ENTERCOM Active Rocker WAAF/BOSTON's longtime morning show host GREG HILL has signed a long-term extension that will keep him on-air and in mornings with WAAF through 2017. HILL has been with WAAF for 26 years, 23 years as host of the "Hill-Man Morning Show," making him one of the longest standing morning show hosts in the entire radio industry.
"Nothing excites me more than getting the opportunity to wake up at 4a every morning for the next five years! There are few true organic radio stations left in AMERICA, and ENTERCOM is one of the few companies who values live local talent and still builds great radio brands like WAAF," said HILL. "I grew up listening to WAAF and I’ve been honored to host an amazing morning show for over 20 years. I'm really glad that through some random accounting error, I’ll be here for five more."
"You can count on one hand the air talent in BOSTON who truly qualify as personal brands, and the HILL-MAN is among that elite group," said WAAF PD RON VALERI. "I've been collaborating with GREG HILL in one capacity or another for 25 years now, and it's a privilege for me to be able to carry on that partnership with him to build on the success of his show at WAAF."
"Every day GREG delivers one of the best morning shows in all of radio. GREG connects with BOSTON in a way few people do and we couldn’t be more excited that GREG will remain with WAAF for many years to come," said VP/GM JEFF BROWN.
