WJFK-FM (106.7 The Fan) Washington, DC has revealed a revamped weekday programming lineup. Midday hosts Grant Paulsen and Danny Rouhier move to afternoons and will now be heard from 2-6:30pm, effective January 11. Concurrently, the Entercom Sports outlet announces air personality Pete Medhurst will serve as interim midday host.

"Grant and Danny mix the smartest and most credible sports opinion and information in Washington with their own unique personalities and humor," said Entercom/Washington, DC Senior Vice President and Market Manager Ivy Savoy-Smith. "They've built an incredible community of listeners and we're thrilled that they'll be entertaining DC sports fans on their drives home for years to come."

"This is a huge opportunity and a thrill," said Paulsen. "Like almost everybody else my age, I grew up listening to 106.7 FM and I don't take lightly what it means to host the drive-time show on such an important radio station. I'm honored to have this opportunity with Danny and can't thank our listeners enough for making this possible."

"Growing up in the Washington D.C. area, I loved 2 things: D.C. sports teams and WJFK," added Rouhier. "It is surreal to me that a local kid gets to live out his dream and talk sports in my hometown. We owe everything to our amazing listeners who have supported us over the years and it's because of them that we have this chance."

Paulsen and Rouhier have hosted "Grant and Danny" on 106.7 The Fan since January, 2014. Paulsen joined WJFK in 2009 and was named as the station's Washington Redskins beat reporter a year later. In 2014, he joined the station's midday show alongside Rouhier. He currently hosts pre- and post-game coverage for Washington Capitals games on NBC Sports Washington and writes a regular column for The Athletic. Rouhier joined 106.7 The Fan in 2009 as an on-air contributor before expanding his role to a full-time host in 2010. He has served as midday co-host since 2011.
