RUBBER CITY RADIO Talk WAKR-A/AKRON is adding another local talk show, hosted by anchor/reporter JASEN SOKOL. The new show will air 10a-2p (ET), between RAY HORNER's morning show and the syndicated DAVE RAMSEY show, starting MONDAY, FEBRUARY 24th.
In a release, SOKOL, who joined the cluster's news department from KENT STATE UNIVERSITY noncommercial WKSU/KENT-AKRON, where he served as WALTON D. CLARKE Graduate Fellow and produced local segments for "MORNING EDITION," said, “I’m excited to take on this new role as midday host on 1590 WAKR. It’s an honor to be a part of a heritage radio station with such a long history of commitment to the community. I look forward to telling the stories of the area every day.”
VP, Information Media ED ESPOSITO said, “We are proud to present the next generation of talent from Northeast OHIO. JASEN is a true pro, with experience during his college career. He’s smart, asks the questions that need to be asked but most importantly has the northeast OHIO sensibility and sensitivity WAKR listeners have come to expect.”
