WRDW Makes Two Personality Moves; DJ Grooves And Buster
July 2, 2012 at 8:02 AM (PT)
Former CBS Top 40 WDZH (AMP 98.7)/DETROIT APD/MD/afternooner DJ GROOVES (NET NEWS 6/4)
has landed in his hometown of PHILLY and becomes the new MD/afternooner for BEASLEY Top 40/Rhythmic WRDW (WIRED 96.5), as of TODAY (7/2).
At the same time, BUSTER, who has been doing afternoons since KANNON's exit (NET NEWS 4/13) -- he eventually landed mornings at KLIF/DALLAS (NET NEWS 6/5) -- is now officially WIRED 96.5's new night stalker.
WIRED 96.5 PD DAN HUNT told ALL ACCESS, "I couldn't be more excited to have DJ GROOVES and BUSTER on the team here. They are going to bring big personality and massive ratings to the station."
GROOVES added, "I am so happy to return home to PHILLY and hit the air at WIRED 96.5."
BUSTER told ALL ACCESS, "Working for WIRED has been a long time dream of mine. I couldn't be happier to be surrounded by such an amazing crew! DAN HUNT is a very smart, cutting edge, and innovative programmer. With his leadership, I'm confident that the new era of WIRED 96.5 in PHILLY will be a brand that the rest of industry looks at for inspiration. I'm thrilled to host nights here! PS: CHIO, SHILA, TINGLE, JP, CASEY, and BETH KENT (our Promo Dir.) also deserve a shout-out for the amount of work they put in daily to make WIRED 96.5 a success."
