» Illi-Noise: Former Hubbard AC WTMX/Chicago morning co-host Melissa McGurren and former Hubbard Sports WXOS/St. Louis on-air/producer Austin Huff have joined Audacy WUSN/Chicago for mornings as Melissa And Austin. They fill the vacancy created by last year's departure of Katie Bright and Jason Pullman (CAT 6/23/20). Midday personality Drew Walker, who had been covering mornings in the interim, returns to his 9am-12pm shift with regionally syndicated Katie & Company from 12-3pm. “This team will bring energy, positivity, chemistry and a lot of fun to this fresh and dynamic local show to serve Chicago’s Country listeners,” says Regional Pres./MM Rachel Williamson. McGurren spent 25 years with WTMX and previously served as weekend traffic news anchor for WMAQ-TV/Chicago’s NBC5 News. Huff is the Founder/Editor/Writer for comedic sports blog/content company Korked Bats and previously spent time with then-CBS Radio/Los Angeles, Cumulus/Nashville and Cromwell/Nashville.
