The Loop Morning Show

The Loop has been without a morning show for months now as they do a search for their new morning guy (or guys or gal or gals). During February they will be trying people out live on the air. Here's their announcement from the website...

Hey Loopers! Hear personalities try out for the morning shift on The Loop. Starting Monday February 2nd, tune in, turn up and sound off. Listen from 6:00 am to 9:00 am then plan to give feedback here at Just think, you might be the first to hear the next big thing … or the first to say, “ahh, next!”

Each week you’ll hear a new personality trying-out. Listen each weekday morning in February and tell us what you really think. The Loop has been around this long, because Loopers have been telling us what to do since 1977.

It’s a morning radio casting call!

Here’s what we’re asking: listen to 97-9 The Loop every morning through the whole month of February. Each week you’ll hear a new personality vying for the gig. At the end of the week, take a few minutes on to share your opinion. What’s that saying, “if you don’t vote you can’t bitch?” Loopers may not care what others think, but we care what you think. Thanks for participating in this great radio experiment.

First up is Abe Kanan. Abe hosts a show on Sirius XM. Liz Wilde will also be doing a week...according to her Facebook page.

Not sure who the other two will be. Robert Feder speculates it could be Dan McNeil, Richard Roeper, and/or Mancow.

I worked in this shift at this station a couple of times when it was owned by two different companies. It's now owned (or leased) by Cumulus. They are a completely different animal. I have no idea which direction they will go.
