Cumulus Rhythmic CHR 97.7 KWIN Lodi/Stockton and 98.3 KWNN Turlock/Modesto CA have promoted midday host Nikki Blades to morning co-host.
Blades joined KWIN/KWNN at the start of this year after working as a model and social media personality. She fills the morning opening created by Amanda King’s departure at the end of 2017 after 19 years in the slot alongside Lucas.
Cumulus Media announces that it has named radio personality Nikki Blades as Co-Host of The Morning Block Party on Top 40/Rhythmic station KWIN-FM in Stockton-Modesto, CA. Blades joins Co-Host Lucas on the popular morning show, which airs weekdays from 6am-10am on 97.7/98.3 KWIN-FM. Blades moves to Mornings from the Middays slot on KWIN-FM, a position she has held since January of this year. A social media influencer with over 120,000 Instagram followers, Blades began her career as a professional model who was featured in Maxim magazine and earlier this year, appeared on MTV’s Wild ‘N Out with Nick Cannon.
Danial “Jiggy” Diaz, Program Director, KWIN/KWNN, said: “We are very excited for today. It’s not very often you find someone who fits the mold of the brand so well and is also destined for greatness. Nikki Blades is by far the next big talent on the West Coast and I’m so excited for her to take the next step here at KWIN!”
Blades said: “I am beyond excited to be the new co-host on the Morning Block Party with Lucas on KWIN! Thank you so much to my PD Jiggy for giving me a chance to prove my talent and express myself! I feel truly blessed to be able to do what I love every day.”
