ARJUNA Active Rock WXUR (92.7 THE DRIVE)/UTICA, NY adds JERRY KRAUS, "THE DOCTOR," for a three-hour weekend show on THE DRIVE. It's a return to UTICA after being off the air for five years for KRAUS, best known for his time in the market on WOUR.
KRAUS joins a station that is already the radio home of local radio people he previously worked with, something he considers a plus, saying, "I get to work people I know love the music and are committed to the community, my longtime radio friends TOM STARR, ALISON and JACK MORAN, RICK DEVOE and a new friend with a long track record in local UTICA radio, afternoon-drive personality FRANK MCBRIDE. It's a radio reunion that many have been asking me about for a few years now. As they say, timing is everything and the time is now."
Owner/GM MINDY BARSTEIN said, "The entire staff is thrilled to welcome JERRY to our team and continue highlighting the UTICA/ROME market. We have the premiere radio lineup in the market and are working hard to keep our events and promotions local."
PD TOM STARR adds, "It's great to be able to answer the number-one question listeners have asked me since joining THE DRIVE, 'When will JERRY be back on the radio?' No one loves music or this area more than he does. I look forward to working with JERRY again -- and to listening to him every SUNDAY morning."
