Chicago audiences get to hear two new voices on flagship station WFMT.
Candice Agree was formerly on the air at WQXR in New York, WETA in Washington DC, Sirius-XM, and WDAV in Davidson NC, and is a well-known off-camera voice on CBS news in the mornings. She’s taking the 3-7 pm slot on WFMT, in place of George Preston, who is the new GM at KCME in Colorado Springs.
Suzanne Nance is is leaving her job as Director of Music, Performance and Cultural Affairs at Maine Public Broadcasting and host of Morning Classical Music. She starts her new gig at WFMT in September. However, her departure from MPBN might leave that station in the lurch for classical music.
The president of the Maine Public Broadcasting Network said Friday the future of classical music on the network’s radio stations is unclear in light of long-term programming plans and the impending departure of popular “Morning Classical” radio host Suzanne Nance.In a telephone interview, MPBN CEO and President Mark Vogelzang said the network recently completed a strategic plan that calls for more news and information programming …Maintaining the presence of classical music on MPBN could mean many things, including moving it from MPBN’s primary stations to a dedicated, 24-hour station of classical music, or streaming classical music on the Internet.
Ruh-roh. Where have we heard that before?
