Omelette & Coates Morning Show Debuts On The Bear

By Beth Milligan | Sept. 11, 2017

Classic rock station The Bear will debut a new radio morning show today (Monday) featuring hosts Steve “Omelette” Normandin and Rick Coates.

The Omelette & Coates show will air Monday through Friday from 5:30am to 10am. Mike Chires and Norm McKee, co-owners of The Bear's parent company Black Diamond Broadcasting, announced the show's launch at Normandin's annual "Kamp Omelette" event in Empire this weekend.

According to the owners, they signed the hosts following a year-long radio silence enforced by the duo's previous contract with WKLT. That station cut ties with The Omelette & Friends morning show in September 2016 following a decade-long partnership.

"Omelette & Coates have been off the air for the past year (twelve months to this day) to honor a non-compete in their previous contract," Chires and McKee wrote in a post on The Bear's website. "The top-rated morning radio show in Northern Michigan for the past ten years has a new home, or should we say Bear’s Den!"

Omelette & Coates will air on The Bear stations 98.1 & 97.7 FM in Traverse City.
