A change in the on-air lineup at CLEAR CHANNEL Top 40 KHTS (CHANNEL 933)/SAN DIEGO finds MD/night stud FRANKIE V. being joined by GEENA THE LATINA, coming in from wakeups with AJ at sister Hot AC KMYI (STAR 94.1), along with producer SEAN "SONIC" LECKIE, to team up to do morning drive at CHANNEL 933, beginning next MONDAY (11/8). They will replace syndicated morning duo JOHNJAY & RICH. In addition, "SONIC" will also handle nights at KHTS.
CC/SAN DIEGO OM JIMMY STEELE told ALL ACCESS, "My hat is off to JOHNJAY & RICH who did a fantastic job for us over the last year, working very hard on behalf of CHANNEL 933. They will continue to spread their success in morning drive at KZZP/PHOENIX, KRQQ/TUCSON, KKRZ/PORTLAND, and KVUU/COLORADO SPRINGS as well as many other markets in the future. We remain big fans of JOHNJAY & RICH."
"We have a lot of market equity in FRANKIE V. and GEENA," added STEELE. "Both are great solo talents and together they will bring a fresh approach to mornings moving forward, and along with "SONIC" will be a lot of fun to listen to. And, "SONIC" will bring a lot of energy to nights at CHANNEL 933, as well. All around great moves for us."
FRANKIE, who was home visiting his family in BOSTON when the good news was announced, told ALL ACCESS, "I'm excited for this dream opportunity. Hard work and commitment to the station continues to pay off. We have an amazing team with GEENA as a co- host and SEAN "SONIC" LECKIE as our producer. MONDAY can't come soon enough!"
ALL ACCESS grabbed a nice quote from GEENA, too: "I feel really blessed to be given this opportunity. FRANKIE is a true professional and having SEAN "SONIC" LECKIE as our Producer, I am confident that together we will make an awesome team. I'm excited to start MONDAY!"
