|WIBC Indianapolis Announces New Weekday Lineup
|RADIO ONLINE | Tuesday, May 2, 2017 | 6:24pm CT||
WIBC-FM Indianapolis has announced its new weekday lineup, which will launch on June 12. Last week, 20-year WIBC veteran Greg Garrison announced his retirement from his weekday show, effective June 9. The new WIBC daytime lineup will be Tony Katz and the Morning News (6-9am), Chicks on the Right (9-11am) Tony Katz Today (11am-1pm), The Dana Show (1-4pm) and Hammer & Nigel (pictured) from 4-7pm.
"There is no replacing an icon like Greg," said WIBC Program Director David Wood. "You ask, 'what is the best way to serve, inform and entertain our growing audience?' What we arrived at is a lineup that offers familiar personalities with the addition of energetic voices that will continue to engage listeners in spirited conversation and conservative viewpoints."
"The Chicks had expressed interest in an earlier time slot that allowed them to better manage their growing online presence," added Wood. "Tony Katz coming back on from 11am-1pm will allow us to syndicate his show via Network Indiana and possibly other outlets. And Hammer & Nigel, the newcomers to our daytime lineup, have become popular voices on WIBC, as frequent guest hosts for the Chicks and the nationally syndicated Chad Benson Show."
"Indianapolis has been listening to Greg Garrison for years," said Emmis Indianapolis Senior VP Chuck Williams. "He has been an incredible radio friend to us all. We feel fortunate Greg has decided to maintain his connection with our WIBC listeners as he dips his toe into retirement. Our outstanding lineup of talent is excited to follow Greg's lead, informing and entertaining our WIBC family of listeners."
Additionally, Abdul-Hakim Shabazz has decided to step away from his daily show to spend more time on his expanding website, indypolitics.org and other business interests. He will continue to host a weekend show and be a regular contributor to wibc.com. "The Dana Show," now syndicated, was originally launched as a local show at Emmis' St. Louis cluster.
