CLEAR CHANNEL Top 40/Mainstream WKSC (103-5 KISS FM)/CHICAGO's new morning sibling BROTHA FRED gets some nice ink from TIME OUT CHICAGO's ROBERT FEDER.
Some of the highlights:
Q. How’s the show going so far?
A. I am really pleased with our progress. I was incredibly fortunate that a longtime member of my team, DAVID [LIVINGSTON], was able to relocate to CHICAGO as well. ANGI [TAYLOR] is the consummate professional and I simply adore her.
Q. What’s been the toughest part of living and working in CHICAGO for you?
A. I have never lived in a place where there is so much locally-based pride. Chicagoans are very boastful of their city and their fellow residents, and I think it’s fair to say that I have found them to be leery of outsiders.
Q. Whom do you consider your role models in the business?
A. My grandfather was a radio station owner and manager. He is the most likable guy I know and a true expert in relationship building. If I am half the man he is, I am a success.
Professionally, I admire HOWARD STERN. He is the most polarizing, compelling and relatable presenter of our time.
TONY COLES, a longtime friend, mentor, and my boss, and DUSTY BLACK, my first GM in AUSTIN, are just a couple of men I admire and aspire to emulate in many ways.
