January 5, 2015 at 3:39 AM (PT)
WALLIS COMMUNICATIONS News-Talk WMEX-A/BOSTON will launch “BOSTON HERALD Drive” at 7a this morning (1/5). THE BOSTON HERALD reports, "hosts ADRIANA COHEN and TOM SHATTUCK, backed up by the HERALD newsroom, will cover all the breaking news of the day -- and provide instant analysis and interviews."
“We’ve always been straight with our audience,” said SHATTUCK, Exec. Producer of BOSTON HERALD RADIO. “This is the city of JERRY WILLIAMS, GENE BURNS and DAVID BRUDNOY. We are lucky enough now to have an opportunity to be custodians of those same airwaves and we will do it humbly, tirelessly and with the utmost respect for the listener.”
The station will also feature news anchor MATT FITZGERALD and sports anchor TYLER SULLIVAN.
“Media who simply recite the ‘live and local’ mantra aren’t cutting it. ‘BOSTON HERALD Drive’ will deliver with hosts who are from here and reporters who cover the news that is happening here right now, in real time,” said HERALD Editor-in-Chief JOE SCIACCA. “The power of our multimedia reporting combined with the 50,000 watts of WMEX makes this new morning show an instant must-listen.”
WMEX Pres. KEVIN WALLIS said, “'BOSTON HERALD Drive’ will be entertaining and informative, new and innovative.”
The paper notes, "rounding out the new look of HERALD RADIO is the full-time return of 'The Money Show' with RICK SHAFFER and SUSAN KAPLAN each day from 4-6p."
