CITADEL Talk WLS-A/CHICAGO weekend host TOM ROESER has retired after 17 years at the station, reports TIME OUT CHICAGO's ROBERT FEDER.
Operations Dir. DREW HAYES told FEDER that ROESER, a former QUAKER CO. executive and official in the NIXON administration, who had missed several shows in recent weeks due to illness, asked to be replaced, and added, "TOM has been a part of WLS since the early '90s, and his straightforward, no-nonsense approach really resonated with our listeners. TOM's show was always a great way to end the week -- and start the week -- and he will be missed."
SATURDAY morning host JAKE HARTFORD will fill in during ROESER's 8-9p (CT) SUNDAY slot for now.
