RIVIERA BROADCAST GROUP Smooth Jazz KOAS (105.7 THE OASIS)/LAS VEGAS is bringing in veteran broadcaster CARMY FERRERI as co-host of the station’s morning show, "The Smooth Jazz Sunrise." FERRERI has spent the better part of two decades as a programmer for a variety of stations..
"I'm thrilled to announce the addition of CARMY FERRERI to the top notch on-air staff that currently exists at THE OASIS," OM/PD DUNCAN PAYTON said. "I have long watched and admired CARMY’s great success throughout his broadcast career. We know he will help us continue to elevate Smooth Jazz 105.7, THE OASIS. CARMY’s chemistry with co-host DANA, the recent addition of DAVE KOZ to afternoons, the talent and warmth of Lynn Briggs during the workday, and our soon to be announced major-market night show gives THE OASIS an all star lineup that rivals any Smooth Jazz station in the country, which makes me very proud."
"Our commitment to the Smooth Jazz format is evident in our nationwide search for our morning show host and the recent upgrades to our lineup," RIVIERA BROADCAST GROUP VP/Market Manager DAVE PRESHER said. "Thanks to the vision of CEO TIM POHLMAN and CFO CHRIS MAGUIRE, and patience and excitement from our staff and the overwhelmingly positive response from our listening audience is truly remarkable. When CARMY expressed interest in joining the station, I couldn't have been more excited. He’s so much more than just a broadcaster or air personality. I'm eager to see his impact on the station and the Smooth Jazz product we offer each day."
