I want to reaffirm what I just said: I think the new WTMJ-AM consultant (Langmyer) is going to fire Charlie Sykes and Sykes will move to full time work at Right Wisconsin. I think this has been a long time coming.

[[[ Langmyer worked in on-air roles and other capacities in his hometown of Buffalo, New York at WBEN/WBEN-FM and WJYE-FM and at WJJL-AM in Niagara Falls, NY and at stations in Grove City, PA and Youngstown, OH. He worked in roles at WGR-AM/FM in Buffalo, including airborne traffic pilot and reporter. He also worked on the air in Pittsburgh, PA at WTAE. In 1986, he left Buffalo for Syracuse, NY, where he served as operations director of WSYR and WYYY-FM for six years.
Langmyer moved to KMOX Radio St. Louis, MO in 1992, ultimately becoming VP/General Manager in 2003. He also served as National Vice President of News/Talk Programming for KMOX’s parent company, CBS Radio. Langmyer’s experience also consists of consulting both music and news/talk radio stations, including New York’s WNEW. Radio & Records, named him General Manager of the Year in 2009.
In 2005, he joined Tribune Company as Vice President and General Manager of WGN Radio in Chicago, adding the slogan "The Voice of Chicago." In 2008, he acquired play-by-play rights for the Chicago Blackhawks for the station. The station also serves as the flagship for the Chicago Cubs and Northwestern University Wildcats football and men's basketball broadcasts. Langmyer serves on the Board of Directors of the Chicagoland Chamber of Commerce and the Illinois Broadcasters Association. He serves on the Radio Advertising Bureau/National Association of Broadcasters steering committee, which directs conference programming at the NAB's Annual Radio Show. Langmyer stepped down from his post at WGN in October of 2012. ]]]
