KDKA Radio said it has named John McIntire as permanent evening host to fill the 8-10 p.m. weekday slot, the station announced today.
"The Flip Side with John McIntire" will follow the IC Light Sports Talk and is described as a "hip, flip trip through the news of the day," a KDKA press release said.
Mr. McIntire, a Kankakee, Ill., native, joined KDKA in June as host of "The Life Lounge" on Saturday night. Carol Lee Espy will take over as host of that segment, the station said.
Mr. McIntire has worked in radio and television in Illinois, North Dakota, Iowa, Florida, Rhode Island and Oklahoma. He also served as governor's press secretary in Rhode Island.
