GREG ASHLOCK announced TODAY that the veteran co-host of Top 40 KIIS morning show (On-Air w/ RYAN SEACREST), ELLEN K, has signed an extended contract and will remain with the show through 2010. "ELLEN has been at KIIS FM as the co-host of the Morning Show for many years," said ASHLOCK, "and she’s part of the institution and personality of this legendary station. Her talent, life experience and bond with the audience are just a few of the reasons we are thrilled to have her locked in."

Not only do I get to be with RYAN every morning, but I have the pleasure of working for and with the best in this business, from RYAN SEACREST, GREG ASHLOCK, JOHN IVEY, CHARLIE RAHILLY, DENNIS CLARK, the KIIS Morning Crew to the whole KIIS staff.
