CBS RADIO Top 40 WBBM-FM (B96)/CHICAGO has appointed ERIC TYLER as its new evening personality. TYLER, a 15-year radio vet who most recently was APD/MD/afternoons at KBKS (KISS-FM)/SEATTLE, succeeds JASON CAGE, who is now the morning host at sister Top 40 WZMP (96.5 AMP RADIO)/PHILADELPHIA.
“We are thrilled to welcome ERIC and add another consummate radio professional to B96's on-air lineup,” CBS RADIO/CHICAGO VP/Programming TODD CAVANAH said. “The fact that he has an overwhelming, well-known passion for the market, CBS RADIO/CHICAGO, and our radio station is an added bonus. We can't wait to get him started on B96.”
“I am beyond excited to have the chance to become an integral part of the station I grew up listening to -- the legendary B96 in the great city of CHICAGO," TYLER said. "Thanks to TODD, ERIK and the entire crew for this incredible opportunity.”
