Indiana RadioWatch: November 18, 2000
For those curious, this issue should have went out on 4 November, but your editor had a bicycling accident the week before. I'm back, with nothing broken, some bruises, and an expensive ambulance ride...
Maybe WBTU is a turkey bird and the new owners are carving it up? Ryan Martin departs as farm director at Country/WBTU (93.3fm, Kendallville) Replacing Martin is Emmis' AgriAmerica.
Leslie Goodwin departs as GSM at Country/WQHK (105.1fm, Decatur). No replacement has been named yet.
Another change at Rhythmic/WCKZ (102.3fm, Auburn) as the morning show splits up. APD/MD Mike Thomas moves back to nights, Aaron Bone returns to weekends, and Nate Dogg stays in mornings.
Debra Miles joins Country/WBYT (100.7fm, Elkhart) as midday host. Debra used to be morning co-host/news anchor at WNDU-FM (now WNDV). Most recently, she was a news anchor for all of South Bend's Federated Media stations.
CHR/WNOU (93.1fm, Indianapolis) morning guy Marty McKnight resigns, but will stay on until a new morning show arrives.
Ed Weigle is the new production director at Alternative/WEDJ (107.1fm, Danville).
Bob & Tom add KTUX in Shreveport, Louisiana, and KIOC in Beaumont, Texas. They're not on at KQWB in Fargo, North Dakota anymore, though.
Afternoon guy Matt Luecking is the new MD at CHR/WMGI (100.7fm, Terre Haute) Former MD Chad Edwards is now the station's webmaster (along with a midday airshift).
Joining Diane Douglas for mornings at CHR/WSTO (96.1fm, Owensboro, Kentucky) is Jim Shea. Shea arrives from Nashville, Tennessee where he did mornings at WRQQ.
And with that, IRW is off to Indianapolis this Wednesday. If you're in the area and don't mind if we stop by, let us know by Tuesday at Noon and we'll try to work you in. As always, see you in two weeks!
