RICK DEES will return to the LOS ANGELES airwaves in less than two weeks. CLEAR CHANNEL Rhythmic AC KHHT (HOT 92.3)/LOS ANGELES will feature "RICK DEES IN THE MORNING" beginning on WEDNESDAY, MAY 4th.
In making this announcement, CLEAR CHANNEL/LOS ANGELES Market Manager/Pres. GREG ASHLOCK said, "RICK is synonymous with radio in LOS ANGELES and this genre of music is perfect for him as he introduced many of these artists that ultimately paralleled his career path of popularity."
Head of Programming JOHN IVEY commented, "We asked HOT 92.3 listeners who their favorite radio personalities were and the two most mentioned were ART LABOE and RICK DEES!" IVEY continued, "So, with RICK starting the day with his infectious humor and old school hits and ART ending the day with requests and dedications, we are going to have some very happy listeners."
DEES commented, "I am proud to be welcomed back into the #1 radio market in the world, playing some of the best music ever recorded and especially getting the opportunity to reunite with a long list of CLEAR CHANNEL friends."
To celebrate his return, DEES will be throwing out the first pitch for the DODGERS/CUBS game at DODGER STADIUM at 12:10p after his debut show. In keeping with the old school theme, the day will feature DODGERS players in throwback jerseys and rolled back concession prices.
