Mike O’Meara, off the air since CBS radio canned him last summer, is returning to Washington D.C. airways this Wednesday. He’ll be half of a new 105.9 FM The Edge morning show with Kirk McEwen, currently in afternoon drive, but best known as part of the old Kirk, Mark & Lopez show at Baltimore’s 98 Rock. The press release (PDF) quotes O’Meara as saying “For the first time in my career, my favorite music will be on the same station with my favorite personality, me.”
It’ll be good to have O’Meara back on the radio and if it means less time playing the same 4 Led Zeppelin or Pink Floyd songs, that’s a bonus. The Edge is in my presets and likely to get more attention from me in the morning now after I get my traffic reports from WTOP.
O’Meara will continue his daily podcast with Don & Mike Show regulars Buzz Burbank and Robb Spiewak as well. Former partnet Don Geronimo is now heard in Sacramento.
