Kelly Mac Out As V103 Midday Host & WGCI Asst PD

Kelly Mac, who has been midday host of WVAZ-FM/V103 and the Assistant Program Director of WGCI-FM only since last December 3rd, has already been released. No specific public reason is being given for the abrupt exit after just over three months on the job.

On November 21st last year, the Chicago offices of Clear Channel Media + Entertainment were happy to announce the hiring of Kelly Mac. She was hired to replace Kris Kelley, who exited her roles as midday host of WVAZ-FM and Assistant Program Director of WGCI-FM to take over as the new Program Director for WKSC-FM and WGCI-FM in late October.

Kelly Mac came to Chicago from Clear Channel Philadelphia's WUSL-FM and WDAS-FM, where she has been the Assistant Program Director and Music Director since February 2011. It was her first time working in Chicago and the largest market she has worked in.

A native of Cleveland, OH, Kelly Mac began in radio in 1999, working her way from the bottom to the top. She started as a part-time receptionist for Radio One, Inc. From there, she later became Programming Assistant at WZAK-FM and WENZ-FM in Cleveland. After that, she was able to become an on air personality, something she had always dreamed about. Between her start in Cleveland to her most recent jobs in Philadelphia, Kelly Mac has worked in Charleston, SC, Mobile, AL, and Greenville, SC -- always working on the air and also helping with programming behind the scenes.

No replacement for Kelly Mac has been named. Various staffers will fill-in the V103 midday shift for the time being.
