Pat Cassidy headed back to WBBM-AM

| No Comments

Pat Cassidy is coming back to all-news WBBM-AM (780) in the morning drive co-anchor job he left in July, 2008. Cassidy's first day back on the job with co-anchor Felicia Middlebrooks will be next Monday, Apr. 19. Cassidy left WBBM nearly two years ago for what he believed at the time would be a new career as a talk show host at news/talk WLS-AM (890), but he never found a slot there that he could comfortably fill. Cassidy and his fellow mid-morning host Mancow Muller were abruptly dropped from WLS in February.

At WBBM, Cassidy will replace John Hultman, a veteran WBBM anchor who came out of retirement to do morning drive after Cassidy's departure for WLS. Hultman will continue to do fill-in work at WBBM from time to time, the station said Monday.
