    ............Cumulus Media is finally getting down to business in its search for a new morning personality at WLUP FM 97.9.

    Starting Monday, the classic rock station will begin a series of four weeklong “tryouts,” testing various potential hosts and inviting listeners to register their feedback. The morning slot has been open since last September when The Loop revamped its lineup and parted company with Benjamin Bornstein, who was known on the air as Maxwell.

    Cumulus Media bosses are hoping to generate buzz by keep the names of the hosts under wraps, but the first up is expected to be Abe Kanan, the pioneering Chicago podcaster whose show enjoyed a three-year run on Howard Stern’s Sirius/XM Radio channel. Kanan’s on-air ensemble includes his brother Sam, Ryan Manno and Dan “Bass” Levy.

    On Thursday Kanan tweeted: “Got something Cooooo going on next week with Ryan, Sam, and Bass! Check back Sunday night. I’ll be able to announce it! #Cooooo.”

    Kanan began his career as a 19-year-old morning show intern for Mancow Muller, then at alternative rock WKQX FM 101.1. Coincidentally, Muller is also on the list of radio personalities who are expected to participate in The Loop’s “Morning Radio Casting Call.”

    Muller has been off the air since last October, when his morning show on Fox-owned WPWR-Channel 50 ended its two-year run. “I’ve worked nonstop since 1985,” he said at the time. “I’m taking a break.”..............

    The weaved fraud never promoted Abe's show.
    Obviously Gunky was always fearful of his own employees being successful.

    Remember the time Howard threatened to fuck the skull of Mancow's dead father?

    Did that really happen or was it was just a dream. There's no way that my Wiggy would ever sink to such depths as to rely on humor to attract listeners.

    "He worked for Mancow, Robin. I have always respected Mancow- he's had an amazing career."

    "I think Abe wanted to do other things or something.... or maybe his show wasn't.....how do I know?"

    Holy shit. :facepalm: WLUP was at one time the greatest talk station around. Jonathan Brandmeier, Kevin Matthews, Steve Dahl, Danny Bonaduce, Howard for a bit, etc. etc.

    My dial wouldn't change, ever.

    Abe what's his name and Mancow? Two greater douchbages gave never been spawned.
