OMW was getting ready to post a "What Hasn't Happened Yet" update for the beginning of the week, when we wondered...who replaced Robin Swoboda on Salem Cleveland CCM WFHM/95.5 "The Fish"'s morning show? You might remember that the former local TV anchor left the station for family reasons...primarily because her husband's new job made it necessary for her to take her kids to school. That's impossible to do when you're, well, co-hosting a morning drive radio show.
It turns out that we missed it, but "The Fish" has tapped Brooke Taylor to co-host in the morning, joining incumbent host Len Howser. Taylor's bio says she grew up in Northeast Ohio, with family from "North Canton to Milan". It says she comes to WFHM from Green Bay, where she was part of a morning show called "Bear and Brooke in the Morning". A quick Google search reveals that it was on a country station called "Y100" (WNCY/100.3 Neenah-Menasha WI) in that market...a program now called "Bear and Charli". A quick check shows that though the WNCY signal is based near Appleton WI, the powerful station shows at the top of both the Appleton and Green Bay ratings books.
It looks like Brooke's been aboard officially at "The Fish" for a couple of weeks or so.
If Brooke has done radio in Northeast Ohio before, the name doesn't ring a bell, and OMW is sure that we'll hear from folks who remember her...if she did work in radio in this area.
