CLEAR CHANNEL MEDIA + ENTERTAINMENT Alternative KYSR (ALT 98.7)/LOS ANGELES announced today the launch of its new morning show, THE WOODY SHOW, beginning APRIL 21st. THE WOODY SHOW will replace MUSIC IN THE MORNING WITH KENNEDY.
"KENNEDY is a wonderful contributor to our station, and has been a great part of our family for a long time, I’m pleased to say she will continue hosting MUSIC IN THE MORNING WITH KENNEDY in the interim,” said CCM+E/LOS ANGELES VP/Programming ANDREW JEFFRIES.
THE WOODY SHOW features WOODY, RAVEY, MENACE and GREG GORY, and provides an extremely interactive experience for listeners. The foursome are real life friends, who are having fun, raw, honest conversations about things happening in the world – they will reunite on ALT 98.7 for the first time since 2009, when they were a top rated morning show at CBS RADIO Alternative KITS (LIVE 105)/SAN FRANCISCO.
Since then, WOODY AND RAVEY have hosted the #1 morning show at EMMIS Alternative KPNT (105.7 THE POINT)/ST. LOUIS, while MENACE and GORY have been in SAN FRANCISCO at LIVE 105 and CUMULUS Triple A KFOG, respectively.
"THE WOODY SHOW is here to wake the market up with their unique friendship, driven by a cast of characters coming from a diverse range of backgrounds all finding a common sense of humor, love of communicating with listeners and desire to entertain," said JEFFRIES.
"As much as I'm going to miss the people in ST. LOUIS, I really couldn't ask for a better opportunity than this," said WOODY. "I'm psyched to be reunited with my old crew from SAN FRANCISCO, and beyond flattered that of all the people and shows ANDREW, MIKE and GREG could have chosen, they chose us."
ALT 98.7 PD MIKE KAPLAN added, "What’s most exciting for me about reuniting this crew is that they're genuine. They talk about things that are important to all of us. "These are the friends listeners will want to hang out with after work, at a party or any time."
