BEASLEY Top 40/Rhythmic WLLD (WiLD 94-1)/TAMPA has announced the addition of JOEY FRANCHIZE as host of its new night show, starting MAY 23rd. FRANCHIZE joins the team after an eight-year stint at CBS RADIO Top 40/Rhythmic WZMX (HOT 93.7)/HARTFORD.
WiLD 94-1 PD ORLANDO DAVIS commented, "JOEY FRANCHIZE is a great draft choice for WiLD 94-1, because of his energy, vibe and talent. Nights at WiLD have always had character that matches the party atmosphere of TAMPA and JOEY embodies that."
FRANCHIZE added: "I'm very excited to start this next chapter in my radio career in a beautiful city like TAMPA. I couldn't have asked for a better group of people to work with and learn from. Let's get WiLD!!!"
WiLD 94-1 night ratings toppers, THE NUTHOUSE, now check in earlier, as STIFFY and BUCKWHEAT have officially made the move to afternoons, with the same energy, guests and with their collective finger remaining on the pulse of TAMPA BAY.
ORLANDO commented: "After leading our #1 nights for seven years, their connection to the TAMPA BAY area is unrivaled and I can’t wait to see them go even higher.
STIFFY tells ALL ACCESS: "It's exciting to have the opportunity to now include drive time in our audience family.”
BUCKWHEAT added: “WiLD has been our home, so it feels great to get even more settled. Time to further expose THE NUTS!”
