Along with new branding of “Chicago’s Classic Hits”, the stations is bringing back two market stalwarts and moving another to a new daypart. WMAQ-TV Chief Meteorologist Brant Miller rejoins the station for his third tour of duty at the station as he joins incumbent Marti Jones in mornings replacing Dave Fogel, who was let go yesterday. Miller had filled the morning slot on the station from 2008 until early 2010 and was most recently heard on Merlin’s “FM News 101.1” WIQI.
Greg Brown shifts from afternoons to middays where he replaces the voicetracked out of New York Scott Shannon. Brown’s move paves the way for the return of Fred Winston in the 2:30 to 6:30 slot. Winston recently rejoined the station for weekend and fill-in shifts. John Records Landecker remains in nights from 6:30pm to 11:00 and Dick Biondi in late nights from 11pm to 2am.
