MILWAUKEE RADIO ALLIANCE Alternative WLUM (FM 102/1)/MILWAUKEE officially has named IAN MCCAIN its afternoon personality and upped weekender KELLY KATONA to evenings.
MCCAIN has been on the air in afternoons since the departure of JACENT JACKSON a few months ago (NET NEWS 5/20). MCCAIN will continue as Digital Program Director.
With MCCAIN moving from evenings to afternoons, KATONA has been tapped for evenings. She started with FM 102/1 in 2011 in the Promotions Department and joined the weekend on-air staff last year. KATONA will be on-air weeknights on FM 102/1 from 7p-mid effective TUESDAY, SEPTEMBER 2nd.
FM 102/1 PD MICHELLE RUTKOWSKI said, “KATONA’s enthusiasm and positive attitude are contagious. She speaks ‘Wisco’ and she has an uncanny ability to make people laugh until they drop a kidney. Katona also has a deeply nerdy passion for The Sims, which is obviously going to be our secret weapon. She already fits in well here, and I can’t wait for our listeners to get to know her better.”
“I’m so proud to work for this station and to be a part of the amazing team of people here," saaid KATONA. "I’m excited and honored to be given the chance to work with them and contribute to the success of FM 102/1.”
