Looking Back At Scott Shannon’s Impact & Legacy

It’s Time To Wake Up… With those words Michael Scott Shannon changed the course of radio, not just in New York but throughout the world. As Z100 charged “from worst to first” led by Shannon as not only their Program Director but leader of the “Z Morning Zoo”, it changed the shape of Top 40 and Morning Radio forever.
