One thing I can say about these CHR, Rock and Elroy’s Cluster in Philly stations… the promotions depts send out press releases…
Jonathon Brand meier and The Loop (WLUP 97.9FM) have agreed to a contract extension that will allow Johnny B to continue as the morning show host Monday through Friday, 6am ” 10am. Market Manager/WLUP General Manager, Marv Nyren commented, Å“At a time when most radio stations are eliminating morning show personalities, we believe it is more important than ever to keep a talent like Jonathon Brand meier on The Loop for both the listening audience and the advertising community. Chicago has a rich tradition of great morning show personalities and Johnny has certainly put himself at the top of that list.
Brand meier has received multiple awards, including Radioâ„¢s highest honor; the Marconi Award for Major Market Air Personality of the Year from the National Association of Broadcasters. He is also the recipient of several Billboard Magazine Radio Personality Awards and was named one of Talker Magazineâ„¢s Å“100 Most Important Radio Hosts in America.
Johnny began his Chicago radio career on WLUP and sky-rocketed to radio fame with his unique blend of entertainment and humor, and while many others have come and gone, Chicagoans will continue to wake up with Johnny B every weekday morning.
