“Are you an entertainer with the chops to share the stage with a proven, polished morning veteran in Milwaukee and hold your ground? Do funny, warm, witty, and edgy describe your on air persona?”
Then WKLH-FM wants you.
To replace Carole Caine, the 29 year morning show co-host whose contract was not renewed.
The former Classic now Hometown Rock station has posted an opening for her job on the website of Milwaukee Radio Group, owned by Saga Communications. (See the ad below).
The new hire could also be backup quarterback to hand the show off to if Luczak ever retires. He joined the station in 1983. Finding anyone to fit naturally into his distinctive rhythms and personality will be difficult.
Caine’s departure was a botched part of a larger “strategic” shift in the station’s programing, said Christian. Expect whoever they hire to reflect that shift.
Caine, who read the stations newscasts and joined the morning show levity, left the station on June 29, after being told her contract, which expired in September, would not be renewed. The station says she rejected the chance to work until then and say goodbye to listeners.
WKLH added Dorene Michaels as the morning show newscaster the following week.
Caine’s departure however caused an outcry among many, often female, listeners.
Later this week the first ratings since Caine’s departure will be released. The station’s ratings have climbed slightly since switching to Hometown Rock.
