CBS Radio Oldies WCBS-FM/New York adds market veteran Patty Steele to the new Shannon in the Morning show featuring Scott Shannon. The appointment is effective on Thursday, March 27. Steele will provide listeners with news and entertainment reports, and is joined by Mr. G providing weather updates, and Joe Nolan with all the latest traffic information for morning commuters. 
           "Patty is not only a fun, compassionate personality, but one of the most credible news people in New York,” said CBS-FM Program Director Jim Ryan. “That combination, along with her chemistry with Scott, makes her the perfect person for this show. We are so excited to bring her to CBS-FM.” 
         Added Steele, “I’m delighted to be reunited with my dear friend Scott Shannon, who has created so many legendary radio stations and morning shows. To help him bring his brand of magic to an iconic station like CBS-FM is an honor. There’s no one better to laugh with, cry with, learn with and yes, fight with than Scott. I can’t wait!”
