Beasley Media Classic Rock 94.7 WCSX Detroit has hired Erin Vermeulen as Big Jim O’Brien’s new co-host.
Vermeulen joins WCSX from iHeartMedia News/Talk 640 KFI Los Angeles where she was part of the Bill Handel Morning Show. The Detroit native has also worked in the Denver and Phoenix markets as well as internationally in Cairo, Dubai, and South Africa.
She fills the void created by the exit of Trudi Daniels earlier this year.
Beasley Media Group, Inc., a subsidiary of Beasley Broadcast Group, Inc. (NASDAQ: BBGI), announces Erin Vermeulen will be joining Big Jim O’Brien as the newest member of the WCSX-FM morning team in the Motor City. She will begin her new position on Monday, July 10th, 2017.
Vermeulen, who began her career at the former 1310 WYUR in Detroit, most recently was heard on the air as a member of the Bill Handel Morning Show at KFI AM 640 in Los Angeles. Previous to that, she worked in South Africa, Dubai, Cairo, Denver and Phoenix.
“Choosing a native Detroiter with a wealth of global experience was a no-brainer for us,” said WCSX-FM Program Director Jerry Tarrants. “Erin will be a great on-air compliment and partner to Big Jim O’Brien. We’re so excited to bring this combined talent to the air waves of the Motor City.”
“I am so excited to be back home and can’t wait to wake up Motown with Big Jim,” said Vermeulen. “It is a great opportunity to join Beasley Media Group, WCSX-FM and an amazing group of talented people.”
Along with her love of radio, Erin is an intense fan of all things sports and Harley Davidson. On the weekends, she and her husband can usually be found somewhere on bikes enjoying all the beautiful things Michigan has to offer.
