Westwood One announced Thursday that syndicated radio personality Dennis Miller, who is leaving broadcast radio and who recently launched a podcast, “PO’D CAST,” with Adam Carolla, is being replaced with Chicago radio personality Jonathon Brandmeier. The Jonathon Brandmeier Show will air live weekdays, from 10 a.m.-1 p.m. ET. WLS-AM Chicago, KABC-AM Los Angeles, KLIF-AM Dallas, KKAT-AM Salt Lake City, WPRV-AM Providence, and KTBL-AM Albuquerque have already signed up for the show.
Miller commenting on his exit from broadcast radio said, “I’m stepping aside from radio at the moment. It’s been a great run and I’ve had a phenomenal time interacting with my guests and audience. But with so many other commitments right now, it’s hard to maintain a daily talk show. It’s time to pass the torch as I move on to explore other opportunities. I wish Johnny B lots of luck.”
John Dickey, EVP/content and programming for Cumulus, said, “Jonathon is one of the most versatile performers in radio today, and we know audiences will enjoy his lively humor and take on each day’s topics. We’re thrilled to add Johnny B to the Westwood One roster of relevant and relatable Talk programming.”
“This is extremely exciting for all of us at The Jonathon Brandmeier Show.” Brandmeier said. “We look forward to continuing to entertain audiences in Chicago and expanding our reach nationwide. Fasten your seat belts, it’s going to be a wild ride!”
