As rumored, mornings will be anchored by WINDY CITY wakeup vets EDDIE and JOBO, with GARY SPEARS and BO REYNOLDS also on the air, among others.
"This is one of the most exciting days in our long history in CHICAGO radio," crowed EDDIE and JOBO. "To be rookies again, starting on a brand new radio station in our hometown is, well who said 'you can’t go home'?" They added, "We knew when we walked out of the building in 2008 we weren't done. We weren't sure where we’d land but we’re excited to have this opportunity to reinvent ourselves. Waking up CHICAGO once again is going to be great."
SVP/Market Mgr. ROD ZIMMERMAN said, "104.3 K-HITS returns WJMK to its roots as a station Chicagoans will remember for playing the Greatest Hits of the '60s, '70s and '80s. As much as the station is about the music, it will be equally about the local community, and the on-air talent who give the station its personality. From launch, listeners will instantly feel a personal connection to K-HITS."
"MONDAY at 1:04p is going to be an exciting time for not only CHICAGO music fans but the great group of on-air personalities that we have assembled," commented PD TODD CAVANAH. "EDDIE, JOBO, GARY and BO are thrilled about being a part of this brand new radio station, and are just as energized to share the airwaves and work together again as a team."
