After announcing a move from morning drive at WKHQ/Traverse City to a new flagship, Robby and Rochelle confirm they are headed to New Jersey to anchor mornings at Press Communications Classic Rock WWZY-WBHX (107-1 The Boss). The show will air weekday mornings from 6-10am with a Saturday best of show. Additionally, Robby Bridges will assume Program Director duties. Rochelle Gagnon will take on an active role in the social media strategy and marketing of the show including their podcast. The show was previously based at WDVD Detroit and later WSHK/Portsmouth, NH.

VP of Programming Jeff Rafter said, "Morning radio in Monmouth-Ocean is highly competitive with great shows both in and outside the market. To have talent like Robby and Rochelle, along with market vet and 107.1 The Boss news anchor Dianne DeOliveira, the Boss is positioned to move ahead of the pack. WWZY is a strong station and I have every confidence that as Robby Bridges becomes the Boss of the Boss, it will grow it even stronger. This may be one of the last things I do in radio. It will be one of the best things I've done."

"We are thrilled to join a terrific media group in Press Communications and grow the unique brand of 107-1 The Boss with its killer signal reaching from Atlantic City to the Lincoln Tunnel. It's going to be fun entertaining classic rock fans in the land of Bruce, Bon Jovi and Bridgegate. Or should I say Sinatra, Snooki and The Sopranos? Thank you very much Bob McAllan and Jeff Rafter for this special opportunity," said Robby and Rochelle.

In addition to their history hosting together, Bridges is a veteran air talent and programmer who is no stranger to area with Z100, WPLJ and Q102 on his resume. He's also worked in Providence, Boston, and elsewhere spending more than a decade at Cumulus Media. Bridges will continue to serve as guest host for Scott Shannon on the True Oldies Channel.

Gagnon previously served as an air talent and Promotions Director with Cumulus, Lakes Media and as Associate Producer of iHeartMedia's Mojo in The Morning based at WKQI/Detroit.
