Chicago Radio: Brotha Fred Gets Contract Extension

Angi, Brotha Fred
Brotha’ Fred just signed on for four more years as morning personality at WKSC-FM 103.5 Kiss FM. Although his current contract runs through December, Clear Channel bosses rewarded with him an early, long-term renewal.

 “I always dreamed of the opportunity to do mornings in Chicago and to earn the loyalty of this great city,” he told Robert Feder. “This contract extension represents not only Clear Channel’s long-term investment in me but to the Chicagoland community.”

Terms of the deal were not disclosed, but Kiss FM is on a roll, with 2012 revenue of $21.1 million — up $5.5 million from the previous year. Fred, whose real name is Christopher Frederick, and co-host Angi Taylor are tied for third in mornings among women between 25 and 54, according to the latest Arbitron survey.

Tommy Austin, new vice president of programming at Clear Channel Chicago, said in a statement: “Brotha’ Fred has endeared himself to the 103.5 Kiss FM audience for nearly three years, and we look forward to his continued growth and success.”
