So, that makes two smart moves for station management in recent months. Marier to the afternoon drive and Too Tall to a daily midday shift. Marier, a real professional and great announcer was hardly the ideal candidate for any morning show. Long after hitting prime time on the morning show at 980 AM, Marrier and his gruff voice was moved to the afternoon slot at CHOM and showed what he had. Mornings were never his bag. Put it this way, Carey Price is a great goaltender. Are you going to switch him to a forward position just because he is a tremendous athlete?
Marier first took on mornings at CHOM in 1995 replacing John Derringer and then passing on the torch to the syndicated Howard Stern Show.
