John Howell & Mancow

From this morning's RAMP newsletter...

With Windy City radio vet Mancow set to debut in morning drive tomorrow on Cumulus News-Talk WLS-AM/Chicago, current wake-up personality John Howell will move to late afternoons -- The John Howell Show will now air from 5-7pm weekdays, starting tomorrow.

Marv Nyren, VP/Market Manager of Cumulus Chicago, said, "As part of the new lineup at WLS-AM 890, keeping an experienced Chicago talent like John Howell solidifies the lineup and will give our audience a reason to stay tuned throughout the entire day. John has been entertaining Chicagoland for over 30 years and his program will be the perfect way to wrap up the day on your way home."

Howell, a 30-year market vet, said, "I'm very excited about hosting the new afternoon show at WLS-AM 890. I intend to present Chicago with a quick-paced, informative, honest and intelligent summary of the day's biggest stories; an afternoon wrap of the day's biggest events featuring prominent newsmakers, reporters, experts and stars. Of course, our town's most colorful characters will also be welcome. In addition, I'm looking forward to (finally) golfing when the sun's in the east."
