He replaces Jason Howard and Tracy Villaume in mornings.

"It's great having Randy back," said iHeartMedia Albany Area President Kristen Delaney. "He has connected with so many listeners throughout the years and has really been the heart and soul of 99.5 The River. Capital District listeners are going to love starting their day with him."
