FEDERATED MEDIA Talk WOWO-A and Sports WKJG-A (ESPN 1380)/FORT WAYNE has inked former CBS RADIO Sports KRLD-A (105.3 THE FAN)/DALLAS morning co-host GREGG HENSON as OM, filling the slot left vacant by the exit of former OM DAN MANDIS to join CLEAR CHANNEL Talk KHOW-A and Talk KKZN-A (AM760)/DENVER as PD. HENSON's programming experience includes stops at WDFN-A and WXYT-A/DETROIT, WPEN-A/PHILADELPHIA, and KVET-A/AUSTIN.
WOWO GM MARK DEPREZ said, "GREGG is a highly regarded programmer as well as a major market on air talent. He has made a conscious decision to transition his career from sports talk to news talk. We are fortunate he chose WOWO to establish himself as one of the next up and coming news talk programmers. Over the course of his career GREGG has been an aggressive promoter. GREGG is also keenly aware of how to chose and present compelling content. GREGG's first order of business will be to hire a News Director. The HENSON family is looking forward to being closer to their native DETROIT. GREGG's first day will be MONDAY, MAY 2nd."
