Six years after he signed off from over-the-air radio, Chicago broadcast legend Steve Dahl is about to make a comeback on WLS AM 890, sources said. An announcement could come this week that Dahl, 59, will join the Cumulus Media news/talk station as afternoon personality, replacing Roe Conn and Richard Roeper from 2 to 6 p.m. Monday though Friday. If all goes as planned, Dahl would start in early November.
Will he do political talk on WLS? If he starts in early November, I suppose, that could mean after the election--so maybe the WLS listeners won't mind if he's not political all the time.
LATE UPDATE: Steve confirms the news to Robert Feder. He will air between Rush Limbaugh and Michael Savage. Roe and Roeper are definitely goners. They've already been removed from the station website.
