We are extremely excited to have BILL GAMBLE return to his native CHICAGO to move both successful stations to even more advantageous positions going forward."

GAMBLE is equally enthusiastic about his return to CHICAGO radio. "I am thrilled to be returning home to CHICAGO and to be with CBS RADIO. US99.5 is AMERICA's premier Country station and FRESH 105.9 is one the fastest growing stations in CHICAGO. I'm looking forward to getting started and working with DAVE ROBBINS and the talented group of professionals at both stations."
