BEASLEY Top 40 WNKS (KISS 95.1)/CHARLOTTE morning talents DREX & CASSIDY are leaving the nest and heading to LINCOLN FINANCIAL, soon to be ENTERCOM, Hot AC WSTR (STAR 94)/ATLANTA for wakeups, joining TINGLE who is inbound from CBS Top 40/Rhythmic WRDW (WIRED 96.5)/PHILADELPHIA. The trio will be heard from 5:30-9a, MONDAY through FRIDAY and will make its on-air debut in mid-to-late JANUARY.
LFM/ATLANTA Dir./Ops SCOTT LINDY said, "Months of energy were spent to find the right combination of talent that packs the gear to do battle in ATLANTA morning radio. I'm not just excited and confident, but also honored to be at STAR 94 as we enter the DREX, CASSIDAY and TINGLE era."
"This is the opportunity we've been waiting for and can't wait to start," said DREX. "I'm so ready to live in ATLANTA and work alongside two of the weirdest and funniest men I know," added CASSIDAY. "I'm beyond excited about working at STAR 94 and the team that SCOTT LINDY has put together," said TINGLE.
Back at WNKS, PD JOHN REYNOLDS told ALL ACCESS, "DREX & CASSIDAY are going to STAR 94 in ATLANTA and MANEY is continuing on with the great success they have had in mornings so far at KISS. It's a compliment that I brought in a show that has both done well in the market in such a short time that major markets are picking them up! So we are casting a new show around MANEY."
