Josh Gears Moves To Mornings On WLEV
April 3, 2015 at 4:07 AM (PT)
CUMULUS Hot AC WLEV/ALLENTOWN afternoon personality JOSH GEARS officially moves mornings as co-host of "JOSH & SCOTT in the Morning." The show airs weekdays from 5-10a and features co-host SCOTT EVANS. GEARS hosted afternoons on the station since 2012. Prior to that, he was on-air at CLEAR CHANNEL/iHEARTMEDIA WAEB (B104)/ALLENTOWN-BETHLEHEM and at WISX (MIX 106.1)/PHILADELPHIA.
PD LAURA ST. JAMES said, "JOSH has shown us over the last few months in mornings just how deserving he is of this role. It's always great when you can promote from within -- and in this case, all the pieces fell perfectly into place."
New dad GEARS says daughter AIMEE's feeding schedule has helped him adjust to mornings. "I'm already getting up early with the baby, so I figured I'd stroll in and entertain the LEHIGH VALLEY with SCOTT EVANS." He added, "I would like to thank LAURA ST. JAMES, EMILY BOLDON and MIKE MCVAY for making this opportunity possible."
ST. JAMES, who has been filling in on afternoons, takes over PM drive duties.
