News 92 FM KROI's launch delayed, plus more details

I told you yesterday how 740 KTRH has returned to the NewsRadio name and appears to be beefing up its staff. Later I learned the News 92 FM KROI launch date has been pushed back. Plus even more familiar names have been added to the roster such as Dennis Spellman (former KIAH 39 reporter), Norm Uhl (former HISD press secretary and KHOU 11 reporter) and Brian "Eddie The Boner" Shannon (former Rock 101 KLOL morning show host). More from the FM station's Laurie Kendrick:

Here's the latest update from the newsroom at News 92 FM. We will launch precisely at 5 AM, next Thursday, November 17th. Set your radio dials now for AWESOME.

Lana and JP start things off from 5 to 9. Lanny, Your Traffic Master will tackle traffic duties every morning and I'll do feature stories and cover all the TV zeitgeist. Scott Braddock hosts a news show from 9 to noon. The lovely and talented Martha Martinez will handle news cut ins at the top and bottom of the hour in that time span.

Then, Kevin "Mr. Smiles" Charles and the adorable, Carolyn Campbell will anchor the noon news, from 12-3pm and Bonnie Petrie and Mike Barajas, the long time nightly anchor at FOX 26 will handle afternoons from 3 to 7. Dennis "Ray of Sun" Spellman will handle evenings from 7-10.

Other famous names you might recognize offering their vast wealth of TV and radio experience is former KHOU 11 Reporter, Norm Uhl will produce the morning show. The groovy Alicia Alaniz produces noon and the legendary Brian "The Boner" Shannon will make sure everything is in order every afternoon.

The incredible Pattie Shieh is our morning reporter and [Matt Sampsell], who's as sweet as the day is long, will bring you news from the field every afternoon. The adorable Jorge Vargas handling morning sports and the irrascible Craig Roberts (who I adore) has afternoon sports handled. Denise Bishop is the News Director and [Brent Clanton] "Dr. Cool Daddy" is our Business Editor.

The vast support we've received from a newsradio hungry populace has been incredible. Thank you. Give us a listen. We feel certain you'll LOVE what you hear.
