CBS RADIO Smooth Jazz KTWV (94.7 THE WAVE)/LOS ANGELES has named WARNER BROS. recording artist BRIAN MCKNIGHT as host of their new morning show. MCKNIGHT will debut on JANUARY 15 from 6-9a. MCKNIGHT will be joined by THE WAVE's veteran morning co-host PAT PRESCOTT, and ROSEMARY JIMENEZ, the show's producer.
"BRIAN MCKNIGHT is an amazing superstar whose mass appeal casts a really wide net for THE WAVE," said VP/GM DAN WEINER. "BRIAN's week of guest hosting was all we needed to hear to know that his talent would not only super serve our core listeners but also help draw in an entirely new audience who follow his music across many different formats other than just Smooth Jazz. He and PAT will make this a seamless transition from five years of success with DAVE KOZ in mornings."
Commented MCKNIGHT, "THE WAVE is one of my favorite radio stations, so to be joining the station as host of the morning show is incredibly exciting. PAT and I have a lot of exciting things planned for the show. I can't wait to get started."
