UPDATE (5:55 PM 1/17/06): AllAccess confirms this item - first reported here on OMW - this afternoon. They also mention Popovich's other Cleveland radio background, at stations like oldies WMJI/105.7 and even at Q104's CBS Radio sister WDOK/102.1.
We remind OMW readers that Clear Channel hot AC competitor WMVX/106.5 recently got its own overhaul in the programming department, with the ascension of former Columbus programmer Don Hallett to the PD post there.
Original item below...and remember, you read it first here on the Mighty Blog of Fun(tm)...the item below was originally posted at 3:07 this afternoon:
A reliable OMW source passes along this word:
CBS Radio hot AC WQAL/104.1 Cleveland is reportedly making some big changes. Our source tells us that program director Allan Fee is being replaced by a very familiar Cleveland radio name...Dave Popovich, who comes back to Cleveland from a gig programming Denver's KIMN. Popovich had an over 10-year run as program director of competitor 106.5, when the station was known as WLTF "Lite Rock 106 1/2".
The word is that Fee will continue co-hosting Q104's morning show with Rebecca Wilde, possibly until his contract ends later this year.
Developing, as Matt Drudge would say...
