96.3 WBBM-FM - B96

WBBM-FM (B96) – Chicago – 2/24/00 – Roxanne



This is a montage of Chicago’s longtime Rhythmic CHR recorded on a Monday afternoon, in early 2000.

It’s hosted by Roxanne (Roxanne Steele), who had been part of the B96 team since either late 1996 or early 1997, after being on the air at Phoenix’s Power 92 (KKFR). She enjoyed a 12-year run at B96 before moving to sister station WCFS (Fresh 105.9) for a brief period and then onto her current home — 96.3 WDVD in Detroit.

Despite moving away from its Dance-leaning format in 1997, B96 inexplicably continued to position itself as “Chicago’s Dance Beat”. The legendary Mitch Craig was still the voice of the station at this time.
