October 2, 2015 at 4:35 PM (PT)
ENTERCOM/MILWAUKEE shuffles the deck in morning drive as WXSS (103.7 KISS-FM) morning host WES MCKANE moves to Hot AC sister WMYX (99.1 THE MIX) to join ELIZABETH KAY for the new morning show WES AND ELIZABETH. The change takes place MONDAY, OCTOBER 5th.
MCKANE stated, "When ELIZABETH and I came up with this idea we thought management would never go for it but they did! So now we better nail it! But with a combined 40-plus years of radio and almost 20 here in MILWAUKEE, I think we will be a great success! I cannot wait to get going with ELIZABETH and her quick wit, real talk and touch of sass on the legendary 99.1 THE MIX!"
KAY agreed, adding "WES MCKANE is an extraordinary talent who knows the MILWAUKEE market. I'm so excited to partner up with him in the morning!"
"WES MCKANE did great things on 103.7 KISS-FM and now he comes across the hall with ELIZABETH KAY on 99.1 THE MIX and I’m very excited to watch what happens next!" said PD JOJO MARTINEZ.
Over on WXSS, morning sidekick THE JUDGE will become a permanent part of the new RIGGS, ALLEY AND THE JUDGE morning show.
"We're pretty excited to bring a new fresh approach to MILWAUKEE mornings. THE JUDGE has already built a rapport with our listeners in his short time with us. We're stoked to take this to the next level!" said RIGGS.
THE JUDGE said, "I am super-excited for the opportunity to represent my hometown! RIGGS, ALLEY and I are ready to wake MILWAUKEE up -- literally, hah!"
ENTERCOM/MILWAUKEE VP/OPERATIONS BRIAN KELLY chimed in saying, "This is a win-win on both stations for the air talent, listeners and clients."
