CLEAR CHANNEL AC WALK/LONG ISLAND has added KELLY DYSON to its "PM Drive with PARKER" show. DYSON will partner with PARKER weekdays from 6-10p. PARKER remains in his current 3-10p shift. DYSON joined the WALK family earlier this year as a weekend personality, and was officially welcomed to her new, full-time role by WALK VP/Marketing Manager JIM CONDRON and WALK PD PATRICK SHEA.
"It’s such a pleasure to watch KELLY grow at WALK, and the combination of PARKER and KELLY will help to ensure continued growth for our afternoon-drive audience for years to come," said CONDRON.
SHEA is also confident about his new evening combo. "They’re just the right blend of personalities to keep people happy on the drive home. They have a lot of fun together and they draw in listeners," said SHEA. "Matching these two just makes sense when you hear them interact."
PARKER and KELLY discovered their shared sense of lunacy and love of radio while working weekends at WALK. "I love her!" said PARKER. "Being back-to-back with KELLY on the weekends gave us a chance to talk and get to get to know each other, and I know adding her to the show will have us really connecting with listeners every day. Pretty sweet!"
DYSON added, "Imagine working with your favorite people, laughing all day and doing what you love. Working for WALK 97.5 is an absolute dream come true."
