LOTUS RADIO Classic Rock KOZZ/RENO, NV has hired former KRDJ/LAFAYETTE, LA PD/morning man JACE EDWARDS to take over mornings for JIM MCCLAIN effective NOVEMBER 10th. MCCLAIN has been the KOZZ PD and morning host since the late '90s.
LOTUS RENO GM DANE WILT offered his feelings on MCCLAIN's morning exit and EDWARDS in this memo to the staff:
"I write this memo with mixed emotions. About a year ago JIM MCCLAIN let me know that, after nearly 20 years, he was ready to leave morning drive on KOZZ. Although JIM still has a passion for radio, he no longer wants to get up so darn early in the morning. We've spent the past year looking for someone to fill JIM's boots. We spoke with a lot of great candidates and have selected JACE EDWARDS as the new KOZZ morning host. JACE has worked in SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA and LAS VEGAS markets and will be moving here from LAFAYETTE, LA. JACE will start on NOVEMBER 10th and will co-host with JIM for a few weeks before JIM exits the show. Luckily for us JIM has agreed to stick around and continue to grace the LOTUS airwaves in other capacities."
