Glad to see Tony is back on the air. Thought he got a raw deal at his last gig. From this morning's RAMP Newsletter...
Crawford Broadcasting Urban AC WSRB (106.3 Chicago's R&B) announces the hire of market vet Tony Sculfield to do nights, effective June 15. Sculfield (left) is an experienced stand-up comic who is best known for his run across the street on iHeartMedia Urban WGCI, first in middays and later, as host of The Morning Riot until December of 2014, when he was among several staffers released due to a personnel restructuring. Since then he's remained busy hosting local events, performing his stand-up act and making featured appearances on local ABC 7 daytime talk show, Windy City Live. Sculfield joins a staff that includes Tom Joyner in mornings, Sundance in middays and Mike Love in afternoons. He will succeed another Chicago radio fave, Ramonski Luv, who exited last week.
