'Life! With Mary Walter' Joins WTKU Lineup
April 2, 2013 at 1:00 PM (PT)
MARY WALTER is bringing her relationship talk show to a new home, with the debut of "LIFE! WITH MARY WALTER," weeknights 9p-midnight (ET) on LONGPORT MEDIA Classic Hits WTKU (KOOL 98.3)/ATLANTIC CITY, beginning MONDAY (4/8).
WALTER hosted "PASSION PHONES" on Talk WKXW (NEW JERSEY 101.5)/TRENTON for several years and has hosted political and general interest shows on Talk WCTC-A/NEW BRUNSWICK and is a regular guest commentator on FOX NEWS CHANNEL and fill-in host at FOX NEWS RADIO. The new show is being produced in partnership with WYD MEDIA MANAGEMENT, which is looking towards syndication of the show.
"I love the opportunities that being a guest host affords me, but there's nothing better than being back on a regular basis so I can build a relationship with the listeners,” said WALTER. “With a full time show, we can get to know each other and it becomes more personal for both them and me!"
“It’s a change for us,” said LONGPORT MEDIA VP of Broadcast Operations PAUL KELLY. “But it’s a change we believe our listeners will enjoy. The reality is that there needs to be a compelling reason beyond just music to get people to turn on their radios at night. Listeners will make an appointment with their radio so they don’t miss MARY.”
“We’re thrilled to have MARY join our team at KOOL 98.3,” said LONGPORT MEDIA president DAVE COSKEY. “Listeners to KOOL 98.3 who aren’t familiar with MARY’s show and style will find her new program addictive and hard to tune away from. Residents of SOUTH JERSEY now have another entertainment option in the evening.”
