CLEAR CHANNEL Hot AC KBIG (104.3 MYFM)/LOS ANGELES PD ANDREW JEFFRIES names CLEAR CHANNEL Top 40 WKSC (103.5 KISS-FM)/CHICAGO afternoon host TY BENTLI for afternoons beginning on MONDAY (8/9).
TY's radio career began in high school at SIOUX FALLS, SD, and his first on-air job was at KCLD/ST. CLOUD, MN. He later became APD/evening host at crosstown KKSR (KISS 96) prior to joining WKSC (103.5 KISS-FM)/CHICAGO. TY eventually went on to host shows for the MTV NETWORK.
According to KBIG PD ANDREW JEFFRIES, "Bringing TY to MYFM adds a new dimension of interactivity and freshness from a guy who really loves to be with the listeners on and off the air. TY has a strong drive with loads of energy and he has a bit of a naughty streak in him - our listeners will love that especially if you’re into FACEBOOK and TWITTER, you’ll be getting things there that can’t go on the air! I'm looking forward to him joining our team of VALENTINE, IRMA, KARI, LISA HOLLYWOOD HAMILTON, and BILLY BUSH. That’s a world class DJ lineup."
TY BENTLI commented, "I can’t wait to get to LA and interact with the amazing team that CLEAR CHANNEL has put together in the strongest radio market in the country! Plus, I’m really looking forward to all the things I will be able to learn from ANDREW JEFFRIES, assuming I can figure out what he’s saying with that accent."
TY's departure leaves a LARGE slot for someone to fill, ASAP, back in DA WINDY CITY.
The official list of requirements would choke a horse, but bottom line, you need to relate to the 18-34 female audience, be relevant, entertaining, amazing on the air, and be a whiz with NEXGEN, VOXPRO, and PRO TOOLS.
