Skolnick and Israel Gutierrez have capably handled the afternoon-drive slot on 790 The Ticket for the past week-and-a-half, but station general manager Doug Abernathy said today that he isn’t ready to name them permanent hosts.
“I haven’t witnessed anything that would deter me from putting them in there,” he said. “I’ve been impressed. I’m excited. They have big shoes to fill [with Dan Le Batard’s move to 9 a.m. to 1 p.m.]. You need consistency.”
Besides wanting to see if Skolnick and Gutierrez can sustain the quality of their show, Abernathy cracked about wanting to see “how much money they can make me” in terms of revenue and ratings.
He said he has no timetable for making a decision but doesn’t plan to audition others in the role at this point.
