It's been almost one month since the exit of TOM KENT from his syndicated Oldies shows (NET NEWS 7/3), and TKO RADIO NETWORK has hired two high-profile replacements for its CLASSIC TOP 40 WEEKNIGHTS and HALL OF FAME COAST TO COAST/INTO THE 70s WEEKEND programming.
MARTY THOMPSON has been chosen to host weeknights and SATURDAY night live, while JOHN "RECORDS" LANDECKER will host INTO THE 70s on weekends.
THOMPSON, a veteran of CBS RADIO and ENTERCOM in CINCINNATI, and Dir./Oldies Programming for CLEAR CHANNEL/LAS VEGAS for six years, says, "It's time for the THOMPSON family reunion! I'm proud to build on their tradition of awesome programming. The show promises to be more relevant, more compelling and still full of fun! Look for lots of listener involvement, the greatest stars on live with us, and of course the greatest hits of the '60s, '70s and '80s. I’m thrilled to be back playing the music I love for a nationwide audience -- let the party begin!"
Legendary radio personality JOHN "RECORDS" LANDECKER adds, "Yes, 'RECORDS' truly is my middle name. This is so great. It’s a perfect match. Let’s see -- JOHN 'RECORDS' LANDECKER playing songs from the '70s. What a concept! Look out AMERICA, here I come!"
TKO spokesperson SUSAN THOMPSON says, "We are extremely pumped to be able to offer huge talent like this to our loyal affiliate base, and we look forward to continuing to add new affiliates and to growing listener fans all across AMERICA!"
