WIND Whisks Howell Away From US99.5
Sep. 11, 2006
By Ken Tucker
Windy City radio veteran “Big John” Howell segues from mornings at CBS Radio country WUSN (US 99.5)/Chicago to a similar airshift at crosstown Salem news talk WIND.
According to the Chicago Sun-Times, Howell has signed a three-year deal with Salem.
Joining Howell as co-host will be Cisco Cotto, former news anchor and reporter at ABC Radio news talk WLS. They will replace the syndicated Bill Bennett on Sept. 25.
"It's a big risk, but if I didn't take it, I'd kick myself forever," Howell told the paper.
Until a permanent replacement is named, mornings on US99.5 will be hosted by incumbents Ray Stevens and Lisa Kosty.
Howell has been with WUSN since 1989, except for a short stint at what was then sister oldies station WJMK in 2003Source(s): www.radioandrecords.com
