WAAF/Boston Wakeup Star Greg Hill Signs New Deal

ENTERCOM Active Rock WAAF/BOSTON veteran morning host GREG HILL has signed a new, long-term contract that will keep him employed at the station for the balance of his career. HILL, who started at the heritage rock station as the promotion coordinator in 1986, has been hosting the HILL-MAN MORNING SHOW for 26 consecutive years. This new agreement ensures HILL, partners LYNDON BYERS and DANIELLE MURR and producer ROB STEVENS will anchor the WAAF personality line-up well into the future.
“Our job is to minimize the misery our listeners feel when waking up each morning so they have a good laugh by the time they get to work,” HILL said. “I am honored to work for a company like ENTERCOM that, in this day and age, continues to value the contributions of their employees and was as eager as I was to extend our relationship. The value they put on personality radio is unique in our industry. I'm still amazed I get to do this every morning, and the fact that I will continue on the same station, in the same market, for more than 30 years is special. I still think there may be some sort of internal error on their part, but I'm hoping they don't figure it out for a while.”
VP/Market Manager PHIL ZACHARY says he could not envision WAAF without HILL. “WAAF and GREG have been inextricably connected for more than three decades,” he said. “Not only does the program deliver leading ratings across multiple NEW ENGLAND markets, but Greg is one of the best sales ambassadors we have. If we didn’t get this deal done, I’d be out of work!”
