Lou and Heather, Bob & Tom making the switch in Des Moines


Cumulus’ Classic Rocker KGGO-FM morning drivers Lou and Heather (Lou Sipolt and Heather Burnside) are taking their longtime morning show across the hall to co-owned News/Talk 98.3 WOW-FM (KWQW). Trading places with Lou and Heather on KGGO (94.9) will be the Premiere-syndicated Bob & Tom Show.

“The Des Moines Morning News with Lou and Heather” will make its debut on WOW FM Monday, 1/2 from 5 a.m. to 9 a.m. weekdays.  Lou and Heather’s last show on KGGO-FM takes place on Friday, 12/30 and will feature special guests and a sharing of KGGO memories. 

Cumulus Media SVP/Programming Mike McVay said Bob & Tom’s show is better suited for the Classic Rock format of KGGO and will better position both stations for the future. “There is no better time, than the week that starts with the Iowa caucus, to launch these new morning shows.”
