After 27 years, veteran Baltimore broadcaster Frank Luber is leaving weekday mornings on WCBM, the radio station announced.

His last day on the air as one-half of the the “Morning Show with Sean and Frank,” which he co-hosts with Sean Casey, will be Oct. 31, according to information on the station’s website that was confirmed Saturday by a station representative.

Luber, who has been with WCBM for 31 years, will remain with the station “to help with special projects and to continue to serve as a spokesman for some of the station’s major advertisers,” according to the website.

As of Nov. 4, the new morning lineup will feature Bruce Elliott as Casey’s partner on the morning show from 6 to 9 a.m. weekdays. Derek Hunter will join the station as host of the 9 a.m. to noon time period weekdays, which had been hosted by Elliott.

“Frank Luber has been an incredible asset to the station, and he will continue to be. He’s not going away,” WCBM General Manager Marc Beaven said in telephone interview Sunday.

“As a business, you have to look out for ratings,” Beaven added. “I’m mindful of a decline in some day parts ... And you need to move forward. We want to make it the best product we can ... We believe we have a great mix of local and national conservative talk radio.”
