JOHN "ONLINE" MINGIONE will join CUMULUS MEDIA AC WPLJ/NEW YORK's weekday morning program, “TODD & JAYDE in the Morning” as Street Ranger and Video Vigilante, starting today.
MINGIONE was previously part of the on-air team on WBLI (106.1) morning show “DANA & JAYSON in the Morning," and was Director of Digital Media for COX MEDIA GROUP LONG ISLAND (WBLI and WBAB). He is a native NEW YORKER born and raised on LONG ISLAND. He holds a Bachelor’s Degree in Media Production from STATE UNIVERSITY OF NEW YORK AT NEW PALTZ. whose viral videos and parody songs have received millions of views on YOUTUBE and FACEBOOK.
CUMULUS MEDIA VP/Market Manager CHAD LOPEZ commented: “Everyone at 95.5 WPLJ and CUMULUS is excited to see JOHN bring his high energy and enthusiasm to the airwaves with TODD & JAYDE. His unique creative style is the perfect addition to the fast-moving morning show on WPLJ, already seeing tremendous results.”
WPLJ PD GILLETTE added: “In less than 16 months, 'TODD & JAYDE in the Morning’ has grown to be a Top 5 show with women 25-54 in the most competitive market in the universe. That’s beyond remarkable. But instead of being satisfied, the hiring of JOHNNY is like throwing gasoline on an already-raging fire, and is indicative of our commitment to make the show a three-dimensional dominator…on the air, on the street and online/social media.”
Said MINGIONE: “You can catch me on the streets of NEW YORK CITY with 'TODD & JAYDE in the Morning' weekdays from 6-10a! As the newest addition to the show, my goal is to bring a fun and weird twist to every morning. I look forward to bringing my videos, parody songs and unique perspectives to PLJ listeners!”
