The run of The Regular Guys has come to an end at Cumulus Classic Rock “Rock 100.5” WNNX College Park/Atlanta.
Jason Bailey, most recently in mornings at CBS Sports “92.9 The Game” WZGC Atlanta, will join WNNX for mornings starting Monday, December 15. Then known as “Buckethead”, Bailey also worked at WTKS and WJRR Orlando and WXTB Tampa Bay.
His entrance concludes the third run of “The Regular Guys” in Atlanta. The show was led by the exiting Larry Wachs and co-hosts Southside” Steve Rickman and “Action Plan” Tim Andrews. The fourth member of the group, Eric Von Haessler was let go from the station in 2013. Wachs and Von Haessler began the Regular Guys show in Los Angeles in 1995 and first came to Atlanta to host mornings on “96 Rock” WKLS in 1998. After two runs at WKLS and sister 640 WGST and a brief show at “92.3 Free-FM” New York, the show was brought back to Cumulus to launch “Rock 100.5” in January 2008.

Scott Jameson, Corporate Program Director/Rock for Cumulus said: “Jason brings a fresh, contemporary approach. His music, sports and pop culture background will connect nicely with Atlanta’s morning commuters.”
Bailey said: “”I can’t begin to tell you how excited I am to join Rock 100.5. I moved to Atlanta with my sights set on working for Cumulus and the day has come. To have the opportunity to work with great management like Mike McVay, Greg Ausham, Scott Jameson, Troy Hanson and Rob Roberts is a talent’s dream come true. This company allows talent to excel in their careers– which is very rare nowadays. Not to mention, I get to be surrounded by some of the most talented guys and girls in the business every morning. Man, this is what it’s all about. Thanks to my new Cumulus family for the opportunity and faith, especially John Dickey. I guess crashing the Cumulus Christmas party three years ago has finally paid off. Let the good times begin!”
