CHR: WNOU/Indianapolis PD Chris Edge

The South Hadley, Massachusetts native has worked at some of the most respected radio stations in the business. Beginning in Hartford at WKSS, moving on to WDCG in Raleigh and now putting roots down in Indianapolis at WNOU, where he has spent the last two years. Not bad for a guy who never was a radio junkie and “just fell into the business.”  [more]

ROCK: Q&A with WMMR/Philly Morning Hosts Preston & Steve

After a tumultuous end to their successful tenure at then cross-town Modern Rocker WPLY/Y100 and a brief and contested non-compete sitout, Preston Elliot and Steve Morrison crossed the street to Greater Media Mainstream Rocker WMMR, and the rest is truly Philly radio history. Since their arrival, ratings in mornings (18-24 and 25-54) have soared to Stern proportions. We tap into the guys and get up-to-speed on the current state of the show - one that’s been named best local morning show in the country in FMQB’s Year End Leaders Poll the last two years and in two different formats.  [more]
 
RHYTHM CROSSOVER: KDGS/Wichita PD Greg “The Hitman” Williams

Greg "The Hitman" Williams has spent most of his broadcasting career in Wichita where he served as MD at Mainstream Top 40 KKRD for 14 years. But then he was hired by Entercom to be PD of KDGS in May 2000. In less than six months, he beat his old station and KDGS became the No. 1 18-to-34 station in the market while putting the heritage station out of business. The Hitman has since become the target of new competition, but this is one man who enjoys the battle while maintaining an incredible passion for the business.  [more]
