Follow a national talent search, which has been on since MARCH, CITADEL Hot AC WPLJ/NEW YORK VP/Programming TOM CUDDY and PD/morning pronounces SCOTT SHANNON have tapped JEFF MILES for middays (10a-3p), filling the gap when RACE TAYLOR moved to afternoons.
MILES, who begins in late AUGUST, is already in the CITADEL/ABC family, as he's been hosting the nationally syndicated "Cruz in the '80s" for the ABC RADIO NETWORKS, as well as being Executive Producer for Country KSCS/DALLAS' morning show, "THE DORSEY GANG."
"Wow! Talk about the gig of a lifetime! This has been a dream of mine since i got into radio," says MILES. "WPLJ and NEW YORK CITY, who could ask for anything more in their career? Add to that the chance of working with two of the best people in this business like TOM CUDDY and SCOTT SHANNON. Now if I can just find some tickets to a YANKEES game in this final season of the old stadium."
CUDDY added. "SCOTT SHANNON and I are blessed that we haven't had many openings in the past two decades at 'PLJ, but for some enchanted reason we've had great luck with TEXAS radio talent. Ten years ago we found RACE TAYLOR at KDMX/DALLAS, and he's been in the 'PLJ family creating great radio ever since!"
