Drew Hayes Back for Another Stint as KABC AM 790 Program Director

Chicago media columnist Robert Feder got the jump Monday on today’s big LA radio announcement. Drew Hayes, operations director with that city’s WLS-AM 980, is heading back out west to reunite with Cumulus Media’s Talk Radio KABC 790.

He replaces the recently departed Jack Silver as program director and in so doing slips back into the same set of responsibilities he held when KABC was owned by Walt Disney Co./ABC. From Feder’s report:

“I’m really excited for the next chapter,” Hayes told me. “I appreciate the confidence that Cumulus has shown in me and in what we’ve built at WLS.”

Howard Stern Finally Gets His Radio Hall of Fame Induction

Popeater.com

The Hall is calling for Howard Stern.

Stern, the self-proclaimed King of All Media, is the highlight honoree of the Radio Hall of Fame Class of 2012, according to Time Out Chicago‘s Robert Feder.

Stern, whose annual omission from the Hall housed at the Museum of Broadcast Communications in Chicago, led to trashing the organization on his Sirius XM show.

In 2004, Stern signed a mega, five-year deal to take his ”shock jock” radio from terrestial to the uncensored satellite.

Stern, who grew up in Roosevelt, New York, had a hugely successful, if not controversial time at 66 WNBC.

After a tumultous three years, Stern arrived at WXRK/K Rock in November 1985.  Just three months later, Stern had the coveted mornings at K Rock. In short order, Stern became a syndication star. In 1992, he was the first person to host a number one morning show in New York and Los Angeles simultaneously.

These days, those who don’t get to hear him on Sirius XM, can see Stern as a judge on NBC’s America’s Got Talent.

The Radio Hall of Fame induction ceremony will be held November 10.
