WCIC (Peoria/Springfield/Bloomington, IL) says farewell to longtime leaders and air talents, Jill and Jeremy Tracey and welcomes Brian Williamsen and Janine Fairchild as new morning show hosts.
After concluding their time in Peoria with New Life Media, the Traceys will begin a new season of service in Omaha, with Northwestern Media’s KGBI. WCIC station manager, Dave Brooks reflects, “It’s been a joy working closely with both Jeremy and Jill these past 15 years. It’s a rare privilege to get to work with people you also consider to be close friends. They’ve served with excellence, and will bring a tremendous contribution to the community of Omaha through their new assignment.”
Brooks is upbeat about WCIC’s direction. “Brian Williamsen and Janine Fairchild have already made a deep heart-connection in afternoons and it was natural to ask them to host the morning show. They will have a huge impact in their new roles.”
“I am so humbled by the opportunity to serve God as part of this ministry,” said Williamsen. “It’s been such a joy getting to hang out with the listeners every afternoon and, looking ahead, I’m very excited to get to wake up every morning with the WCIC community.” Fairchild added, “I’m so excited about this new opportunity each morning to share how real life with Jesus can be hard, yet filled with joy at the same time!”
Mornings with Brian and Janine will begin July 29.
