Blair Garner to leave After MidNite at the end of this month
Top country stars to take over the host's chair during August until Premiere names new host
All Access reports this afternoon that Blair Garner, the longtime host of After MidNite, will step down at the end of July.
Garner recently began hosting Cumulus' NASH-FM morning show.
Until a new host is named, Premiere Radio Networks, which syndicates the show, will have country stars Carrie Underwood, Jason Aldean, Luke Bryan, Jake Owen, and Lady Antebellum's Charles Kelley and Dave Haywood each host for a week during August.
“Premiere has had a successful relationship with Blair Garner for many years and we wish him all the best with his new program,” said the company's EVP/Music Programming, Jennifer Leimgruber. “We look forward to announcing a new host in the near future. In the meantime, we’re excited to welcome the biggest stars in Country music as they put their stamp on After MidNite and help us celebrate this special milestone.”
After MidNite can be heard in the Tri-State on two stations:
- WDDD (107.3 FM), Johnston City, Ill.
- WRAY-FM (98.1 FM), Princeton, Ind.
