Entercom Rhythmic AC “Hot 103.7” KHTP Seattle has begun staffing up.
Candy & Potter, most recently at Country “Q106.3” WWQM Madison, WI will return to the Seattle market to host mornings beginning on January 22, 2014. The duo began their radio career at CHR “106.1 Kiss-FM” KBKS Seattle and also hosted mornings at CBS’ Country 94.1 KMPS along with stations in Albany and Charlotte.
KHTP has also hired Kristin The Island Girl for middays. Kristin previously hosted middays at KBKS from 2001 to 2009.
The press release announcing the hiring of Candy & Potter follows:
Entercom Seattle proudly welcomes Candy & Potter to anchor the morning show for The New HOT 103.7 (KHTP). The announcement is a homecoming for the pair, as both members of this talented duo were raised in the Seattle area and began their radio careers here.
Candy & Potter come to The New HOT 103.7 fresh from ratings success in Madison, WI, where they were #1 among 25-54 adults. The team previously worked in Charlotte, NC and Albany, NY after launching their radio journey at 106.1 KISS FM in Seattle under now HOT 103.7 Program Director Mike Preston.
“Candy & Potter are spot-on for HOT103.7’s audience. Pop culture sensibilities combined with a passion for their hometown and a love of the music makes this show highly topical and interactive,” said Mike Preston, HOT 103.7 Program Director. “Starting on January 22nd, listeners will wake up to Candy & Potter’s relentless pursuit of the most interesting and funny topics of the day with a show that’s little bit like Facebook on radio.”
Candy remarked, “I would like to take this opportunity to publicly call out Preston who pretty much stole my phone and jacked my playlist for HOT. I cannot wait to start waking up Seattle in January.” Potter went on to say, “The day HOT 103.7 signed on, it immediately became one of my favorite stations in America. The fact that I get to work there AND it’s in my hometown is surreal. I can’t wait to get started!”
