We say good hire by Cumulus...we wonder if Skip will work in some of "The Company" co-hosts (Nanette Lee, Wig, Sam Putney and Chris Arnold) from the successful Dallas-Ft. Worth radio morning show into his afternoon gig in the future. Skip has proven to be a favorite across the nation with his guest hosting appearances on the Tom Joyner Morning Show.
