BREAKING NEWS: WQMX Looking For New AM Drive Co-Host

OMW has confirmed that Rubber City Radio Akron market country station WQMX/94.9 is looking for a new morning co-host, after the voluntary departure of Shannon Alexander.

Well, the initial word came from WQMX's own Morning Show website page:

Special Announcement: It's is with mixed emotions we announce that Shannon Alexander has left her position on the WQMX Morning Show. We are happy that Shannon will get to be at home full time with her boys, but we will miss her presence on the air daily. In the interim, until a new co-host is found, WQMX Program Director Sue Wilson will be joining Scott Wynn in The Morning.

And that WQMX programmer, Sue Wilson, checks in with OMW about the opening.

She’ll be staying home with her two young sons. We will miss her presence both on the air and in the building. We’ll be running ads and conducting an active search after this holiday week is over.

And Sue, who has a full plate as WQMX's PD and various other duties with Rubber City Radio - at last check, she was helping program one of the company's Lansing MI stations - will surely welcome Shannon's replacement...if only so she can get more sleep!
