"New" Morning show on B-96
From this morning's RAMP Newsletter...
The DreX & Nina morning show on Entercom Top 40 WBBM (B96)/Chicago is now minus the "DreX" portion of the equation as host Kevin "DreX" Buchar exits after ten months. His co-hosts Nina Hajian and Gabe Ramirez will remain in place as the station's permanent morning duo, Gabe & Nina. That news was confirmed in a staff memo from VP of Programming Todd Cavanah, which read, "Today was the last day for DreX on the B96 Morning Show. He will remain a friend to many of us and I want to thank him for being a great teammate and true professional in every sense of the word." Cavanah continued, "During the past 10 months, Gabe and Nina have developed not only a friendship off the air but a great deal of chemistry with each other and the audience on air, at our Bashes, their appearances and their social media platforms. We see enormous potential with both of these rising stars to achieve our goals on B96 for mornings. Gabe and Nina will take over mornings immediately and we are confident that their engagement with each other and the listeners will be a huge success."
