COX MEDIA Country WWKA (K92)/ORLANDO OM STEVIE DEMANN tells ALL ACCESS midday personality DAKOTA will team with current morning host AJ MAGUIRE beginning MONDAY, MARCH 31st.
DAKOTA succeeds ASHLEY FIGUEROA, who earlier this month announced she would leave the station and relocate to NASHVILLE (NET NEWS 3/7).
DAKOTA’s real name is ASHLEY STEGBAUER; she will use the name "ASHLEY" when teamed with MAGUIRE. As DEMANN explained to ALL ACCESS, “The reason the name DAKOTA came about on K92 was because we already had an ASHLEY [FIGUEROA]. This move also allows us to carry on a Superbrand within our Superbrand – The “AJ & ASHLEY” brand. AJ and ASHLEY (DAKOTA) will have some light-hearted fun on-air with this next week to make the audience aware and then we will be off and running!”
STEGBAUER -- as DAKOTA -- joined K92 for middays last year, after a stint with COX Top 40 WPOI/TAMPA. She began her career in promotions at Top 40 WAPE/JACKSONVILLE.
A search is on for the new midday personality at K92; DEMANN says in the meantime, ASHLEY will continue to hold down middays following the morning show.
