Since I’ve been out of town for a few weeks this is probably old news for most, but it is a story I continue to follow closely. Our beloved John Webster has left Rock 107 to take on a new morning show on WILK. As this story broke on 3/31, I noticed that all references to the Chip the Beer Guy show had been removed from Rock 107’s website. It’s my understanding that Chip is still involved in some format of negotiations with Rock 107 to continue the show, but my sources are telling me that Rock 107 isn't necessarily actively negotiating. I’m also hearing of the possibility of Chip following John Webster and doing a new show on WILK with new sponsorship, this of course assumes Rock 107 doesn’t own his “name” also. As of last Friday Rock 107 didn’t even run a repeat Chip the Beer Guy show, so who knows what the future will bring. On a final “rumor central” note, I’ve now heard from two different sources that there may now be two competing morning radio beer shows in the works….so stay tuned.
