Gregg Henson has been named OM for news/talk WOWO (1190), Ft. Wayne, Indiana . He’s also got responsibility for WOWO’s all-sports sister, “ESPN 1380″ WKJG.

Henson was last heard in Dallas as the morning show co-host on sports/talk “Fan” KRLD-FM (105.3), but prior to that he was programming and on the air in his hometown of Detroit for WDFN & WXYT-AM (1270), at Philadelphia’s WPEN-AM (950) and at KVET-AM (1300) in Austin, Texas.

Henson writes on his blog, “This position marks my transition from sports talk radio to News/Talk radio and I am doing it with a really great station that those in radio know is truly a legend. For my listeners in Dallas and Detroit, WOWO is one of the Midwest’s great radio stations similar to WBAP (820/96.7) in Dallas and WJR-am (760) in Detroit.”

WOWO GM Mark DePrez says, “Gregg has made a conscious decision to transition his career from sports talk to news talk. We are fortunate he chose WOWO to establish himself as one of the next up and coming news talk programmers.” Henson takes over on May 2.
