Atlanta Radio: Chris Dimino Returns On-Air Monday

Chris Dimino
Former 790/The Zone morning host Chris Dimino will be joining the morning show on sports talk WCNN 680 AM The Fan when he’s eligible to return to Atlanta airwaves March 17, according to Rodney Ho at accessatlanta. com.

The Fan President David Cickey confirmed Thursday that Dimino will be working with Perry Laurentino and Christopher Rude on the Rude Awakening.

Dimino has been with the Fan for five months but hasn’t been able to go on the air because of a non-compete clause in his previous contract with the Zone.

“We’re excited to have him on,” said Dickey, who simulcasts the Fan on 93.7 on the FM dial. “He spent a lot of time away. He misses it and is looking forward to being back in the saddle.”

Last June, Dimino lost his job as part of the Zone’s morning shot Mayhem in the AM after a brief bit his former colleague Nick Cellini thought up went viral – in a bad way.

In the bit, Cellini played Steve Gleason, an ex-New Orleans Saints football player suffering from the degenerative nerve disease ALS, in a robotic voice doing stupid knock-knock jokes. Dimino protested at the start of the bit and mostly kept his mouth shut during those two painful minutes. The audio bounced around the Web and by the end of the work day, he, Steak Shapiro and Cellini were gone.

All three have apologized.
