BLI posted, "LONG ISLAND family, Today DANA and JAYSON are leaving us here at 106.1 BLI. Even though this is tough for us, we’d like to thank DANA for 11 great years, and JAYSON for 3 years of his own. We will always be proud to have had them as a part of our BLI team. We’ll miss DANA and JAYSON and all of us here at BLI wish them well in the future. Stay tuned for a brand new morning show coming to 106.1 BLI soon."
WBLI Dir./Branding And Programming and COX MEDIA GROUP Top 40 Format Leader JEREMY RICE told ALL ACCESS, "It has been a real pleasure working with them -- DANA for 11 years and JAYSON for nearly three years. I will miss then both very much and wish them nothing but big success!"
DANA DIDONATO told ALL ACCESS, "I felt honored every single day that I was given the opportunity to host BLI's morning show for the past 11 years. The past 3 have been a hilarious gift. Who gets to do a show with their best friend every morning? JAYSON and I stayed up last night talking about how the two of us are so excited about the future. For us it's open, unknown, but not scary. We know we will find an amazing forever home soon enough.
"I'm thankful to the team of managers at BLI who had a vision to do something different 10 years ago. They decided to put a woman into a role that is most commonly given to men in our industry. I'm thankful that they believed in me more than I believed in myself at times. I'm thankful that they gave me co-hosts that were not only some of the most talented people I've ever met but also the most kind-hearted, loving friends that were given to me at times when I needed them most.
"Not doing a show right now will be so weird, we'll actually have time to connect with people besides listeners! We'd love to connect."
