Erich "Mancow" Muller, who lost his last full-time Chicago radio job 27 months ago, has agreed to host a weekday talk show for Citadel Broadcasting's WLS-AM 890.
Mike Fowler, WLS-AM's president and general manager, confirmed that Muller will replace Jerry Agar in the 9-to-11 a.m. slot, beginning Monday. For his first week, he will be paired with Pat Cassidy, who joined WLS from WBBM-AM 780 this summer.
"It's going to bring a lot of energy to the station," Fowler said. "It's a younger version of Rush [Limbaugh], with some Roe Conn thrown in."
Muller, who will continue to do a separate syndicated morning program, did not return a call for comment.
