Departing KiSS 103.5-FM night talent Silly Jilly pictured with Lady Gaga and Akon.
After just over two years in the position, there are reports that Clear Channel CHR WKSC (103.5 KISS-FM) night host Silly Jilly is leaving town. Ms Jilly is apparently heading to Houston to take over a similar position at a similar station, CBS Radio’s CHR KKHH (Hot 95.7). Sources quote S.J. as saying she will depart at the end of her contract and that while she’s enjoyed her time in Chicago, this new position, “made a lot more sense for me.”
What makes the move especially surprising is that S.J. is a Chicago-area native. Her page on the KISS 103.5 Web site says, “I'm a south side girl, born and raised, so yes I am a Sox fan! (I get so much crap for that around the station) “But the very next paragraph sheds some light on the decision. Houston’s allure may be driven by the local cuisine, “I love food and eating. I will never say no to a late night taco place and could probably eat Mexican food every day of my life.”
No word yet on what plans KISS 103.5 program director Rick Vaughn has for replacing the hole created by S.J. moving south.
