More on Marc Amazon
Former sports talk host Marc Amazon, who subbed for Tim Lewis on WCKY-AM (1530 HOMER) Thursday morning, says he's been back in town since December... and off the air for more than a year.
Amazon, a 1991 Sycamore High School graduate who grew up in Montgomery, moved to Mason with his wife, Jennifer, and son, from Greensboro, N.C. For the past year, he has been selling syndicated radio shows for Dial-Global, which distributes the '80s music "Backtrax" show 7-9 a.m. Sundays on WVMX-FM ( MIX94.1) and "The Big Time with Whitney Allen" 7 p.m.-midnight Monday-Saturday on country WYGY-FM (WOLF97.3). When he realized he could do the sales job from anywhere, he and Jennifer moved back here.
Amazon was afternoon drive on Clear Channel's 1360 AM from 1998-2000. He lost his gig when Clear Channel hired Lance McAlister and the "Two Angry Guys" from WBOB-AM in late 2000. Amazon moved in 2001 to
He was asked by Clear Channel's Dave Armbruster late last week to sub Thursday morning for Lewis, who worked the holiday for WLW-AM news (his other part-time job). Amazon says he would consider doing more fill-in work here.
"It was fun. If asked, I'd love to talk about it with them," he says. "(But) it was cool to be on the air again, if they never call me again."
My guess is that someone will call again... From 1530? 700? SupertalkFM96.5? The Buzz?
