|RADIO ONLINE | Wednesday, October 9, 2019|
WDRM-FM/Huntsville, AL, taps Brent "Dingo" Crank to join the "Dan and Josie Morning Show," on the iHeartMedia Country outlet from 5-10am, effective immediately. He joins morning host Dan McClain and his partner Josie Lane from WQNU-FM/Louisville, where he most recently served as the morning host. Prior to that, Dingo hosted morning shows in Phoenix, Myrtle Beach SC and Destin, FL. He began his radio career at WDRM and is a graduate of the University of South Alabama.
"I had the pleasure of working with Dingo when he was first hired at 102.1 WDRM, so I know first-hand his passion for the station, listeners and the Country music format," said iHeartMedia Huntsville Market President Carmelita Palmer. "He made such an impact here that even though he's been gone from the market for more than eight years, I continue to have listeners request that we ‘bring back Dingo.' I'm thrilled that we are able to honor their request."
"I've had a blast doing radio all over the country - I've seen some amazing things, met some wonderful people, but nothing ever compares to home," added Dingo. "It's great to be back in the Tennessee Valley and back where it all started for me on 102.1 WDRM."
"Dan and Josie have been dominating this market for years, but to add a new element like Dingo to the show puts us in a position to grow the WDRM morning show," said iHM/Huntsville Senior VP/Programming Erich West. "I know listeners will enjoy Dingo's upbeat energy and chemistry that he has with Dan and Josie."
