TKO PRODUCTIONS, INC./DALLAS, TX has signed KENT JONES to host a brand new show called "Totally Awesome Eighties," a five-hour show featuring the pop, rock and party hits of the 80s.
A 35-year radio veteran, JONES' career has taken him to NEW JERSEY, KENTUCKY, OHIO, INDIANA, and OKLAHOMA. In the 80s, he hosted "Hit Magazine" on WTVN/COLUMBUS. He went on to be morning personality and PD at Classic Hits stations in INDIANAPOLIS and OKLAHOMA CITY, and programmed the legendary Classic Hits KOMA for more than two decades.
Said JONES, "Hosting 'Totally Awesome 80s' is an exciting trip back to a decade that was really fun for me in radio. The music was great and life was good. We had great movies, classic video games, the advent of CDs, VCRs, and the personal computer revolution was just beginning. It was an exciting time and the music of the 80s brings it all alive again!"
