2009_02_radio_tower.jpg Phil Rosenthal reported yesterday that Jonathon Brandmeier signed a new one-year contract with WLUP. Part of the contract insures that his current staff will remain intact. Earlier this month Emmis laid off seven Chicago staffers. With rumors that Brandmeier might go to WGN, that station now must find someone for its mid-afternoon slot. Garry Meier appears to be the in the lead.

Roe Conn may be looking for a new female sidekick. According to Lewis Lazare Christina Filiaggi is said to be auditioning for Mancow Muller's syndicated national morning show. It's rumored that former Channel 5 reporter, Amy Jacobson, could be tapped as a replacement. At least on the radio no one will know if she's wearing a bikini.
