RVPP/SOUTH FLORIDA DAVE DENVER told ALL ACCESS, "DAN's an exciting programmer. We love his promotional mind and passion for the format.

We think he's going to bring all that programming expertise to our successful Y100 brand for the youthtful culture of SOUTH FLORIDA."
MASON, who is about to trade in his studio tan for a real one, commented to ALL ACCESS, "It's an honor and privilege to be part of one of the most legendary Top 40 stations in America. This is my dream job and I look forward to working alongside DAVE DENVER and (RVP/GM) MIKE CRUSHAM to make an already great station even greater."
