VETERAN CLEVELAND air personality BRIAN FOWLER has joined the CLEAR CHANNEL Country WGAR/CLEVELAND morning show. FOWLER replaces TIM LEARY, who exited last WEDNESDAY (NET NEWS, 5/25).
FOWLER spent 22 years in the CLEVELAND market, mainly as part of the “BRIAN & JOE MORNING SHOW,” at several CLEVELAND stations, including CLEAR CHANNEL Rock WMMS, RADIO ONE Urban WENZ, and CLEAR CHANNEL Adult Hits WMVX.
FOWLER started today (5/31) on WGAR mornings, joining co-host LEE ANN SOMMERS, already in place. “We are delighted to have BRIAN FOWLER join LEE ANN SOMMERS on WGAR’s ‘Morning Drive’,” said CHARLEY CONNOLLY, Program Director for WGAR. “BRIAN is no stranger to the CLEVELAND airwaves and we look forward to bringing his vision, passion and knowledge of NORTHEAST OHIO to the morning show on WGAR.”
“I’m proud to be welcomed back to the CLEVELAND radio airwaves. I was born and raised on CLEVELAND radio, growing up in PARMA and listening to some of the best talent in AMERICA,” said FOWLER. “I am extremely excited to be part of such a legendary Country station. WGAR has some of the most passionate listeners on the radio dial and I look forward to getting to know each and every one of them. I am also excited to be working with another native CLEVELANDER, the lovely and talented LEE ANN SOMMERS."
