As ALL ACCESS first hinted earlier this week (NET NEWS 12/6), DOUG MCINTYRE will be returning to mornings at CUMULUS Talk KABC-A/LOS ANGELES, this time paired with news anchor TERRI-RAE ELMER, formerly the longtime afternoon anchor at crosstown CLEAR CHANNEL Talk KFI-A. The new show, "MCINTYRE IN THE MORNING," replaces PETER TILDEN's morning show on KABC, effective JANUARY 3rd.
MCINTYRE has been hosting the CUMULUS MEDIA NETWORKS syndicated "RED EYE RADIO," on which the syndicator is replacing him with "MIDNIGHT RADIO NETWORK" hosts GARY MCNAMARA and ERIC HARLEY. The syndicated version of "RED EYE RADIO" launched in early 2010; MCINTYRE hosted a local version for KABC until moving to mornings in 2004, leaving KABC in 2009 before launching the syndicated show. He also writes a column for MEDIANEWS' LOS ANGELES DAILY NEWS.
“I’m excited to return to the morning drive with leading radio station, KABC,” said MCINTYRE. “I look forward to keeping my audience informed and entertained as they wake up with me each morning.”
"Having DOUG return to morning drive on KABC gives our listeners a dynamic and credible show to start their days. And having veteran TERRI-RAE join the KABC team and morning drive is a huge advantage to the show,” said President and Market Manager MARKO RADLOVIC. "With the addition of SCOTT REIFF, 'The Skylord,' handling traffic reporting in Jetcopter 790, we feel we are on our way to even greater success."
