CUMULUS MEDIA Rock WKSM (99 ROCK)/FORT WALTON BEACH, FL announces the launch of a new morning show called "The New Morning Movement With Misti and Gonzo" which will debut on MONDAY NOVEMBER 16th.
Co-host MISTI returns to her native FLORIDA after a 20-year radio broadcasting career in markets across the U.S. GONZO began his broadcasting career at WKSM in 1996, and from there, programmed stations in KNOXVILLE, TN and TALLAHASSEE, FL. Most recently, he was afternoon drive personality at WZLB/FORT WALTON BEACH.
HAYDEN GREEN, OM for CUMULUS FORT WALTON BEACH said, "This is a homecoming for GONZO, who got his start on WKSM many years ago. He brings a lot of experience and a lot of talent back to the EMERALD COAST. MISTI comes from the big leagues and has a passion for both the industry and the music. We're ready to rock."
WKSM PD WOOFY RAMONE said, "We're all excited to have MISTI and GONZO join our team at 99ROCK. They both understand the importance of being 'real' on the air, and they both live the Rock lifestyle. They bring a great wealth of experience to help continue our station's success. I look forward to many entertaining years to come."
MISTI said, "I'm so excited to ROCK the EMERALD COAST with GONZO each morning. The whole team has been so welcoming to me, and I can’t wait to meet all of our awesome listeners. I love the format, how promotionally active the station is-- and living within walking distance of dolphins, Rum, and a flip-flop emporium doesn’t suck."
GONZO said, "In 1996, two men had faith in a young guy who was still sporting a blue corduroy FFA jacket but wanted to be in radio, and they took a chance on me. Almost 20 years later, after programming some unbelievable radio stations along the way, it's an honor to come home to the radio station where I began my career. I'm extremely grateful to WOOFY RAMONE, HAYDEN GREEN,and the entire CUMULUS team for this opportunity. I am excited about the future of the station, and the future of the Morning Movement program."
