CUMULUS MEDIA Top 40 WAOA (WA1A 107.1)/MELBOURNE, FL taps 17-year radio veteran TONY ZAZZA to host wakeups. ZAZZA was previously morning host of "ZAZZA Mornings" on CBS RADIO Hot AC KVIL/DALLAS-FORT WORTH.
CUMULUS SVP/Content and Programming MIKE MCVAY said, “TONY is an amazing talent, and KVIL's loss is our gain. We feel blessed. TONY will set a new standard for morning talent as he joins CUMULUS/MELBOURNE.”
RVP PETE DE SIMONE added, “TONY ZAZZA is a major-market talent and the ideal personality to carry forward the morning show heritage at 107.1 WA1A. This exceptional broadcaster represents the level of talent CUMULUS continues to attract to the company. We are looking forward to partnering with TONY's charities and continuing to bring meaningful contributions to the BREVARD COUNTY communities.”
ZAZZA said, “After almost 17 years in DALLAS-FT. WORTH, it’s time to take the show on the road. The opportunity to work with MIKE MCVAY, someone I have admired for years, is a dream come true. Not to mention my excitement to work with an amazing company and industry pros like PETE DE SIMONE and TERRY SIMMONS and a gorgeous, intelligent and passionate co-host CHEREE CARTER, who IS MELBOURNE, FL. DFW has given me more than anyone could ask for and it’s never easy packing up and leaving something you love. The ZAZZA Community Foundation will continue to support the DFW community for years to come and now will have the opportunity to change lives in MELBOURNE and along THE SPACE COAST. The opportunity to do what I love and share my passion with the community of MELBOURNE, FL and other markets across the CUMULUS family with this amazing team takes my love and excitement for waking up early to a whole new level.”
