One day after the departure of Mark Bashore from the WJIM-AM (1240) morning program, the morning air talent shuffles at two of Citadel's Lansing radio stations, WJIM-AM and WMMQ (94.9).
Deb Hart, best known as Tim Barron's co-host on the WMMQ morning show, takes over as morning show host at WJIM. At least for now, Hart will be paired with rotating co-hosts, including Rob Bennett (formerly of WVIC), Ken Kluge, and WJIM morning sportscaster Tim Nester. This morning's co-host was Mark Addy.
Meanwhile, Joanne Paul, who had originally been paired with Bashore at WJIM, moves to WMMQ, where she will now co-host the morning show with Barron.
This move marks a major change in the makeup of Lansing morning radio, as Barron and Hart have worked together for nearly 15 years. Prior to moving to WMMQ (then WVIC) in early 1997, the two held down the morning fort at Rocker WJXQ.
