"We are thrilled to welcome Bret to Y98 and St. Louis," said Audacy St. Louis Senior VP and Market Manager Becky Domyan. "Bret has an unparalleled positive energy and passion for our business that is truly contagious and will be a tremendous addition to 'The Wake Up' team. We're equally as excited to elevate Jen Myers after 16 years of success on the Y98 morning show. Her unwavering commitment to excellence will continue to yield outstanding results on both Y98 and KEZK. Her exceptional talent in the area of music and operations will be instrumental to growing both of these iconic brands in 2021 and beyond."
"I am so excited to join Audacy as this company takes multiple media content to the next level," added Mega. "I feel honored to be part of the historic Y98 brand and can't wait to join 'The Wakeup' team and do radio that makes a difference and feels like St. Louis. I'd like to give a special thanks to Becky Domyan and Leo Baldwin for believing in me."
Mega's on-air career includes stops at KZDB in Spokane WA, KISS in Memphis, Power 96.1 in Atlanta and Hot 93.3 in Dallas.
"I'm excited for this next chapter at Y98, and feel so lucky to have been at such a heritage station for almost two decades," said Myers. "I also can't wait to finally sleep in."
Myers has been heard on Y98 for 19 years, including more than 15 on the morning show. She started her career in her hometown of Buffalo and spent two years at KSTZ in Des Moines, IA before joining Y98.
