CCM+E Sports WKRD-A/LOUISVILLE is adding JODY DEMLING to the weekday morning "Early Birds" show. The UNIV. of LOUSVILLE grad and past KENTUCKY SPORTSWRITER OF THE YEAR award-winner will appear on the show several times in JUNE, and take over hosting duties full-time on JULY 1st.
"We received nearly 200 applications for this position," CLEAR CHANNEL Regional Programming Manager KELLY CARLS said, "JODY really stood out for both his deep knowledge of the local sports scene, and his valuable experience covering a wide variety of different sports. JODY will be great at not just talking about sports, but sharing the `story behind the story'."
"Words can't express my excitement for being named host of the Early Birds," DEMLING said. " It's something I have had my eye on for years and the timing is perfect, taking over a great show, in a great time slot and during a year that has given us many great radio topics. There's no question in my mind, I will be working for and with the best radio team in the region. I've been in this state my entire life and feel honored to be selected as part of the CLEAR CHANNEL team. I look forward to spending my mornings with you, making your drive to work a little easier."
