Following the announcement that "THE OPIE AND ANTHONY SHOW" would replace DAVID LEE ROTH at CBS RADIO Alternative WBCN/BOSTON, the station has also announced the addition of the "TOUCHER AND RICH SHOW" for afternoons beginning next month. HARDY will shift for afternoons to nights and MARK HAMILTON will move from nights to overnights.
FRED TOUCHER was most recently morning co-host at SUSQUEHANNA WNNX (99X)/ATLANTA. RICH SHERTENLIEB was producer and on-air personality for syndicated KIDD KRADDICK SHOW. Prior to that SHERTENLIEB and TOUCHER worked together at 99X. They recently joined forces to create the TOUCHER AND RICH SHOW which auditioned on WBCN last month.
Also, CHRIS "CRASH" CLARK will join the TOUCHER AND RICH SHOW for sports reporting and other on-air duties. CLARK was also most recently part of the 99X morning show.
WBCN PD DAVE WELLINGTON said, "The addition of ‘OPIE AND ANTHONY and TOUCHER AND RICH’ solidifies WBCN’s position as one of the pre-eminent rock radio stations in the country. I look forward to working with them for the years to come."
