Steve Dahl Back on WLS?

This is truly shocking news. Steve has been telling everyone that he had no intention of ever returning to terrestrial radio, but last night Robert Feder dropped this bombshell...

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.
