With the exit of PD/Afternoon host Brandon O’Brien, Sinclair Communications Country “US 106.1” WUSH Poquoson/Norfolk VA has promoted two staffers.
Dave Parker, a member of the station’s airstaff since its launch in 2007, will add Program Director duties and an expanded 1030am-3pm airshift. Until earlier this month Parker also hosted a 10am-12pm talk show on sister News/Talk 790 WNIS. He previously worked as a television weatherman in the Norfolk market.
‘Some Guy Named Allen’ Fabijan will move from nights to afternoons to fill O’Brien’s airshift. He will also remain as Creative Services Director for Sinclair’s Norfolk cluster. The Bobby Bones Show will remain in mornings.
Brandon O’Brien is relocating to Nashville to help manage his family’s real estate properties and some radio work in that market.
Effective immediately the new program director for WUSH US 106.1 will be Dave Parker, who has been on US 106.1 since the day it went live on the air in 2007. Dave has been a member of the Hampton Roads media, including television, radio and print, for 20 years.
Since leaving television news in 2006, he has been a member of the Sinclair Communications family. He has been an active member of the Hampton Roads community as well, with over 400 speaking engagements during his career. He and his wife Joy reside in Virginia Beach and have two daughters currently in college.
Brandon O’Brien, who has been an integral part of US 106.1 since 2008, has resigned to relocate to Nashville, TN to manage family real estate properties. He was instrumental in the success of the radio station from when he started and will continue to be involved in country radio from Nashville.
The new lineup for the station will be:
• The Bobby Bones Show from 6 – 10:30 a.m.
• Dave Parker from 10:30 – 3 p.m., and
• Allen Fabijan from 3 – 7 p.m.
