Robert Feder: Recent Chicago Radio News

With the departure of Howard Stern, WCKG identifies his replacement. Unlike New York, Chicago did not pick David Lee Roth, but some guy named Rover. In other news, Jonathon Brandmeier returns to The Loop (WLUP-FM) starting on October 31 – assuming his studio is installed in time.

Brandmeier first joined the Loop in 1983 and served as morning man there until 1997. Joining Brandmeier in his new role will be Bruce Wolf, broadcasting remotely from Channel 32 studios, where he is still morning news sports anchor.

Welcome back Johnny.
