Rogers Radio Hours Moved (September 13, 1986)


South Florida`s competitive AM radio market, which seems to change almost seasonally, was revamped again Friday. The management of WINZ (940 AM) moved Neil Rogers, who had been host of the most popular evening talk show in Miami/ Fort Lauderdale, to 10 a.m.-2 p.m. beginning Sept. 29. His previous, evening shift will be replaced by the syndicated NBC Talknet program, from 7 p.m.-5 a.m.

WINZ fired John Broward, who was heard from 6 to 8 p.m. Mondays through Fridays. Broward immediately jumped to WIOD (610 AM), where he will be a temporary, weekend fill-in host. And at WNWS (790 AM), talk hosts Al Rantel and Steve Kane, whose shows aired Monday through Friday from 9 a.m.-noon and 3 to 6 p.m., respectively, each will lengthen their shifts by an hour. WNWS moved Shirley Peter from afternoons to evenings, 7 to 9 p.m., Monday through Friday. The WNWS changes take effect Monday.
