Updated 12:50pm — SYRACUSE — Former Syracuse talk show host Gary Nolan isn’t coming back to New York State, as we reported here this morning. While Clear Channel has named Gary Nolan as the new PD for two radio stations in Binghamton, it’s not the same Gary Nolan who previously hosted an afternoon drive talk show on Syracuse’s WXTL from 2009 to 2011.
Our thanks to Tom Mitchell, operations manager for the Syracuse cluster of Cumulus Media radio stations, which include 105.9 The Rebel, which was formerly 105.9 The Big Talker, where “that” Gary Nolan used to work. Mitchell points out that the Gary Nolan moving to Binghamton is a different person. Our apologies for the error and any confusion this may have caused our readers.
The “formerly of Syracuse” Gary Nolan is still hosting 9am to noon at a talk radio station in Columbus, Missouri.
Original Story from 7:55am
SYRACUSE — Gary Nolan, most-recently known in these parts for hosting afternoons at the former 105.9 The Big Talker (WXTL), is headed back to New York State. But you probably won’t be able to hear him on a standard radio. Nolan’s going to be programming two Clear Channel stations in Binghamton, and co-hosting mornings on one of them.
According to today’s edition of Taylor on Radio-Info, Nolan will be PD for “hot AC ‘Star 105.7’ WMRV and AC ‘Mix 103.3’ WMXW.”
When Nolan left Syracuse last April, he said he was headed back to his former station in Missouri, where there were plans to launch a nationally-syndicated talk show. We never heard anything about that syndication deal again. He had been hosting afternoons for WXTL since the station launched in early 2010.
Although Nolan’s new job in Binghamton is outside of the CNYRadio.com coverage area, his new bosses are based in Syracuse — you might remember reading here last October that Clear Channel Syracuse ops manager Rich Lauber and GM Joel Delmonico were assigned to oversee Binghamton as part of a company-wide management reorganization.
