... DANA DIDONATO!
Yes, DANA, who announced her plans to move on a few months back, has decided to stay aboard for wakeups at COX Top 40 WBLI/LONG ISLAND, after an exhaustive search on her part to get to a warmer climate, and for her to be replaced with someone else -- both searches came up empty.
COX Top 40 Dir./Programming and WBLI PD JEREMY "I'M NO LONGER J.J." RICE told ALL ACCESS, "I guess she thought, 'I try to get out ... but they keep pulling me back in!' I am thrilled to have DANA in our LONG ISLAND 'Family.' She works hard, has awesome ratings, and puts up with me -- what else could I ask for?"
DANA, told ALL ACCESS, "It was a mutual decision to not leave, and they wanted me to stay. I'm really thrilled to continue at WBLI. I love the station, my co-hosts RANDY and DREW, and I've somehow grown to love J.J. in the process."
