Danny Bonaduce as the new morning host on WYSP? Come on, get happy.
 
It could happen, as talks at the highest levels of WYSP parent company CBS are in the works to import the Delaware County-born child star-turned-media personality, now doing a one-hour talk show for CBS’s KLSX in L.A. Also being considered is sidekick Shila.
 
WYSP (94.1) has been playing music in the morning since the firing of Kidd Chris in May.
 
WYSP chief Jim Loftus says Bonaduce, whom you may remember from the late, great Eagle 106 from 1988 to 1993, made a great impression on local CBS-ers when he was in town last month to box (and beat) Bob Levy. Bonaduce signed autographs as part of a WOGL charity event.
 
When I suggested to Bonaduce that he was on a short list, Bonaduce replied: “At 5-foot-6, I’m on everybody’s short list. … If they offered me a job in Philly, I would be on the next plane.”
