WSHH airstaff flips; Dunlap out

99.7 WSHHDan Dunlap appears to have exited WSHH after nearly 30 years with the station as the entire airstaff flips around. The mornings (5:30-10:00 a.m.) will now be handled by promotions man Chris Shovlin and Cris Winter. Sara Lockard moves to mid-days (10:00 a.m. – 3:00 p.m.) and PD Ron Antill moves to afternoon drive (3:00 -7:00 p.m.). Shovlin most recently handled the morning news for the station as well as former sister station WJAS (1320) where he also handled afternoon drive.

UPDATE: It appears that the program times have changed and this report has been corrected to show the new times.

    Is Dan Dunlap retiring?

      Let me just say that if he is, I don’t think he planned on it

        Hey, Eric! Thanks for the “ink” on my exit from WISH. I feel very fortunate to have been on-the-air all those years at one station. We all know what a rarity that is in radio. I don’t think I know anyone working in the business today who doesn’t have an exit strategy in place. And while I didn’t get to pull the trigger myself, I certainly wasn’t taken by surprise…nor am I ill prepared for the future. I am blessed to run a very successful voice over business doing things like: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-DL0W9AUCuY
        and: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QXIGhHF_d4s
        and locally you’ll still hear me as the voice of Wright Auto and a few others. In answer to the query “Is Dan Dunlap retiring?” In the words of Al Pacino in Scent of a Woman…”Oh, I’m just gettin’ started!” Thanks for listening, Pittsburgh.

      Suzi,

      I’ve known Dan since 1937.

      He’s never been the retiring type.

      And thank goodness he didn’t go with Hoo Haw from Scent of a Woman to sum up his future.

        You’ve known Dan a long time. 😉

          Eric,

          Marconi was still broadcasting from the beach when we met.

    I will miss hearing Dan Dunlap’s voice on WISH. He is and was one of the best disc jockeys in Pittsburgh.
