It’s over and out for longtime Chicago radio stars Doug Stylz and Justin Roman as morning co-hosts at WUSN 99.5-FM.
Friday was their last day on the air at the Entercom country music station. A search is underway for their replacement, according to Jimmy deCastro, senior vice president and market manager of Entercom Chicago.
Stylz (whose real name is Doug Bobrowski) and Roman are lifelong Chicagoans who both started as promotion interns at Entercom Top 40 WBBM 96.3-FM before they were teamed as evening co-hosts in 2004. Two years later they moved up to afternoon drive at B96.
In 2016 they surprised the market and their fans when they shifted to US99, replacing Lisa Dent and Ramblin’ Ray Stevens. But the duo never approached the high ratings they enjoyed at B96.
In the latest Nielsen Audio survey, US99 tied for 18th in mornings with a 2.1 percent audience share. It was the lowest rated of Entercom’s six stations in the market, but it still beat iHeartMedia country WEBG 95.5-FM, which tied for 25th in mornings with a 1.2 share.
