Savannah-Hilton Head station BOB 106.9’s hosts of Tim Leary and The Morning Showgram are headed to Seattle. The Georgia crew are leaving WUBB-FM and moving up to a bigger market after establishing themselves as a star act in Savannah. And in comes Hunter and Leslie in the Morning. Hunter is coming from Columbia, SC, where he was the PD and afternoon host on Fox 102.3. Leslie joins the team from Sarasota, FL where she has lived for the past year after spending over 10 years as the morning show host on Lazer 99.3 in Springfield, MA.
“It is a very special time for Tim, Claire, and Karen. They have done such an amazing job in the Savannah and Hilton Head markets that they have created the next opportunity for themselves in one of the top markets in the country. What you hear (or see) is truly who they are as people. Their kindness, generosity, and community interests have really made an impact here”, says Market Manager Aaron Wilborn. “We will be sad to see them go but this has created an opportunity to find even more talented people in our industry and bring something just as special here to the area.”
The Morning Showgram’s last day will Friday April 27 followed by a going away party that evening. Hunter and Leslie in the Morning will make their debut on Monday April 30 at 6 a.m.
