Calgaro Picked As WHQG/Milwaukee PD


Joe Calgaro is the new PD of Rock WHQG (102.9 The Hog) for Saga's Milwaukee Radio Group. He comes over from The Rockin' Apple, WAPL-FM in Appleton, where he also co-hosted afternoons.

Milwaukee Radio Group GM Annmarie Topel said, "We talked with many impressive candidates, but Joe was the best fit. His work ethic, values, creative and analytical abilities, and understanding of the goals of the station made him the clear choice. We are thrilled to have Joe on board and look forward to him taking the Hog to the next level."

Saga EVP/Group PD Steve Goldstein said Calgaro "brings a vast knowledge of tha format with a great balance of art and science -- he's got a left brain and a right brain."

Calgaro replaces longtime WHQG PD Keith Hastings, who announced plans to leave the station late last month. Calgaro said of Hastings, "He and his team have created a brand at the Hog that sets the standard for Rock radio. I look forward to the challenge of continuing and building upon that winning tradition."
