KZIA (Z102.9) Introduces ''Those Girls In The Afternoon''

KZIA (Z102.9) Cedar Rapids, IA launches the "Those Girls in the Afternoon" show, pairing station veterans Destiny and Taylor. Taylor, an Anamosa native and a University of Iowa graduate who has been hosting afternoons on Z102.9 since 2021, is joined by Destiny, a Vinton native and a Kirkwood Community College graduate who previously hosted nights.

The program is not only one of the Corridor's first two-person afternoon radio shows, but it's also the first show anchored by two women in any daypart. The show will air weekdays from 3-7pm. "Those Girls in the Afternoon" is an on-air reinvention of Destiny and Taylor's popular "Girl, Can We Chat Quick?" podcast, which they've been hosting since 2021.

Destiny said, "So, you're saying I get paid to spend four hours every day with my best friend and my favorite listeners? Is this an April Fool's Day prank?"

Taylor added, "We can't both be paranoid, so I'll just be excited. When I started on the Z102.9 Street Team, I never expected to be on the air, let alone getting to host a show every day with a friend. This is great."

"Z102.9 has always had a building full of funny and talented people, like Clare and Eric on The Morning Scramble, winners of the Iowa Broadcasters of the Year Award in 2022; Lady J and now this show," said KZIA President and CEO Julie Hein. "We're proud to see how many of our staffers started at Z102.9 while in college, working under our tent at the Farmers Markets, then work their way up to prime time air staff."
