A couple will be married on-air during the “Charlie and Ty” show Friday morning on KUBE, 93.3 MHz. The event probably will be at 7:30 AM. This is the second on-air marriage for KUBE.
John Langan and KZOK parted company this month, apparently by “mutual agreement,” Langan was, of course, the irrepressible side of “the Brothers John” morning team. The down to earth side, John Posey, remains KZOK’s morning personality. Phil Strider said Posey will remain in the time slot, but that a new teammate might be added.
The KNBQ morning team, Rick Hansen and Chet Rogers, will broadcast from Mardi Gras, in New Orleans, Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday, 6 AM to 9:30 AM on KNBQ, 97.3 MHz.

Mike Webb, midmorning disc jockey at KVI, has become program director as well, replacing Scott Burton, the off-air program director who revamped KVI into a solid gold format.
Burton is off to “alternate opportunities” back in either Phoenix or Scottsdale, Arizona.
Webb, with previous on-air experience at an oldies station in San Francisco, has modified the KVI music policy. If you tuned to 570 kHz nowadays you are more likely to hear more Beatles, more Elvis, more Ricky Nelson, and even an occasional Northwest rock pioneer group.
Webb also dumped Tim Edwards, morning announcer, in favor of Paul Walker, previously a KVI weekend announcer.
