91X/San Diego Names Tommy Hough Morning Drive Host
December 8, 2015 at 1:14 PM (PT)
LOCAL MEDIA SAN DIEGO Alternative XTRA-F (91X) announces the addition of longtime SAN DIEGO radio personality TOMMY HOUGH for AM-drive replacing MATT STONE.
Best known in the market as part of the original cross-town Alternative KBZT (FM 94/9) air staff, TOMMY was recently heard on weekends at the now-defunct Triple A KPRI, and as the host of the MANDATORY MARLEY segment on the KPRI morning show.
“It’s pretty unbelievable to be coming to 91X,” said HOUGH. “This is the station that’s been tenderizing the ears of SAN DIEGO since 1983, and has played a large part in molding the tastes and musical vibe of the SAN DIEGO community with a sound we take for granted today. 91X has been the region’s ears, musical conscience and tastemaker for three decades, and continues to play that role.”
TOMMY added, "In many ways, coming aboard at 91X is like coming home, because there’s so many great people and personalities here I’ve worked with over the years like HALLORAN, MIKE AITKEN and TIM PYLES. And I’ve known my fellow PITTSBURGH native ROBIN ROTH for years, but we’ve never actually worked together, so it’s a real pleasure."
