Albany Radio: Bob Wolf Lands Gig At WKLI-FM

That didn't take long: A week after parting ways with a Woodstock radio station because his brand of morning show humor turned off listeners, Bob "Wolf" Wohlfeld has landed a new gig just up the dial: hosting a morning show on WKLI-100.9 FM.

According to the Albany, NY Times-Union, Wohlfeld starts his latest incarnation of "Wakin' Up With the Wolf" at 6 a.m. Monday. Just last Thursday, he and WDST-100.1 FM Woodstock, NY parted ways over content, ending Wolf's two-week stint at the station. See posting from earlier this week, Click Here.

"I'm not sure, but I might have set a world record" for getting rehired, Wohlfeld said Thursday afternoon. "This month has been like a blur."

WKLI plays a mainstream classic rock, and appears to be a better fit for Wohlfeld — a mainstay personality on WPYX-106.5 FM from 2000 to 2012 and before that on WPDH-101.5 FM in Poughkeepsie — than the progressive Woodstock station.

The move to the Albany Broadcasting station reunites Wohlfeld with General Manager Bob Ausfeld, who oversaw Wolf at PYX.

In hindsight, Wohlfeld said, his personality and the station were never going to work.
"Their level of political correctness I'm not capable of," he said.
