A housekeeping note: OMW will be mostly be on a hiatus until sometime next week. (Hey, we haven't done one of those for a while! Don't worry, we're fine.)
As usual in most of our time away, we'll continue to track major breaking media news, as possible given our demands outside the blog.
And even if we can't post, we'll try to keep on top of things with our Twitter account...if you're not following us there, just look at our Twitter posts on the left hand side of this blog.
That's where we first posted word of this item:
Rubber City Radio Group Akron market country powerhouse WQMX/94.9 has found its new night personality.
WQMX program director and OMW reader Sue Wilson checks in with your Mighty Blog of Fun:
Amanda Casey will join the WQMX staff to host the on air portion of 7 to midnight on WQMX. Amanda will use her on air and online skills to create an upbeat, interactive, connective show that relates to the audience listening in the evening.
That "online" part isn't there for no reason...it was one of the things mentioned when the station advertised the open position. The station has been looking for a new evening personality after it parted ways with Michael "Ike the Night Guy" Izic a while back.
OMW hears that Casey is former WQMX part-timer, who worked for the station last year until moving out of the area...and now, has returned to both the area and the radio station...
