Earlier this week we lamented the continuing demise of the local night jock and Clear Channel has taken another step in that direction.
Country “Q104.1” WTQR Greensboro, NC morning hosts Tige & Daniel will step down from that show after Friday, July 25 to launch a new national evening program based at 97.9 WSIX Nashville. The show will also be heard initially on WTQR, “B93.9” WKSL Raleigh, “94.9 TNT” WTNT-FM Tallahassee, and “G105.7” WSCG Augusta. The show will replace jockless time slots or hosts voicetracked from other markets on those stations. Bobby Bones will replace Tige & Daniel on WTQR.
Tige Rogers and Daniel Baker joined WTQR in March 2012 from Qantum Communications’ “Gator 107.9” WGTR Myrtle Beach.
We’ve learned that plans are well underway for similar programs for nights for other formats.
