Dick Lamb To Step Down From Norfolk Mornings After 40 Years
Dick Lamb will step down from the morning show at Max Media AC “92.9 The Wave” WVBW Norfolk VA on Friday ending over four decades of hosting that daypart in the market.
Lamb and current Max Media head Gene Loving were ownership partners in launching AC “101.3 2WD” WWDE in 1978 with Lamb taking the reins of the morning show; a position he would retain until January 2005 when Max Media acquired its current Norfolk cluster. As Lamb is a minority partner in the company and has served as Director of Operations since its launch, he sat out a six month non-compete and then debuted in mornings on WVBW in July 2005. Lamb’s Norfolk career dates back to being a Top 40 jock on 1310 WGH in the 1960s.
The 79 year-old Lamb will remain with Max Media and take on additional programming roles in the wake of yesterday’s exit of 94.1 WVSP/97.3 WGH-FM Program Director Mark McKay.
Paul Richardson and Jennifer Roberts will continue to host “The Morning Wave” with Lamb’s exit.
