West Michigan: Newsmakers July 18 - 23




Grand Rapids Press:

The alarm will go off a lot earlier on Monday morning for Dave Jagger and Geri Jarvis. The husband-and-wife on-air team takes the airwaves as the inaugural morning show of Citadel's WHTS-FM (105.3 Hot FM) after sitting out a three-month noncompete agreement. Their last day at former station WLHT-FM (95.7) was April 21. The team woke up West Michigan listeners for almost 20 years, making it the region's longest-running morning show... Radio's Jagger, Jarvis return to airwaves (Sun 7/23)

One needs a score card to keep up with all the broadcast changes in West Michigan. Last week, WKLQ-FM (107.3) said goodbye to half of its morning team, Jim Davis. This week, the other half -- Justice -- was reassigned to another position in the company to make room Wednesday for a new morning team. Syndicated morning personalities Gregg "Opie" Hughes and Anthony Cumia from CBS Radio and XM Satellite Radio have cut a deal with Citadel Broadcasting to beam their show into eight new markets... Opie and Anthony Show added to KLQ morning drive (Sun 7/23)


There's more changes in the local radio scene, as one station gets a new leader, and another gets a new morning show. The syndicated morning team Opie & Anthony joined the line-up at WKLQ (107.3) Wednesday, the 20th terrestrial station to add the duo. They're also available on XM Satellite Radio, a unique arrangement with the first three hours broadcast both over-the-air and on satellite, with an additional two hours available only on XM. Opie & Anthony replace Justice & Jim as the morning team at KLQ... Big changes at two area radio stations (Wed 7/19)
