Eagle 98.1 Baton Rouge Sets New Lineup

Posted: 08 Jan 2017 12:15 PM PST

Following the departure of Walton Johnson to iHeartMedia News/Talk 1150
WJBO, Guaranty Broadcasting Rock Eagle 98.1 WDGL Baton Rouge has announced
its new on-air lineup.

Afternoon show Condon Uncensored with Richard Condon and Anna Betts will
move to mornings to fill the void created by Walton Johnsons exit. They
will be joined by Scott Robb, who previously hosted mornings with Condon at
WDGL. Robb has also worked in mornings at WEZB and WUMX New Orleans, KVIL
Dallas, and as part of the Kidd Kraddick show.

Mike Benson, who works in sales for the cluster, will add midday duties for
the station. Before moving to sales, Benson had a long on-air and
programming career including WANS Greenville and W4 Detroit. Scotty Drake
slides from middays to afternoons, while Dan Day at night and Tony
Lightfoot overnight remain in place.

Guaranty is suing Walton Johnson over their exit from the station for
violating the terms of their contract to carry the show.

Eagle 98.1, The Rock Station, will begin its new weekday lineup on Monday,
January 9th with a commitment to playing MORE ROCK MUSIC than ever before.

Condon Uncensored with Richard Condon and Anna Betts will move to morning
drive and Condon will be reunited with radio veteran Scott Robb. Robb and
Condon were one of the first morning shows on Eagle 98.1 over 20 years ago.
The show will be music intensive program that includes sports updates from
104.5 ESPN’s Jordy Culotta along with traffic reports from Baton Rouge and
Lafayette. The show will air from 5:30 am -10:00 am weekday mornings.

Mike Benson will take over the midday shift from 11am-2pm. Mike Benson has
made Baton Rouge his home for over 12 years. Relocating to Louisiana just
before Katrina, he has been a part of Louisiana culture and Guaranty Media
since 2005. Mike’s radio success includes being a Morning Host in Detroit
where he worked with Howard Stern, Grand Rapids, Lansing, The Jersey Shore,
Kansas City and Greenville, South Carolina. Mike is a guitar player who
lives the lifestyle, loves the music and knows Classic Rock!

Scotty Drake, the elder statesman of rock, will shift back to afternoon
drive for a show entitled “The Drive with the Drake”. This high energy rock
show will again feature the greatest rock n roll of all time along with
Drake’s sidekick, Dan Day and an hourly sports commentary from 104.5 ESPN’s
Matt Moscona. “The Drive with the Drake” can be heard from 2p-7pm weekdays.

Dan Day will continue to host his evening show “Night with Day” from
7pm-Midnight and British import Tony Lightfoot will begin Baton Rouge’s
only local overnight show “The Overnight Invasion” from Midnight to 5:30
