What do you do when the guys from @fbhwshow offer you a job on their insanely funny morning show? You say HELL YES. You prepare to move from a city you’ve been in for 10 years to a city you’ve only spent a few days in. You take this leap of faith because you know it’s about to be the best decision you could make for your career. You trust your gut and follow your intuition, right?? …At least that’s what I did and what I’ve been telling myself the last few weeks. Ahhh! I can’t believe I get to join these talented fellas on their syndicated morning show. I’ve never done anything like this before and I can’t believe I’m moving. I can’t believe next Wednesday will be my last night living in Atlanta before I hit the road and move to Grand Rapids, Michigan. I can’t believe the road my radio career has lead me down and I can’t believe it’s all because @jennhobby walked into a boutique I was working at, thought I was funny, and gave me a chance ????? I can’t thank you enough for opening this door for me all those years ago, Jenn! And most importantly I can’t thank YOU (yea, YOU) enough for supporting me, laughing with me, and continuing to follow me on this incredible journey. I am so very thankful for YOU! ? ? ?? HAPPY CHOOSE-DAY!
Craven Jacoby has announced he will be stepping down as Program Director/morning host of Mifflin County Communications Rock “Chix 105.5” WCHX Lewistown PA and PD of Classic Hits “Big 100.3” 920 WKVA/100.3 W262DO Lewistown at the end of this week.
Craven has been with the stations since August 2017 after working at Citadel Harrisburg and Radio Carlisle. He will be announcing his new destination in the near future.
Sun & Fun Media’s new Key Networks syndication unit has announced its first program. Key will distribute a daily 15 minute commentary from disgraced former Fox News Channel host Bill O’Reilly. O’Reilly previously hosted a daily two hour talk show distributed by Fox News and Westwood One from 2002-2009.
Key Networks, a next generation syndication company serving the radio industry, announces that it will syndicate a new 15-minute daily radio program, “The O’Reilly Update”, starring former cable news personality and bestselling author Bill O’Reilly. “The O’Reilly Update” cuts through the anonymous sources and phony stories dominating today’s news cycle and brings O’Reilly’s trademark “no spin” analysis to listeners across the U.S. in a high-impact format made for appointment listening. “The O’Reilly Update” marks a return to broadcast radio for O’Reilly, who hosted the nationally syndicated show, “The Radio Factor”, from 2002-2009.
Key Networks delivers “The O’Reilly Update” to stations of all formats and market sizes every weekday beginning at 11:30am EST. All advertising is included, with no additional barter units and 2 minutes of local avails in the feature.
Bill O’Reilly said: “More than ever before, Americans need accurate information and honest news analysis in order to make intelligent decisions. It is all about protecting yourself and your family. The daily O’Reilly Update will arm you with facts, and provide opinion based on those facts. Can’t wait to get started.”
Rob Koblasz, Chief Executive Officer, Key Networks, said: “Americans need straight talk now more than ever before. We are excited to make this 15-minute daily program available to radio stations across the U.S. The O’Reilly Update is tune-in listening at its best.”
Dennis Green, Chief Revenue Officer, Key Networks, said: “On the Mount Rushmore of spoken word talent you must include Bill O’Reilly. It’s an honor to bring Bill back to radio to deliver appointment listening and revenue opportunities for affiliate stations in a unique format. Attention stations: this program will provide the key (network) to your success!”
“The O’Reilly Update” will debut on Monday, April 29, 2019.
