iHeartMedia’s 104.1 The Edge, Albuquerque’s Alternative, has announced the addition of The Woody Show to the station’s weekday morning lineup. Effective August 25, the top-rated morning show will air in the Monday through Friday, 5 to 10 a.m. MT timeslot. Concurrently, morning personality Baxter will transition to the 2 to 6 p.m. MT timeslot.

The Woody Show is highly-interactive, socially-engaging appointment radio. Featuring Woody, along with co-hosts Ravey, Greg Gory, Menace and Sebas, The Woody Show is described by listeners as “authentic,” “raw,” “unapologetic,” and “recess/happy hour on the radio.” In 2016, the popular program was a NAB Marconi Radio Award finalist for “Major Market Personality of the Year,” and it was launched into national syndication by Premiere Networks in 2017. Fans can follow the show on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.

“Thanks to everyone at iHeartMedia Albuquerque for making this happen,” shared Woody. “Even though it’s clear to us that someone lost a bet, we are very excited to join the team at The Edge.”

“We are very excited to welcome The Woody Show to the Land of Enchantment!” added Chuck Hammond, iHeartMedia New Mexico Area President. “The tremendous amount of success he and his team have had in Los Angeles should translate very well in Albuquerque.”
