iHeartMedia’s Elvis Duran and the Morning Show has announced Medha Gandhi will join the show on September 17 as its new co-host.
Gandhi joins the show from iHeart’s “Kiss 108” WXKS-FM Boston where she currently serves as Executive Producer and co-host of Matty in the Morning. She has also served in a similar role for WNCI Columbus’ Dave and Jimmy Show and works as a comedy writer, parody song producer and voicetracker. She is the great-granddaughter of Indian activist Mahatma Gandhi.
Gandhi fills the opening created by Bethany Watson’s departure earlier this year.
iHeartMedia, the leading audio company in America which also has a greater reach in the U.S. than any other media outlet, announced today that Medha Gandhi will join the nationally-syndicated Elvis Duran and the Morning Show as its new co-host, effective September 17, 2018. Elvis Duran and the Morning Show broadcasts weekdays from 6a to 10a.
Gandhi will join the team of the top-rated Elvis Duran and the Morning Show on WHTZ, New York’s Z100, which has experienced double-digit audience growth across multiple demos in the market in the past year, and is syndicated nationally by Premiere Networks on nearly 80 radio stations across the country. Elvis Duran and his on-air crew connect listeners with up-to-the-minute entertainment and pop culture news, hit songs, entertainment features and celebrity interviews with the biggest names in music and entertainment. The show’s programming and content is also available across various platforms including The Elvis Duran Channel on ElvisDuran.com, on iHeartRadio.com? and on iHeartRadio, making it the most-listened-to Top 40 morning show in the U.S.
“We fell in love with Gandhi within the first five minutes of meeting her,” said Duran. “When you have a show as long established as ours, it’s very important to continue to keep it fresh and in Gandhi we have found the perfect co-host to do that. I can’t wait for her to join our dysfunctional family!”
“Gandhi is a great storyteller with a dynamic personality and that’s what morning radio is all about,” said Mark Medina, Program Director for iHeartMedia’s Z100 New York. “We’re excited to welcome her to New York and the Elvis Duran and the Morning Show.”
Gandhi joins Elvis Duran and the Morning Show from iHeartMedia Boston’s WXKS – KISS 108, where she served as executive producer and co-host for Matty in the Morning. Prior to that role, she served as an on-air talent and executive producer of the Dave & Jimmy show at iHeartMedia’s WNCI, a Top 40 radio station in Columbus, Ohio.
