Beginning Monday, there will be a new lineup on 102.3.

After 20 years hosting “Fred the Show”from 10 a.m. until noon, Jeff Styles is passing the responsibility toBrad Giese.

Styles has been doing talk radio in Chattanooga since 1992.


“Fred the Show” is known for its range of topics from local and national politics to local “street-corner gossip,” according to the station’s website.

“I am happy to assume the role of Fred emeritus as a conversational contributor, guest provider or resource,” Styles said, according to the radio’s Facebook page. “This makes too much sense, and I know Brad will do a great job flying the Fred flag in years to come.”

Styles will still host the morning show, along with Jim Reynolds and Bill Lockhart,from 6 to 10 a.m.

“Morning drive is the most important day part on any radio station, including ours,” WGOW-FM interim program director Lockhart said via Facebook. “Our goal in expanding to four hours isto make this the best radio morning show in the Southeast.”

The 9 to 10 a.m. portion had previously been a show called “The Nth Degree,” withReynolds hosting it since 1996. The late Wally Witkowski and Jerry Harvey also previously helped hostthe show.
