BUCKLEY Talk WOR-A/NEW YORK adds longtime NEW YORK radio personality JJ KENNEDY as traffic and weather reporter for mornings on the JOHN GAMBLING show. KENNEDY, who will be in-studio with GAMBLING and news anchor JOE BARTLETT, replaces TOM NOTE in the slot; NOTE, a METRO NETWORKS anchor, continues to serve other affiliates.
"As one of NEW YORK radio's most recognized announcers, JJ's familiar voice and extensive experience is in keeping with the widespread enhancements WOR is making to our programming throughout each part of our broadcast day," said VP/GM JERRY CROWLEY. "We’re pleased to welcome her to our new morning team."
KENNEDY, who has worked at WBLS, WKHK, WNEW-A, and, most prominently, as night host at WLTW (LITE FM), added, "My mom started me on radio by listening to JOHN B., so I grew up with the GAMBLINGS. Now, this is a GAMBLING for our generation. For me, WOR is the epitome of radio, and I am thrilled to be a part of this exciting time in the station’s history."
