Corey B Goes From B97 To B96
CBS Radio CHR “B96” 96.3 WBBM-FM Chicago has hired Corey B for its vacant evening slot.
Corey fills the evening vacancy at WBBM-FM created by Eric Tyler’s quick promotion to afternoons when Stylz & Roman jumped to sister “US 99.5” WUSN for mornings.
CBS RADIO Chicago’s WBBM-FM (B96) today announced the hiring of Corey B. as its new evening (7:00PM-12:00Midnight) on-air personality. Corey succeeds Eric Tyler, who was recently promoted as the afternoon host at B96 after former afternoon on-air personalities, Stylz & Roman, moved over to morning drive at country sister station WUSN-FM (US99) in Chicago. Listeners can tune in to Corey on B96 over-the-air, online at www.b96.com or via the Radio.com app for mobile devices.
“We believe we’ve uncovered a true diamond in the rough with Corey B.,” said Todd Cavanah, CBS RADIO Chicago VP, Programming. “In addition to driving the station over the air at night, Corey’s skill and creativity on social media is off the charts. We can’t wait to introduce him to Chicagoland later this month.”
Corey adds, “Words can’t express just how thrilled I am to be a part of this already amazing team at B96! I’m grateful to Todd Cavanah and [B96 Music Director] Erik Bradley for this incredible opportunity. I can’t wait to rock nights in Chicago…hard work definitely pays off.”
