CUMULUS Hot AC WPLJ/NEW YORK has officially rebranded and launched its SCOTT SHANNON-less wakeup show as “The TODD Show,” with TODD PETTENGILL now the sole host of the 6-10a timeslot.
“’The TODD Show’ is the natural progression for WPLJ and PETTENGILL. He is one of the most talented people that I have met in this business and I am proud to be working with him as a part of PLJ’s rebirth,” said VP/Market Mgr. KIM BRYANT.
“I’m beyond excited to anchor a live and local morning show in the #1 radio market in the world,” said PETTENGILL. “Thank you to Governor CHRIS CHRISTIE for giving me my own lane on my commute in from NEW JERSEY and to Mayor BILL DE BLASIO for allowing me to follow his caravan to get me to the studio quickly.”
PETTENGILL will be joined on-air by longtime Exec. Producer/Spiritual Adviser JOE “MONK” PARDAVILA, COOPER LAWRENCE, ANNE MARIE LEAMY, SHEILA CICHON WATKO, BILL FITZPATRICK and MEATBALLS.
