AMATURO GROUP AC trimulcast KLST/FOUNTAIN VALLEY, CA-KLSY/THOUSAND OAKS, CA-KLSN/ADELANTO, CA (PLAYLIST 92.7)/LOS ANGELES has hired "Real Housewives of ORANGE COUNTY" reality star SLADE SMILEY to launch his own show, titled "Radio SLADE," with co-host KELLY JONES. "Radio SLADE" begins with a three-hour show on SATURDAY, JUNE 9th from noon to 3p; then will air weekdays from noon to 1p.
"I am extremely excited about having this opportunity with PLAYLIST 92.7," SMILEY said. "It has been such a pleasure working with this group of radio professionals. I am really looking forward to talking with listeners one on one, and sharing my thoughts regarding today's news, pop culture and relevant events. It is my hope that the PLAYLIST 92.7 FM listeners will enjoy getting to know me as much as I know I'm going to love talking with them. Radio is such a perfect compliment to my evolving love of improv comedy. What an amazing place to work out some fun and entertaining content."
"Getting to know SLADE over the past few months has been a pleasure," PLAYLIST 92.7 PD RICK SHAW said. "SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA radio listeners will soon have the chance to discover SLADE for themselves. He’s charming, witty, worldly and extremely bright. In other words, a natural for radio."
"We have been working with SLADE now on other projects; he has proven to be intelligent, quippy and a class act," PLAYLIST 92.7 GM MATT RODRIGUEZ said. "It seems like everywhere we go, people want to know what he thinks -- what better forum than radio to pull that off!"
