FORT MYERS BROADCASTING COMPANY Hot AC WINK-FM (THE NEW 96-9 WINK FM)/FT. MYERS has brought syndicated ELVIS DURAN on board for MONDAY-SATURDAY from 6-10a. "We conducted a nationwide search for our next morning show, but there were no other shows that consistently delivered a compelling, entertaining, adult morning show better then ELVIS DURAN," said VP/GM WAYNE SIMONS. "Even though ELVIS is not originating from FORT MYERS, WINK-FM will continue to be SOUTHWEST FLORIDA's leading community radio station."
ELVIS DURAN is not the only weekday addition to the station. DREW STEELE, who is a 15-year market veteran, will be joining the station for afternoons."I've always been impressed by DREW's talent, and after many years of competing against him, I'm excited to finally have him on our team," said PD CHAD RUFER. "Now with both DREW STEELE and market legend GINA BIRCH on the station, we have over 30 years of SOUTHWEST FLORIDA radio experience on the NEW 96-9 WINK FM."
