CBS Country “US 99” 99.5 WUSN Chicago has named ‘Dougie Stylz’ Bobrowski and Justin Roman as their new morning show. The pair move over from sister CHR “B96” WBBM-FM where they were most recently hosting afternoons.
They will replace Lisa Dent and Ramblin’ Ray Stevens. The latter jumped to Cumulus News/Talk 890 WLS last week leading to Dent’s exit. The station itself is giving itself a fresh coat of paint as it returned to its former “US99” branding dropping the .5 and launching a new “Chicago’s Hottest Country” position statement and logo.
CBS RADIO Chicago and WUSN today announced that Chicago duo Stylz & Roman will make the jump to morning drive as the voices Chicagoland Country fans wake up to Monday – Friday. Beloved for the past 12 years for their hometown pride on CBS Radio’s B96, Dougie Stylz (Doug Bobrowski) and Justin Roman bring a fresh excitement to US99. Their show will debut on US99 (99.5 FM), online at the us99.com and via the radio.com app for mobile devices on Tuesday, September 6.
“Words can’t express how excited we are for this new chapter in not only our careers, but our lives as well,“ said Stylz & Roman. “We’re beyond blessed to be able to move from one legendary station to another…this truly is a dream come true!”
“They’re part owners of a Wrigleyville Country bar, so we knew they could authentically speak the language of the Country music fan” remarked CBS Radio VP Programming Todd Cavanah.
The addition of Stylz & Roman to a re-freshed US99 marks the culmination of months of tweaking designed to better reflect what Chicago Country music fans want in their favorite radio station.
“Today’s Country superstars are putting out hot songs, and we deliver the hottest access to the most in-demand experiences in town,” said Jeff Kapugi, CBS RADIO Vice President, Country Programming and Program Director, WUSN. “Chicagoland listeners want to hear longer stretches of commercial free country songs and we deliver that along with a relevant and entertaining morning show rooted in Chicago.”
“This is a welcome and exciting refresh for this heritage Chicago brand,” said Tim Pohlman, CBS Radio Chicago SVP/Market Manager. “Stylz & Roman are quality guys that work hard, play hard and can’t wait to engage the country music fans of Chicago. This is the perfect next step for these two talented personalities. I am very excited about the future of their show and about US99.”
