WGCI-FM imports two new hosts

| No Comments

Loni Swain Photo.JPGUrban contemporary WGCI-FM (107.5) has added two new hosts to its talent lineup effective July 6. Loni Swain will host mid-days from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. weekdays. Originally from New Orleans, Swain most recently hosted "Loni's Love Lounge" on Foxy 95.5 in St. Louis. Consuella Williams will host evenings from 6 p.m. to 10 p.m. weekdays. Williams, a New Orleans native, previously was at WPEG-FM in Charlotte, N.C., where had had hosted "Grindtime" since 2006. WGCI Program Director Kris Kelley said the two new hosts will "bring a unique flair and familiarity to WGCI-FM." Flair maybe. But we're not sure about the familiarity. Neither of the new additions has worked in Chicago, so they both have a lot of learning to do, it would seem.
