COX MEDIA GROUP has re-signed Top 40 WAPE (THE BIG APE)/JACKSONVILLE morning man MARK KAYE to a new multi-year deal.
"I am very excited and very shocked at the same time," said KAYE. "Excited because I love WAPE and am very proud of the great stuff we've been able to accomplish over the past six years. Shocked because I didn't think I'd be able to keep the wool over everyone's eyes this long. In all seriousness, I do want to thank KOBE, TODD SHANNON and Market Manager BILL HENDRICH -- they are an incredible programming team and I am very happy to continue working with them.”
PD KOBE said, "MARK has an amazing work ethic and it shows in the success of THE BIG APE Morning Mess. He is a large part of WAPE's market dominance, and I'm glad to have him on board for years to come!"
KAYE began hosting "THE BIG APE Morning Mess” in 2007. He was joined by his current co-host ANNA in 2009. "ANNA is not excited at all,” said KAYE. "She had a big countdown clock on the wall of the studio with a large banner that read 'Days Until My Nightmare Ends.' I guess she'll have to reset it."
