WLS PD Retires

According to Robert Feder's column today, WLS PD Peter Bolger is retiring. He gave Dave and I a chance at filling in on his station, so I will always be grateful for that. But this paragraph in Feder's column does explain the situation pretty well...

Programming the once-mighty 50,000-watt powerhouse may have been the pinnacle of Bolger’s career, but he leaves the station in a deeper hole than when he arrived in November 2013. At that time, WLS was in 27th place among adult listeners with a 1.4 percent share. Today it’s tied for 30th with a 0.6 share.
