From Fort Wayne to Chicago
There's a new afternoon jock in Chicago, and she's making the jump here from Ft. Wayne, Indiana. The RAMP newsletter has the details...
Ms. Brooke Taylor is this week's leading candidate for Leap O' The Week™ honors, as she's been recruited from the APD/midday post at Adams Media Country WBTU (US93.3)/Ft. Wayne, IN and propelled upward into afternoon drive at iHeartMedia Country WEBG (Big 95.5)/Chicago, starting next Monday, October 17. Big 95.5 PD Steve Stewart commented, "Brooke Taylor will bring great energy to the team and will make an authentic connection to the audience. We're so excited to see the impact she will have on the Chicagoland community." Taylor had only been back in Ft. Wayne since July, returning to the market after a two-year stint doing nights for Radio Disney in Los Angeles. She had previously worked for US93.3 and sister WJFX (Hot 107.9) from 2012 until April of 2014, when she joined Radio Disney in Burbank. "Words can't express how excited I am to join the Big 95.5 team," said Taylor.
