WRQX Drops Bert Show
Just shy of hitting their one year anniversary in the Washington market, Cumulus CHR “All The Hits 107.3” WRQX is dropping the Bert Weiss led syndicated Bert Show at the end of the week.
DCRTV.com reports that the station will shift afternoon host Marco to mornings on an interim basis while searching for a new locally-based replacement. The move comes as new Program Director Rick Gillette begins to make his mark on the station.
WRQX has struggled since replacing Jack Diamond with Bert last May and then shifting from Hot AC to CHR in August. The station registered a 2.1 share in the March 2014 PPMs, well behind Clear Channel’s “Hot 99.5” WIHT’s 7.2.
