CLEAR CHANNEL Rhythmic AC WDTW (106.7 THE BEAT)/DETROIT names JAY TOWERS as PD. “JAY is also the perfect guy to program our newest radio station, THE BEAT," said OM TODD THOMAS. "There is no one more passionate about the Rhythmic format. We are excited to get someone like JAY to do double-duty for the DETROIT team.
TOWERS will also handle wakeups on sister AC WNIC/DETROIT starting MONDAY, JULY 12th. TOWERS will work with existing co-host RENEE VITALE on WNIC.
This confirms an ALL ACCESS report from APRIL (NET NEWS 4/5), when we reported that TOWERS would eventually join RENEE in mornings at WNIC. TOWERS was already signed to a deal as CLEAR CHANNEL Programming/Talent Consultant and was doing middays at CLEAR CHANNEL Rhythmic AC WISX (MY 106.1)/PHILADELPHIA.
“JAY TOWERS is DETROIT. I can’t think of a better person to take the morning reins at legendary WNIC. His track record speaks for itself -– not to mention that everyone in town loves him,” commented THOMAS. “I know I’m not the only one who will be happy to have JAY back on the radio in MOTOWN.”
"Having worked with JAY so closely on consulting projects I've learned first hand that he's one of those rare individuals that's gifted both on and off-air,” said CLEAR CHANNEL SVP/Programming TOM POLEMAN. “To have that much starpower, passion, and programming intelligence rolled into one is a dream come true."
