Ann Carlini

Post by In the biz » Wed Oct 28, 2020 8:15 pm

It was announced today that Ann Carlini after 30 years at WRIF will join Rock 105 and 95.5. She will be doing mid days. She and her husband have moved up from the Detroit area. This is a major market move by Black Diamond! Also they have purchased stations in the Midland area.

Well, I think Anne was placed on the beach at the end of last year (https://www.allaccess.com/net-news/arch ... lus-wrif-m), so a gig in TC would look fairly good... and be far more stable than major market radio is these days, which is back to slash and burn to make shareholders happy.

In case anybody forgets, Mike Chires was the general sales manager for Greater Media for years. I would imagine he's got a relationship with many of the WRIF, WCSX staff.

So Anne Carlini has now worked at almost all of the same stations and markets as the late Bill Gildenstern/Bill Gibson.


Is THAT where they got the idea for the 486-SX?

Same (x, y, z), different (t)

Your bullet missed my trial balloon.

RTN Price. Not guaranteed. As of 12:30, 157.71 Down 0.22.

Will be a great improvement over their current voice tracked mid day chick (can’t remember her name). MW said she had major market experience but she’s sort of stiff on the air

I believe I said Roxanne had a long tenure doing radio in Green Bay and was respected in that market. She was a big force in the development of Razor 94.7. Green Bay is far from being a major market, though.

I've always been a big fan of Anne Carlini's work. Her much younger and inexpensive replacement on WRIF sounds green and has zero business being behind the mic in middays. Jade Springhart (sp?) barely sounds more talented than the average college radio jock.

You folks up north are lucky to have Ms. Carlini!


Rock 95.5 in Chicago is the worst sounding major market rock station in the history of corporate radio.

I've know Anne since about '82. She's a class act, and a number of her friends are up here.
