SYRACUSE -- Country music station B104.7 (WBBS) midday host Amber Taylor has recently picked up some extra time behind the mic, as the host of a new "Sunday Night Showcase" featuring local and unsigned talent.
Morning co-hosts Tom and Becky mentioned the show in a mass e-mail sent out to B104.7 listeners this morning. The show airs Sundays at 9pm.
Local country music performers who are interested in having their music featured on the show can get more details on the station website, www.b1047.net.
About two months ago, Clear Channel's top management handed down companywide orders to increase localism in a variety of ways. In addition to featuring locally-produced music, stations have been asked to increase the number of PSAs they air every day, and to move longform public affairs programming into more prominent timeslots.
