As reported earlier this week (NET NEWS 3/4), CARMEL HOLT is exiting her post as MD and midday host at CHET 5 Triple A WDST (RADIO WOODSTOCK)/POUGHKEEPSIE-WOODSTOCK, NY to join WFUV as AMD and midday host.
AJA WHITNEY will be assuming her on-air slot as of MARCH 18th.
"We could not be prouder of CARMEL," said RADIO WOODSTOCK Pres./Owner GARY CHETKOF. "We've been tremendously lucky to have had such an amazing talent on our airwaves and in our offices for such a long time. And while we're sad to see CARMEL go, we know that WFUV is a fantastic station in the biggest radio market in the world, and we can't think of someone more deserving for the position."
HOLT said, "WDST has been my home, and the staff and the listeners, my extended family. After almost 20 years, it is exciting to be moving on, but also bittersweet. Many sincere thanks to GARY and PD JIMMY BUFF for the opportunities they have given me, and big thanks to all the listeners who have joined me on the airwaves every day for the past few years, called in daily for Lunch Lounge requests, and faithfully tuned in for Acoustic Breakfast early SATURDAY mornings for the past 10 years. I will truly miss you!"
