XM THE LOFT/XM 50 PD MIKE MARRONE said, "It is with great joy that I announce the arrival of the new LOFT Music Director, JERRY RUBINO. JERRY is an industry vet who has held positions at a variety of cutting-edge radio stations and record companies over the last 20-plus years. I had the pleasure of working with him back in the '80s at WHTG in ASBURY PARK, NJ, and our paths have crossed many times over the years. JERRY possesses the most important quality necessary for this position -- a deep love of music -- and backs it up with encyclopedic knowledge of every musical nook and cranny imaginable. I am both proud and extremely humbled to have a person of this caliber to help me run THE LOFT."
