"This has been a long time coming for ALY," said iHEARTMEDIA/ATLANTA SVP/Programming BRIAN MICHEL. "She has excelled in every capacity here with her strong on-air presence, phenomenal work leading up to this point as the station’s APD, and great understanding of the local market. I am excited to unleash her expertise and passion for the brand and format."
ALY YOUNG told ALL ACCESS, "I feel like all of my radio jobs have been my dream jobs…but this one is special. AND I get to do it from my home town. I just want to thank BRIAN MICHEL and DAN HUNT for driving me here and dropping me off to play with my friends at the mall. They are both talented programmers with questionable judgment for trusting me with this great responsibility. Shout out to my former PD, CHRIS WILLIAMS, who encouraged me not to be a one-trick pony."
