ROWLAND, MAROTTI TO LAUNCH ‘CHURCH AND STATE’ ON WTIC-AM

The Shad has learned former Connecticut Governor John Rowland and Rev. Will Marotti will take over the afternoon drive time slot on WTIC-AM, NewsTalk 1080.

The new show, “Church and State” will start tomorrow at 3 p.m. and will replace the current news block, “Total News.”

Ironically, afternoon drive at the station was once the stomping grounds of talented, entertaining and left-leaning host Colin McEnroe who is now on WNPR-FM, weekdays at 1 p.m. (Disclosure: The Shad was the permanent guest host for McEnroe when he was on WTIC-AM).
