SYRACUSE -- Former Ithaca morning show host Mark Vanness excitedly writes CNYRadio.com today: "I got a J-O-B!" Not only did he find a way to get back into radio on a full-time basis; he's making a rather significant market rank jump as well.
A couple of "insiders" at Regent's Utica-Rome cluster tell CNYRadio.com we can expect to see some interesting talent lineup changes, as the cluster fills two vacancies we first told you about last month. The switcheroo includes the return of one personality who left the market a few years ago.
Regent's Utica-Rome cluster is losing two key players. According to job postings on AllAccess.com, longtime Production Director Geoff Storm and Big Frog 104 (WFRG) midday hostess "Meredith McGreen" are both leaving the cluster's River Road studios in Marcy.
Last weekend marked the 20th anniversary of Big Frog 104's "Frogfest Music Festival" at Verona Beach State Park. Instead of going for the usual "air staff plus celebrity" shot, we found a few listeners who went the extra mile to get into the Frog spirit.
