590 The Fan’s Tim McKernan has announced that the radio station is adding Martin Kilcoyne and Charlie Marlow to its weekday lineup. The duo will debut on Monday February 20th and occupy the 12p-3p CT time slot. Kilcoyne had been working for The Big 550 KTRS but has chosen to return to the radio station he previously enjoyed great success at.
In order to add Kilcoyne and Marlow, 590 has to make other lineup adjustments. The station will eliminate the programs “The Writer’s Block” and “We Are Live” and switch “The Line Change” to air weekdays from 3p-6p CT.
A few members of those shows will remain with the radio station but in new roles. Derrick Goold will become the station’s Cardinal reporter, and Ben Frederickson and Benjamin Hochman will become regular fill-in hosts. Writer’s Block producer Chris Gardner will take over as producer for Martin and Charlie, and We Are Live producer Michael Gaines could move into the station’s sales department.
