Jim Conlee Grabs Q92.9 Middays
June 22, 2009 at 9:49 AM (PT)
JIM CONLEE will be joining STEEL CITY MEDIA AC WLTJ (Q92.9)/PITTSBURGH -- his home town -- next TUESDAY (6/23) as midday host.
CONLEE has been working in HOUSTON (KLDE, KLTR) and SAN ANTONIO (KQXT) as both air talent and APD over the last few years.
Q92.9 PD DAN MICHAELS commented, "JIM brings a warm, personal, real approach on the air that fits well with the Q92.9 style, Additionally as we continue to emphasize our locally owned, locally involved attitude, JIM’s strengths in getting out into the community are huge advantages. His interests in online strategies is another way he will make a strong contribution. With so many stations in PITTSBURGH moving to voicetracking from other cities, we are proud to highlight hometown PITTSBURGERS on the air."
JIM CONLEE added, "I’m excited to join the Q92.9 team! Especially since I’m coming home. Born and raised in PITTSBURGH, my radio career has taken me coast to coast. But, when they say 'You can’t come home again,' they aren’t in the best business in the world! Radio holds that special chance to interact with a listener. Q92.9 is the most unique station in my home town that communicates on the air and on-line. Thanks to PD DAN MICHAELS and GM GREGG FRISCHLING GM for this opportunity to compete in the 'City of Champions.' Look out! I’m coming home!"
