Adams Radio CHR “Hot 107.9” WJFX New Haven/Fort Wayne IN has hired Patrick Grey to host nights starting Wednesday, May 11.
Grey joins WJFX from Mainestream Media Rhythmic CHR “Hot 104.7” WHTP Portland ME where he spent three years in nights and then mornings. He began his career at WJFX in 2011 as an intern before moving up to part-time prior to his move to WHTP.
The addition of Grey will enable Travis Walker to shift to middays at sister AC “Soft Rock 103.9” WWFW Fort Wayne. Walker replaces WJFX/WWFW Program Director Robbie Mack in that midday slot allowing Mack to focus on those duties and afternoons on WJFX.
On-air personality Patrick Grey has been tapped for nights on CHR/Pop (Top 40) station WJFX (HOT 107.9).
Patrick began his broadcast career at HOT 107.9 in 2011 as a Promotions intern, eventually working his way up to a part-time on-air position. He has spent the past 3 years with Mainestream Media CHR/Rhythmic WHTP (HOT 104.7) in the Portland, ME market, where he did nights, and later, morning drive. ??
