PEAK BROADCASTING Talk KMJ-F (105.9, THE FM KMJ)/FRESNO has inked former crosstown KKBZ (105.1 THE BLAZE) morning host JENNIFER LIPP to host mornings 5:30-8a (PT), starting SEPTEMBER 10th. LIPP is best known for her years co-hosting mornings with fellow KMJ host CHRIS DANIEL (now 3-5p) and BRAD GIESE at crosstown KRZR.
OM SKIP ESSICK said, “For over a decade, JENNIFER LIPP and co-host CHRIS DANIEL dominated morning Rock radio in FRESNO. Even after being off the air for almost a year, LIPP was voted second (to KMJ’s RAY APPLETON) in the FRESNO BEE’s 2012 People’s Choice Awards. Now, both are a part of the next generation of local Talk radio on 105-9, The FM KMJ.”
“It is a dream come true to grow with the KMJ brand” said LIPP. “This is the most exciting endeavor of my career, and I am looking forward to the journey with both the listeners who have joined me in the past, and those I have not yet had the pleasure of meeting.”
SVP PATTY HIXSON added, “ JENNIFER's long-time track record of success is the perfect choice for KMJ-FM’s first ever live and local morning show. Her commitment to the community and extraordinary name recognition throughout Central CALIFORNIA is totally consistent with our many talented local personalities that make the fabric of the KMJ brands."
