It's official. After weeks of rumors, officials at The Loop (WLUP 97.9FM), announced Monday that morning show host Jonathon Brandmeier has agreed to a contract extension.
Station managers did not say how long Johnny B re-signed for, or for how much.
Sun-Times media critic Lewis Lazare reported that the contract is believed to only for a year, and that he'll be making much less than the $1.2 million annual salary in his previous contract.
Some radio industry sources say the new figure is closer to $500,000 a year, with extra bonuses if ratings benchmarks are met.
Johnny B's show runs Monday through Friday from 6 am - 10 am.
