New night jock for B-96

From this morning's RAMP newsletter...

CBS Radio Top 40 WBBM-FM (B96)/Chicago has filled its night vacancy with the hire Corey B. as its new 7-midnight personality. Corey is an eight-year radio pro who spent the past four years doing nights at Entercom Top 40 WEZB (B97)/New Orleans. Prior to joining B97, Corey worked on-air at WFLZ in his hometown of Tampa, FL. "We believe we've uncovered a true diamond in the rough with Corey B.," said Todd Cavanah, VP of Programming CBS Radio Chicago. "In addition to driving the station over the air at night, Corey's skill and creativity on social media is off the charts. We can't wait to introduce him to Chicagoland later this month." Corey succeeds Eric Tyler, who was recently upped to afternoons.

Note to the youngsters out ther youngsters out there. Corey is young, and has only been in the biz for eight years, but he's already hit the bigtime in Chicago. Read the quote from the man who hired him. It was his social media expertise that put him over the top.
