CITADEL Talk WLS-A/CHICAGO afternoon duo "ROE and ROEPER" have received a new three-year deal reports TIME OUT CHICAGO's ROBERT FEDER. "Although both hosts had months to go on their current deals, the new agreements announced TUESDAY lock them in through the end of 2014, and solidify their on-air partnership by linking the effective dates of their contracts. Financial terms were not disclosed," notes FEDER.
Said WLS-A Pres./GM MICHAEL DAMSKY, "WLS' in-depth and exclusive analysis of yesterday's BLAGOJEVICH verdict again demonstrated how CHICAGO radio listeners depend on ROE and ROEPER, along with DON WADE and ROMA, to give perspective to major news events. By extending the contracts of ROE CONN and RICHARD ROEPER, we are ensuring that WLS will continue its role as CHICAGO's issue station well into the future."
