As expected since the station dropped Elvis Duran last month, iHeartMedia CHR “97.3 Now” WRNW Milwaukee is bringing Rahny Taylor back to the market for mornings.
Taylor previously spent a decade at Entercom CHR “103.7 Kiss-FM” WXSS as APD/MD/Morning Co-Host before moving to Sacramento as APD/MD of Educational Media Foundation’s “Air 1” and “K-Love“. The Rahny Taylor Morning Show will debut on Thursday, September 15 and air from 5-10am.

“We’re so excited to welcome Rahny Taylor back home. Rahny had huge success driving people to work for over a decade and we could not be more thrilled to have him waking up Milwaukee on 97-3 NOW each weekday!” said Brett Andrews, Program Director for 97.3 NOW. “I’m so stoked to team back up with Rahny to make great radio for our city.”
Taylor has been part of the Milwaukee community for over 13 years. Previously he served as the Assistant Program Director, Music Director and on-air personality for K-Love and Air1. He has also worked as the Assistant Program Director, Music Director and morning show personality for 103.7 KISS-FM, as well as the Production Director and on-air personality for 101.3 KDWB in Minneapolis, MN.

Original Report 8/29: iHeartMedia CHR “97.3 Now” WRNW Milwaukee is shaking up its on-air lineup.
The Elvis Duran Show is gone from mornings and the station is currently running jockless in mornings. A promotional banner on the station’s website is teasing “He’s Coming Home“. A since deleted post on Christian Radio news site CMBOnline, states that Rahny Taylor submitted his resignation as APD of EMF’s “K-Love” and “Air 1” and afternoon host at the latter to return closer to home. Taylor previously spent a decade at Entercom CHR “103.7 Kiss-FM” WXSS as APD/MD/Morning Co-Host.
Fay Fernandez is now holding down the midday shift from 10am-3pm. Fay is based at sister CHR “Y100” WHYI Miami. Program Director Brett Andrews moves up an hour to air from 3-6pm with “103.5 Kiss-FM” WKSC Chicago afternoon host Brady hosting 6-10pm at WRNW. Aaron Rogers, afternoon host at sister “Z104” WZEE Madison, moves from 9am-12pm to 10pm-1am. Shannen O remains in overnights.
