HUBBARD Hot AC KSTP (KS95)/MINNEAPOLIS shuffles the lineup, including a new morning trio -- CRISCO, DEZ and RYAN.
PD LEIGHTON PECK tells ALL ACCESS, "CRISCO and DEZ are extremely dynamic personalities and teamed with RYAN who’s been with the morning show for six years I really feel we have a winning group of people. CRISCO has been on TWIN CITIES radio for almost 15 years. Most recently as part of our highly successful MOON and STACI show in the afternoon. CRISCO is a great guy and a tremendous personality. Listeners across the entire market know him and love him. He is just one of those guys everyone likes. DEZ has been at KS95 for about 17 years most recently doing our midday show. She is so real and sincere. She’s upbeat, friendly, and very funny. She is exactly the same on the air and off. Both DEZ and CRISCO are the types of talent that people want to meet and want to talk to. If there is ever a station event the two people listeners want to meet are DEZ and CRISCO. It’s amazing. So it only made sense to put those two great talents on our morning show. They are all friends off the air making the decision that much easier. For the last couple weeks we’ve had them together doing the morning show and it’s literally non-stop laughing. RYAN continues to lead the show and is extremely talented. He keeps the show moving forward injecting his own entertaining personality."
The station also moved DARRIN STONE into middays, leaving an opening for nights.
