Lyons Returns To Albany And WAJZ

ALBANY BROADCASTING Top 40/Rhythmic WAJZ (JAMZ 96.3)/ALBANY PD RUSS ALLEN brings in JEFF LYONS as morning show co-host/Music Director. LYONS, who was Promotions Director for WAJZ and Top 40/Mainstream sister station WFLY (FLY 92) in 2005, just left CUMULUS/TALLAHASSEE to come back to ALBANY.
LYONS evacuated FLORIDA after one tropical storm and before hurricane IKE hits. Look for LYONS to join WAJZ morning co-host BIG RAY in the morning starting MONDAY (9/15).
As far as LYONS' MD duties, PD RUSS ALLEN will continue to take music calls for the time being, but the clock is ticking on that. ALLEN told ALL ACCESS, "I’m gonna give JEFF a few weeks to get reacquainted with the market and get comfortable on-air, then I’ll hand the phone over to him and I’ll step back behind the curtain like DARTH SIDIOUS. We’re fortunate to bring him back to ALBANY."
