CBS Radio Cleveland classic rocker WNCX/98.5 has just announced its pickup of a former personality at Clear Channel rock/talk WMMS/100.7.

We’ll add the release, in full, as soon as we can get it into text form…

“The addition of the Maxwell Show to the WNCX line up gives us a proven winner to start Cleveland’s workdays,” commented Bill Louis, WNCX – Program Director.

The line-up features the return of host “Maxwell” a native Ohioan who came to Cleveland and launched “The Maxwell Show” in March 2004. With previous stints in Cincinnati, Pittsburgh and Baltimore, Maxwell commonly refers to his career as “The AFC North Tour.”

Joining Maxwell is Stansbury, a Twinsburg native who for the last five years has brought balance to a man who truly needs it. Stansbury credits his minister father for screwing him up just the right amount to make for some serious entertainment.

Rounding out the team is Cleveland native Tiffany Peck aka “Chunk,” whose love of fast food ultimately decided her radio nickname. A hometown girl, Tiffany brings a unique woman’s perspective to the show.

WNCX, WKRK, WQAL and WDOK are owned and operated by CBS RADIO, one of the largest major-market radio operators in the United States. A division of CBS Corporation, CBS RADIO operates 130 radio stations, the majority of which are in the nation’s top 50 markets.
