WIBC Announces New Weekday Lineup

More Katz; Hammer and Nigel to Host Afternoon Drive

 

Indianapolis….93.1 WIBC has announced its new weekday lineup, which will launch June 12, 2017.

Last week, 20-year WIBC veteran Greg Garrison announced his retirement from his weekday show effective June 9.

 

“There is no replacing an icon like Greg,” said David Wood, WIBC program director.  “You ask, ‘what is the best way to serve, inform and entertain our growing audience?’ What we arrived at is a lineup that offers familiar personalities with the addition of energetic voices that will continue to engage listeners in spirited conversation and conservative viewpoints.”

 

Emmis VP/Market Manager, Chuck Williams added, “Indianapolis has been listening to Greg Garrison for years.  He has been an incredible radio friend to us all.  We feel fortunate Greg has decided to maintain his connection with our WIBC listeners as he dips his toe into retirement.  Our outstanding line up of talent are all excited to follow Greg’s lead, informing and entertaining our WIBC family of listeners.”

 

The new daytime lineup will be:

6-9a Tony Katz and the Morning News

9-11a Chicks on the Right

11a-1p Tony Katz Today

1-4p The Dana Show

4-7p Hammer & Nigel

 

“The Chicks had expressed interest in an earlier time slot that allowed them to better manage their growing online presence,” Wood explained. “Tony Katz coming back on from 11a-1p will allow us to syndicate his show via Network Indiana and possibly other outlets. And Hammer & Nigel, the newcomers to our daytime lineup, have become popular voices on WIBC, as frequent guest hosts for the Chicks and the nationally syndicated Chad Benson Show. They currently host weeknights from 9-11pm on the station.”

 

Additional news of note

Abdul-Hakim Shabazz has decided to step away from his daily show to spend more time on his expanding website, indypolitics.org and other business interests. He will continue to host a weekend show and be a regular contributor to wibc.com.

The Dana Show, now nationally syndicated, was originally launched as a local show at Emmis’ St. Louis cluster.

Nigel has been on-air in three Emmis markets: Terre Haute (recently sold), Indianapolis and Austin.

Jason Hammer is the former promotions director at WIBC.
