CLEAR CHANNEL Hot AC WSDD (100.3 THE SOUND)/ST. LOUIS hires former CUMULUS Hot AC KBBY (B95.1)/OXNARD-VENTURA, CA and Hot AC sister KRUZ/SANTA BARBARA PD TODD VIOLETTE as its new MD/morning star, effective JUNE 21st.
WSDD and Top 40 KSLZ PD JEFF McHUGH told ALL ACCESS, "We are very happy to have TODD join us here. The things we like best about TODD are that he's smart, funny, is very entertaining, and yet can play a lot of music. That's a big differentiation from all of the other great morning shows in the market, which are more talk-oriented than we are."
VIOLETTE added, "I'm very excited to finally work for CLEAR CHANNEL. I have great respect for (SVPP) JON ZELLNER, (OM) MARK ANDERSON and JEFF McHUGH. Plus, I've really grown tired of nothing but sunshine 365 days year! I'm looking forward to many great years in ST. LOUIS."
