Pistol Pete Moves Down The Dial

WUBE-FM midday DJ Pistol Pete has moved down the dial to sister country station WYGY-FM (97.3, The Wolf). He's doing the same 9 a.m.-2 p.m. shift. Part-timer Madison Taylor took over Pistol Pete’s 9 a.m.-2 p.m. gig on B105 Monday.

"As you know, Pete has a ton of personality image and will make the Wolf stronger and even better," says Patti Marshall, operations director. Pistol Pete's show was No. 3 in the summer ratings in the 25-54 demographic, and tied for No. 2 (with Q102) in the 18-34 demo. The Wolf midday was ranked No. 14 in 18-34... and not at all in the 25-54 or 12+ rankings. So they must be counting on him....

Taylor has been a B105 part-time/fill-in person for six months. Says Marshall: "She has landed in a perfect spot to showcase her fun and feisty personality. Madison is a working mom with 2 kids and I'm pretty sure she will find her experience on B105 to a bit more fun and less stressful than her most recent job as a 911 operator."

Thank you for the information on Pistol Pete. We are avid listeners of WUBE and members of the B105 Country Club. We just realized on Monday, that Pistol Pete was gone from the lineup. Hopefully, it will be a good corporate move for Bonneville International and 97.3 The Wolf. Honestly, because of WUBE, we don't tune into The Wolf, did not know they existed until now. Had no reason to, we are happy with B105. But, we wish him luck. Maybe, he will return to B105 again. Future will tell. Pistol Pete will be missed on WUBE.

Speaking of WUBE...does anyone know whats up with Marty Thompson? I haven't a peep out of him or seen where he is since his departure..

So, someone who's been in the business 6 months is suddenly qualified to replace Pete? Midday on a major station?

So a Part Timer is doing Mid- Days on B-105. I'm thinking a budget move and she's doing it for an hourly rate.

Corporate made a big mistake. They never should have traded for a competing country station in the same market. I miss 96.5 The Star. That used to be the only station I listened to. Ken & Kitty and Jesse Tack were my favorites. I don't even listen to 97.3 The Wolf since they changed their format. Now I'm forced to listen to B105 and I'm still not impressed. Argh! Why do they have to mess with things????

Madison used to do mornings on 105.9 The Rebel and I believe worked on Mix 94.1 also. I think she does alright, just give her time...
