“We are committed to a team concept, a bunch of people.” That’s what WEAE (1250) general manager Mike Thompson told Bob Smizik regarding the replacement of ousted afternoon drive host Mark Madden. It’s likely that the show will have two hosts and a third person as news reporter. The list of possible candidates is sizable although some possibilities probably won’t happen. For instance, Ellis Cannon and Tim Benz have been considered, but both remain under contract with Clear Channel. Although Stan Savaran works at the station part time, his committments at FSN Pittsburgh wouldn’t allow him to be able to do a 3-7P shift.

One name that is drawing some attention is former New England radio host Andy Gresh. Gresh is a local native, but was most recently heard doing a talk show in Providence R.I. He’s also heard nationally on ESPN Radio. He was a guest earlier this week when Chris Mack and Mike Logan were hosting and drew favorable reviews from the listeners.
