Brand Manager B.J. DeGroot said, "We are extremely excited to add Ben to the WHBY and Woodward Radio Group team. His engaging personality and passion for radio is the perfect recipe for a dynamic show. Ben's exactly the culture fit WRG strives for and will be a tremendous addition to an award winning team."

Cominos added, "I'm thrilled for the opportunity to work for one of the oldest talk stations in the entire country. The tradition at WHBY mixed with its engagement and involvement with the local community is what brought me to this city. I can't wait to get this show on the road, learn about the area, and try my best to bring an entertaining and interesting show to our listeners, and if we're lucky, enact some positive change in the area."

The addition of "Outside the Box" and "Your News Now on WHBY" expands live local programming to 10 hours each weekday from 5am-6pm.
