DAWSON MCALLISTER LIVE has added JESSICA MCVAY-KERSHNER to its radio team effective immediately as on-air co-host and Internet Radio Coordinator. Her role will see her joining MCALLISTER on-air each SUNDAY night beginning in JUNE to lend a voice to the listener comments and interaction happening in real-time on MCALLISTER’s social networks.
During the week, MCVAY-KERSHNER will be interacting with followers of MCALLISTER and responding to those seeking his advice and/or help, and will direct all social media efforts for all DAWSON MCALLISTER terrestrial and internet radio programming. In her role, she will also be the PD of MCALLISTER's new Internet radio channel launching soon.
MCALLISTER commented, "I have never been more excited and confident in welcoming a new member to my show. JESSICA is wired to be that voice for hurting teens and young adults who are reaching out to our show for help, and I am honored to have her alongside me to ensure we never miss one listener’s question or call for help, whether it be on air or online. I can’t wait for her to get started with me on-air."
Exec. Producer WES "MCCAIN" CRAFTON added, "JESSICA has been schooled her entire life on radio, and I recognized her natural abilities and unshakable passion for what we do the very first time I met her. On-air, she is able to connect with our demo, and she has an empathetic, humble delivery which I am sure our listeners who need help will respond to. In the office, her years of experience working at MCVAY MEDIA in multiple realms of radio equip her to hit the ground running -- and I am delighted to have found the perfect addition to my team!"
MCVAY-KERSHNER commented, "Everyone at the DAWSON MCALLISTER ASSOCIATION are truly genuine people. They care about their listeners and want to help every person that calls in, and even those who don't. Just to meet DAWSON is a blessing and I am thrilled to be joining such a wonderful team."
