COX MEDIA GROUP Country WWKA (K92.3)/ORLANDO has added OBIE DIAZ as morning co-host alongside MD/morning host ASHLEY STEGBAUER. DIAZ joins from Top 40/Rhythmic cluster mate WPYO (POWER 95.3) where he has handled mornings since 1999.
"OBIE lives the format, is passionate about Country music, and has a tremendous track record of success in ORLANDO radio," said WWKA Dir./Branding and Programming DREW BLAND. "I couldn't be more excited to add an all-star like him to the K923 line-up alongside ASHLEY."
As DIAZ moves to Country, current morning co-host AJ MAGUIRE will segue to afternoon drive for WWKA.That chair has been vacant since JR JAUS left to co-host mornings at COX Country sister KCYY (Y100)/SAN ANTONIO (NET NEWS 3/15). "For the past five years, AJ has done a fantastic job starting the day for millions of CENTRAL FLORIDA Country fans," said BLAND. "Now, he will help them end their days with his entertaining and interactive style of show that has earned him several CMA and ACM Award nominations. We are thrilled to now have such an established personality in this important daypart."
MIKE "SLATER" WHEATON had been handling PMD on an interim basis, and now moves to nights on K92 with additional programming duties. He assumes evenings for JOHN HUDSON, who has resigned effective FRIDAY (9/30).
