NextMedia Hot AC “Mix 94.1” WHBC-FM dismissed Shawn Powers as PD/Afternoon Host earlier this week and has replaced him with John Stewart, who spent the last ten years programming at crosstown “Q92” 92.5 WDJQ Alliance. Stewart will hold the Operations Manager/Program Director title at WHBC-FM and sister News/Talk 1480 WHBC as well as host afternoons on 94.1.
But there is more to the story. Former WDJQ morning host Pat Deluca registered B941.com on November 26. Deluca and co-host Charlotte DiFranco left Q92 in a contract dispute last Februrary that ended with a legal settlement after the duo launched a webcaster that station owner Don Peterson deemed was in violation of their non-compete clause.
With that non-compete winding down and their supportive Program Director crossing the street, could a reunion on a revamped “B94.1” be far behind?
