Afternoon drive host Ty Bentli leaving KISS-FM

July 20, 2010

BY LEWIS LAZARE Media & Marketing Columnist
Ty Bentli, the popular afternoon drive host at Clear Channel Radio Chicago?s top 40-formatted WKSC-FM (103.5), has accepted a new job with Clear Channel Radio Los Angeles, according to sources familiar with developments. A formal announcement is expected Wednesday.

Bentli, who arrived at KISS-FM in October, 2006, will stay at the station until his replacement is found. WKSC will conduct a nationwide search for Bentli?s successor.

Bentli?s exit comes as WKSC-FM has just completed its first full quarter as the top-rated radio station in the Chicago market in the 18- to 34-year-old demo the station targets. Bentli also was the No. 1-rated afternoon drive anchor in the 18- to 34-year-old demo in the just-released June Arbitron ratings book.
