WIXX-FM/Green Bay Adds Daniel Amsden to Afternoons

CHR WIXX-FM/Green Bay adds Daniel Amsden, best known as "Huggie." He previously aired at KVEG/Las Vegas, KSAS/Boise, KBFF/Portland and KQMV/Seattle. Being an Illinois native, this move brings him closer to his family. "Huggie" joins the WIXX team on June 20, taking over the PM Drive show. He replaces 25-year WIXX staffer Otis Day, who left to pursue a postion out of radio. Current PM Drive host Fife moves to middays.

"After a nationwide search with some very talented candidates, we are extremely excited about introducing 'Huggie' to the listeners of Northeast Wisconsin," said WIXX Brand Manager Corey Carter. "His unique personality, social media and imaging skills are top-notch. He always puts the listeners first, which is one of the reasons WIXX has been so successful for so long -- he'll fit in great."

"It's time for me to take the Lambeau Leap to Green Bay. Midwest Communications is a killer company and WIXX is a really dope station," added Huggie. "I'm geek'd to crack the mic."

Upon his arrival, WIXX will immediately begin the "Summer of 10k Hugs" campaign where Huggie will give hugs (and get selfies with) 10,000 WIXX fans.
