Billy Cova Joins Hot 107.9 Fort Wayne For Nights
Adams Radio CHR “Hot 107.9” WJFX New Haven/Fort Wayne IN has announced the addition of Billy Cova for night host duties.
Cova, who uses just his last name on-air, had been hosting evenings at Entercom’s “98.7 Amp Radio” WDZH Detroit until its flip to Soft AC last year.
Former evening host Patrick Grey moves to part-time status as he has taken a full time position at Parkview Health in Fort Wayne.
Billy Cova (On-air as “Cova”) has been named the new evening host (7pm-Midnight) for market-leading Top 40 station, WJFX (HOT 1079).
Cova was previously the night host at Entercom’s WDZH (then-98.7 AMP Radio) Detroit, MI. Cova became a free agent when WDZH changed format in November from Top 40 to Soft Adult Contemporary.
HOT 1079 Brand Manager Robbie Mack says, “We received a lot of great submissions for nights. There were some really solid candidates out there, but Cova’s personality and experience stood out. He’s a naturally funny and entertaining guy and he’s just what we need to stay on top at night.”
Cova says, “I’m so excited to join the team at HOT! This station is a staple in Fort Wayne and I can’t wait to engage with the community. Thanks to (Brand Manager) Robbie Mack and (VP/General Manager) Kevin Musselman for the opportunity.”
The night show opening is created as former night host Patrick Grey exits full-time radio for a career at Parkview Health in Fort Wayne. Robbie says “I’m glad to say Patrick is also sticking around and will be on the air every weekend. I can’t thank him enough for all of the contributions he has made to HOT over the years.”
