David Lee Roth Has Stern Test Ahead on Morning Program

Advanced Theory enthusiast David Lee Roth will be helping to fill Howard Stern's shoes. This is a fantastic idea, of course, and billboard.com has the details:

The long wait for Howard Stern's replacement on 27 stations owned by Infinity Broadcasting ended today (Oct. 25). Splitting its morning strategy by regions, the company has named former Van Halen frontman David Lee Roth to take over Stern's slot in New York on WXRK-FM and other East Coast markets, while TV personality Adam Carolla will host mornings in Los Angeles on KLSX-FM.

...Roth's show will also air on WBCN-FM Boston (where he cut his broadcasting teeth earlier this year in preparation for the new gig), KLLI-FM Dallas, WYSP-FM Philadelphia and WRKZ-FM Pittsburgh.

...Also joining Infinity's morning lineup is Penn Jillette, one-half of the entertainment duo Penn & Teller. Beginning in January, Jillette will host a one-hour live radio show on Infinity's stations in New York, Chicago, San Francisco (KIFR), Washington, D.C., Detroit, San Diego, Baltimore and Las Vegas.
Is Teller the one who talks? I can never remember.
