Update on WKRQ's Plans

We've been slightly beaten to the punch announcing this, but we know the full scale plans, whereas this Enquirer article only covered the first of our points.

I was in Newport this afternoon and spoke to WUBE-FM 105.1 "B105"/Cincinnati and WYGY-FM 97.3/Ft. Thomas' newly minted Program Director, Grover Collins.

Grover happens to be someone I consider a friend of mine, and I've been listening since my late teenage years to his midday 10 AM-3 PM program on WKRQ-FM 101.9/Cincinnati "Q102"...which comes to an end as of last week.

We now know who replaces him at that post.

The voice that replaces him is none other than the station's evening DJ (and, we might add, Grover's wife and the 9th hottest female DJ in the United States), Holly Morgan. Holly slides into the 10 AM - 3 PM slot on Monday.

One other change won't officially take effect until one week from Monday. The man we only know as "Jon" will replace Holly at the evening post of 7 PM - midnight. (The reason, Collins told us, is that Brian Douglas goes on vacation this week, and Jon is taking his place for the week. That, for this upcoming week, moves frequent fill-in Kim Carson into the 7 PM to midnight shift.)

And Grover tells us this weekend (in fact, he's on as we're writing this) won't be the last we hear of him on "Q102". He'll do some weekend shifts, as the PD job at WUBE and WYGY is strictly behind-the-scenes, and doesn't involve on air work.

So, if you liked Grover's work, keep an ear on "Q102" during weekends. He could pop up anywhere on the station...
