Let's hope he makes some good changes there.. the first one being revamping the morning show.

: CLEAR CHANNEL Country WMAD/MADISON has announced its new morning show of TRACY DIXON and MIKE HELLER. The new team replaces JOHN & TAMMY, who recently started in mornings at LINCOLN FINANCIAL MEDIA Country KSON/SAN DIEGO (NET NEWS 6/8). DIXON has spent the last 12 years on morning at CLEAR CHANNEL Country KMFX (THE FOX)/ROCHESTER, MN and HELLER was already with the MADISON cluster on Sports WTSO-A.

: WMAD OM/PD MIKE FERRIS said, “TRACY and MIKE will usher in a new day on AUGUST 22nd. MIKE HELLER will continue to host his afternoon sports talk show on sister station WTSO 1070 in addition to mornings on STAR COUNTRY.”

: TRACY added, “I am thrilled to be joining the CLEAR CHANNEL team at STAR COUNTRY and want to thank all my friends and co-workers at 102.5 THE FOX for so many great years in ROCHESTER.”

: HELLER said, “TRACY and I both felt an instant chemistry when we auditioned, and we just can’t wait to get started!”

: Along with the new morning team, WMAD promotes evening personality ABBY ZELLMER to MD and hires former CLEAR CHANNEL Country WRIT/MILWAUKEE PM-drive host BRIAN O’NEIL as WMAD middays/Promotions Dir., replacing STEPHANIE PETERS, who is also headed to KSON. Brian’s first day on air is AUGUST 1st.

: Finally, MIKE CONWAY joins as Online Content Director for WMAD and the other five MADISON cluster stations. MIKE will leave his current position as CLEAR CHANNEL MILWAUKEE Dir./Traffic Operation on JULY 29th and will also start his new duties on AUGUST 1st.
