“Star 104” (WRTS-FM), longtime Morning Co-host Craig Warvel announced to his partner, Jessica Curry, that he was leaving her! He explained that he “got an offer he couldn’t refuse” because his new gig was “Gonna’ let him play ANYTHING”! That statement proved true when he announced that he was packing up his headphones and moving…across the hall! Craig went on to explain that he accepted a position to be the Morning Show Anchor on Connoisseur Media sister station, 94.7 BOB-FM (WXBB-FM), with a Best Of the Best format known by the moniker of “We Play Anything”!
When she heard the news, Jessica Curry, Warvel’s partner for the past thirteen years said; “It has been a pleasure and a privilege to work with Craig and, although he will now be my competitor, he will always remain my dear friend!” On the other hand, BOB-FM Program Director Joe Lang stated: “As we charted the next evolution of BOB, we knew it was time for a strong Live and Local morning show and I couldn’t be more excited to land an Erie Morning Legend to take the helm! I am more than elated to have Craig become a part of the Bob family”.
BOB-FM listeners in Erie are now “Waking Up With Warvel” every Weekday from 5:30am until 10am. When asked what he thought about the news, BOB said “The talk around the office cooler is about to get a whole lot more interesting!”
