Entercom CHR “Live 101.5” KALV Phoenix has announced the addition of midday host Jeana Shepard and promotions assistant Karla Hernandez to its morning show along side ‘Joey Boy’ Rodriguez and Aneesh Minaj.
Shepard will continue to host middays in addition to the morning show. The pair replace Natasha Castles on the morning show as she will focus exclusively on her afternoon show.
Entercom, the #1 creator of live, original, local audio content in the United States, today announced Jeana Shepard and Karla Hernandez as morning show co-hosts for LIVE 101.5 (KALV-FM) in Phoenix. Shepard and Hernandez will join current hosts Joey Boy and Aneesh on “The Morning Mess,” weekdays from 5:30 a.m. to 10:00 a.m. MT.
“We are thrilled to be taking ‘The Morning Mess’ brand to even greater heights with the addition of Jeana and Karla to the team,” said Dave Pugh, Senior Vice President and Market Manager, Entercom Phoenix. “They are a welcome addition to Phoenix mornings and we look forward to them connecting with our listeners daily.”
“It’s an honor and privilege to work with people as talented, creative and hard-working as the group behind LIVE 101.5,” said Shepard. “I can’t imagine a better way to kick off 2019. This show has that special electric spark that Phoenix is going to feel.”
In addition to co-hosting LIVE 101.5’s morning show, Shepard will continue in her current role as host of the station’s midday drive, a position she assumed in 2016.
“I am beyond excited for this promotion and the opportunity to be a part of such a fun and supportive team,” said Hernandez. “This year is going to be full of firsts for me and I’m ready for the challenge. I look forward to interacting with Phoenix listeners and being a part of their morning routine.”
