And next month, Neupert will shepherd a new program on the air. Brett McMillan, a student at Lindenwood University, won the station's contest to find a new weekend host, beating out more than 170 competitors who auditioned over the past few weeks in events held at SIUE-Edwardsville.
“When this started, we would have been really happy with any of the final eight– and most of the rest of the sixteen finalists," Sterlng said in a station press release. "In Brett, we think we have found exactly what thiscompetition was designed to find – a host that is really good today, will be better down the road,and someone we would not have found otherwise.”
According to the station, McMillan's program will begin in April.
