 24/7," added Dir./Programming RANDY MARSH. "In addition, we now have an entirely local on-air staff."
The new programming lineup will be "Shut Up And Rock!" mornings, followed by three hours of commercial free music 9a-Noon, then the local team of SAMMI during mid-days, MATT MANGUS in the afternoons and ANGEL at night.
