iHeartMedia announced today that Todd “Carson” Zarnitz has been named the Afternoon Drive personality for Z100, Portland’s No. 1 Hit Music Station, and Power 93.3, Seattle’s New No. 1 For Hit Music, effective February 15.
iHeartMedia has massive consumer reach and influence across multiple platforms and delivers more live programming than any other media company. Carson will make local listeners’ commutes more enjoyable with his fresh take on pop culture and his unique sense of humor while playing hit music from popular artists.
“We are excited to add Carson to our teams here in Portland and Seattle,” said Tim Herbster, Senior Vice President of Programming of the Pacific Northwest Region for iHeartMedia. “His passion, enthusiasm and wealth of experience will be a great addition to help us grow Z100 and Power 93.3.”
Carson served as the weekend personality at WHTZ in New York City, WIOQ in Philadelphia and WIHT in Washington, D.C. He also worked as an on air personality for radio stations in Tampa, Orlando and Houston, and worked for more as an Account Executive.
“I couldn’t be happier that Carson has decided to join us in dominating the northwest between Portland and Seattle. This unique position will be well served by his experience, passion and drive – literally because he’ll be spending a lot of time commuting between the two markets!” Justin Riley, Program Director for Power 93.3.
