DIAL GLOBAL welcomes two new personalities, as LU VALENTINO joins for nights at the syndicator's Classic Rock format (heard on 80 stations), while JENNA (VERNA) MCKAY comes aboard for nights on the Hot AC format (110 stations).
VALENTINO, a veteran of Rock KUPD/PHOENIX, as well as stations in TAMPA, MIAMI, BUFFALO, ORLANDO and most-recently MOBILE, said, “This really is the dream job that I’ve been working toward my whole life. What a great holiday present! I can’t wait to entertain this big audience and have every ex-boyfriend in the country track me down.”
MCKAY said “This is better than the iPAD I was hoping to get for CHRISTMAS. I'm thrilled to be with DIAL GLOBAL, a growing company that cares about the product and the people. I look forward to mixing great music, good conversation and keeping my family off my back asking for concert tickets.”
EVP/Programming BEAU PHILLIPS added, “Jukeboxes are fine for diners, but great radio stations win with compelling content and strong air personalities. At DIAL GLOBAL, we are committed to attracting the best air talent, and we’re thrilled to have LU & JENNA on our team.” Both will start on JANUARY 3rd, 2011.
