Chad Tyson

iHeartMedia rock WDVE Pittsburgh (102.5) names Chad Tyson to afternoons, effective Aug. 1. Tyson, succeeds longtime afternoon talent Sean McDowell, who retires, effective July 31. He joins the station from rock sister “Eagle 107.5” WEGW Wheeling, WV, where he also hosted afternoons.

“We’re thrilled to have Chad join the WDVE family,” PD John Moschitta said in a release. “Tyson’s charismatic personality, accompanied by his extensive knowledge of music and sports, make him the perfect fit for our listeners and having Russ Rose as evening host is the icing on the cake for our program lineup.”

Additionally, Russ Rose takes evenings, which had been voice tracked by Big Rig.
