Eddie And JoBo Ousted At B96 Chicago

The Chicago Sun-Times reports B96 morning show hosts Eddie and JoBo were given their walking papers on Friday, with CBS Radio Chicago Market Manager Rod Zimmerman indicating he wanted to take the top 40 station’s morning drive show “in a new direction.” Besides a 2-year absence, the duo have been at the station since 1988.

“Eddie and JoBo had a good run here and really helped define contemporary hit radio in this market for nearly two decades, and we thank them for that,” said Zimmerman. J Niice will fill in during morning drive until replacements are named.
