Commenting on ROSE, MARTIN added, "In DARREN’s short time at 98.7 he’s proven to be extremely knowledgeable in the music and lifestyle of the 98.7 listener, making him a valuable asset. We’re excited to make him part of the On Air Team."

"We are positioned to be one of the most exciting stations in the country. This talent line up will complete the sound, vibe and stationality, and our music pretty much speaks for itself. Keep your eye on 98.7 in 2008, ‘cuz we are about to rock LA!"
