BEASLEY BROADCAST GROUP Hot AC KVGS (STAR 107.9)/LAS VEGAS announces the debut of "MORNINGS WITH MARK AND AIMEE" weekdays from 5-10a replacing APD/MD BRIAN HAMMER who will now move to afternoons and continue his APD/MD duties. Look for the new morning show to launch on MONDAY (7/6).
LAS VEGAS morning show veteran MARK DICIERO is well-known from his role with the crosstown KMXB (MIX 94.1) MARK AND MERCEDES IN THE MORNING and was voted "Best Radio Personality" for 12 consecutive years by the LAS VEGAS REVIEW-JOURNAL in their "BEST OF LAS VEGAS" readers poll.
MARK DICIERO joins STAR 107.9's co-host and "rising star" AIMEE MONTGOMERY who relocated to LAS VEGAS from upstate NEW YORK.
MIKE MAKENZIE also joins the STAR 107.9 morning show for Executive Producer duties. MAKENZIE began his radio career at the age of 19 in HARRISBURG, PA and previously did a stint with DICIERO at KMXB. He has also done voice and production work for several shows on the LAS VEGAS STRIP.
BEASLEY/LAS VEGAS Market Mgr TOM HUMM commented, "Having worked with MARK for many years, I can say he brings entertainment and fun to radio that is unmatched in the LAS VEGAS market. MARK's wit, charm and kind demeanor make him a trusted friend to his listeners. And, this new addition of MORNINGS WITH MARK AND AIMEE to BEASLEY's STAR 107.9 complements some of the finest morning shows in the radio industry, including MIKE AND CARLA at KKLZ, RICK AND KRIS at KCYE, CANDY AND ZENJA at KOAS and ALAN STOCK at KDWN."
According to PD MIKE O'BRIAN, "It was time to take STAR to the next level and the only person I could think of, who could make it happen overnight, was MARK DICIERO! Locally, there’s no one more recognizable right now, despite being off the air for the past six months.
AIMEE MONTGOMERY is new to radio, but she's a natural ... smart, charismatic, very personable and all those charactreristics will come through the radio. We’ve been able to put together a great line-up and with the addition of MARK AND AIMEE. I have no doubt that MORNINGS WITH MARK AND AIMEE will be a huge success!"
MARK DICIERO added, "The morning stars are finally aligned in VEGAS, I could not be happier to be working with AIMEE MONTGOMERY and MIKE MAKENZIE on the new STAR 107.9 morning show. We're fired up and ready to go on JULY 6th! It's also a true privilege to be reunited with Market Mgr. TOM HUMM and to be working with LAS VEGAS radio legend MIKE O'BRIAN as our PD.
According to BEASLEY MEDIA GROUP's VP Of Programming JUSTIN CHASE, "I had the pleasure to work with MARK a few years ago and can honestly say there are only a handful of personalities that understand how to bring the ‘show business’ to radio like MARK. MARK is one of the best at finding and developing untapped stars, which I expect he'll do again with AIMEE. LAS VEGAS already has a deep relationship with MARK and I know they’re about to fall in love with this new show!"
