Alpha Media Statement on Permanent Change of the Robbins and Markley Show to the Markley and van Camp Show from Mike Wild, Senior Vice President and Market Manager of Alpha’s Peoria operations:
Today we are officially announcing that David van Camp will permanently join Jamie Markley for the newly-named, “Markley and van Camp Show” on 1470-100.3 WMBD in Peoria, IL and FM News 101, KXL in Portland, OR. The first official day of the new show will be Monday.
It is with hugely conflicting emotions that we make this announcement. As you probably know, Jamie and Dave have been partnered together on the Robbins and Markley Show since Jamie’s original partner, Scott Robbins was sidelined with health concerns last August.
Scott’s big personality, extraordinary wit, and genuine relationship with Jamie have been huge factors in the show’s success over the last several years. He’s been an amazing talent and made countless contributions to the show and the stations.
Unfortunately, Scotty is still not able to return. We know his presence will be missed, but the show will be in good hands with Jamie and Dave. They have done a remarkable job over the last eight months and we’re 100% committed to their partnership going forward.
Our entire company is optimistic about Scott’s continued improvement, and whenever he is able, we hope to work with him again. But most importantly right now, we simply continue to wish for him to get better.
We encourage you to continue to keep Scotty in your thoughts and prayers and send him positive vibes for a full and complete recovery.
