Where Are They Now? Former Country/WQHK (105.1fm, Decatur) morning man Scott Miller is now doing mornings at WVLK in Lexington, Kentucky.


One note from the "radio with pictures" side, as The Tribune Company announced it will purchase WTTV (Channel 4, Bloomington) and its sister WTTK (Channel 29, Kokomo) from Sinclair for $125 million. The Indianapolis Star's Marc Allan points out that this sale will create a duopoly in Indy, as Tribune also owns FOX affiliate WXIN (Channel 59, Indianapolis).


Afternoon guy C.J. Miller slides to mornings at Country/WKKG (101.5fm, Columbus). He replaces Mike Patrick, who departed in February.
