Stunt Over, Kiss/Utica Introduces New Morning Show
May 18, 2009 at 7:26 AM (PT)
The "format flip" announced last week by Roser Top 40 simulcast WSKS/WSKU (KISS FM)/UTICA was, as tipped by ALL ACCESS, a cunning stunt -- and merely the first step in announcing its lineup change.
The station went back to its format of the past 15 years, with interim morning show host JESSE JORDAN moving back to her midday slot and retaining her Promotions Director position. SHAUN ANDREWS slides back into afternoons and continues as PD. INTERN DAVE stays in the night time but adds Promotions/Production duties to his job description.
The station does unveil ERIC THOMAS from FLINT, MI as the new morning show host.
ANDREWS said, "After two hours of playing SINATRA, some "Stairway," GLORIA ESTEFAN and THE PROCLAIMERS, I’ve come to realize it all pales in comparison to the artistic integrity of T-PAIN."
Middayer JESSE JORDAN said of the changes, "I can’t wait to sleep in again. We welcome ERIC to the UTICA/ROME market and to our family here at RCN."
