EMERSON COLLEGE Triple A WERS/BOSTON announced TODAY (7/29) that market radio veteran GEORGE KNIGHT will join the station as co-host of its morning show from 6-10a, starting AUGUST 1st.
In addition to co-hosting the morning show, KNIGHT will also mentor students at WERS; while professional staff have overseen management and operations at WERS since 1949, KNIGHT will be the station's first professional on-air staff member.
WERS GM JACK CASEY said, “Collaboration is a long tradition at WERS, and we believe it's the best way serve our students and our listeners. We're delighted to welcome GEORGE KNIGHT to the WERS team. He is passionate about music, is a fan of the station's music format, and brings a wealth of experience that will greatly benefit those students who want to become part of the radio industry.”
"When I was a kid, I was introduced to a lot of the music that I love by sitting next to my radio for hours at night, listening to 88.9 WERS, so it feels like things have come full circle for me," said KNIGHT. "I'm excited to co-host the morning show alongside students, and to have the chance to share some of the wisdom I've picked up over my 20 years on BOSTON radio. My guess is the students will have a thing or two to teach me too."
