WCBS-FM/New York midday host Race Taylor inks a contract extension with Audacy Classic Hits outlet. He'll continue to be heard weekdays from 10am-3pm ET as he rings in 25 years on the air in New York City. Taylor joined WCBS-FM in 2019 after spending nearly 20 years at WPLJ-FM (95.5 PLJ). He also spent several years at KDMX-FM (The New Mix 102.9) in Dallas and nearly a decade at WKRQ-FM (Q102) in Cincinnati.

"It's been incredible to work alongside Race and watch him make meaningful relationships throughout the Tri-State for decades," said WCBS-FM Brand Manager and morning co-host John Foxx. "He is a one-of-a-kind talent, and we're thrilled to create many more memories with him as he continues to entertain our loyal listeners."

"I am elated to remain at Audacy surrounded by the infectious sound of these legendary stations and celebrate 25 years in New York City," added Taylor. "The first note of thanks belongs to my wife, Patty, whose dedication to our family has been the very foundation of any success that has found me. I'm also grateful to Workhouse Media's John McConnell for the friendship and guidance that has helped me navigate my career. I'm looking forward to the journey ahead supported by Chris Oliviero, Jim Ryan, John Foxx and the Audacy team in New York, who have made this achievement more special than I ever imagined."
