WESTWOOD ONE makes it official and names CBS RADIO Alternative KROQ/LOS ANGELES assistant "KEVIN AND BEAN" morning show producer "PSYCHO MIKE" CATHERWOOD as DR. DREW PINSKY's co-host on "LOVELINE." CATHERWOOD has been serving as DR. DREW's co-host on an interim basis and will now take over the slot on a permanent basis.
"I can't properly describe how honored I am," said CATHERWOOD. "I'm a local guy who grew up listening to KEVIN & BEAN and LOVELINE, so to be a part of both shows is downright surreal. DR. DREW is what makes LOVELINE special, so I'm going to do my best to add something positive to the show without getting in his way."
"We're really going to have some fun this year," added PINSKY. "How could adding a co-host named 'PSYCHO MIKE' not make for some great radio? MIKE's huge personality will bring a new energy to the show that our audience will feel immediately."
"MIKE's unique personality and creativity makes him the obvious choice to join DR. DREW on LOVELINE," said SVP/Programming MAX KRASNY. "LOVELINE has a long of history of great co-hosts and I am confident MIKE will continue to set new standards for creating entertaining content."
