CONNOISSEUR MEDIA Classic Hits WDRC-F (102.9 DRC)/HARTFORD is adding sister Rock WPLR/NEW HAVEN morning show CHAZ AND AJ for 5:30-10a (ET), beginning TODAY (9/2). CHAZ AND AJ continue to air on WPLR and sister Classic Rock WFOX (95.9 THE FOX)/NORWALK; the show was preceded in HARTFORD with a weekend stunt giving away cash in a Twitter-fueled scavenger hunt using the handle @DrCashCT that is being revealed today as being run by the station ("DrCashCT" equals DRC).
OM KEITH DAKIN said, “CHAZ AND AJ AJ have been the most successful morning show hosts in NEW HAVEN for 12 years. They took STAMFORD/NORWALK by storm a few years back, and now it’s time to bring CONNECTICUT’s best show to its biggest market.”
CHAZ said, “We’ve been entrenched in the HARTFORD community for years, so it’s fitting and off the charts exciting to be on the legendary DRC. DRC is one of the stations I grew up listening to, so I’m out of my mind fired up that our show will be heard on the best station in HARTFORD. We are humbled and drunk with power.”
Market Manager KRISTIN OKESSON added, “Adding this show to DRC enables us to deliver arguably the best morning team in CONNECTICUT to the HARTFORD market. We are committed to serving HARTFORD with local content, which is what CHAZ AND AJ do so well. These guys really deliver on funny, smart, serious, topical and local. From STAMFORD to HARTFORD, this show will focus on information relevant to CONNECTICUT, while remaining entertaining and topical.”
