WNIC inserts Renee Vitale into morning drive

| | Comments (2)



With yesterday's departure of Kevin O'Neill and Lisa Berry from morning drive on soft rock WNIC FM 100.3, the station has tapped market veteran Renee Vitale for 6 - 10 a.m. where she will be reporting on traffic and news live during a music-intensive program that the station hopes can attract listeners looking for less talk in the morning.

I incorrectly reported yesterday that the remainder of WNIC's weekday lineup was voicetracked - that is not the case with Theresa Lucas broadcasting live from 10 a.m. - 3 p.m. and Kristin Burns hosting afternoon drive live from the WNIC studios from 3 - 7 p.m. At 7, the syndicated Delilah program is aired through midnight.



For the first time since I got out of the Air Force in 1981, I am without a radio station. After listening to Dick Purtan every morning for 29 years, my wife suggested I start listening to Kevin O'Neill on WNIC. She had been following him around the dial since the mid-90s. I've enjoyed the five days I've been able to listen to him. He has a great wit and interacts well with those he shares the air with. The only complaint I have is that there was too little time between songs for on-air discussions. I wish him the best of luck and hope to find him again on the Detroit dial.

Kevin and Lisa were the best thing on morning radio in Detroit. A lot of us LIKE talk, like the morning personalities. I have switched to WOMC where they have former WNIC morning personality, Chris Edmonds. I hope both Kevin and Lisa turn up on another station soon.
