WTDY/Philadelphia Taps ''Coop And Casey'' for Mornings
|RADIO ONLINE | Friday, December 7, 2018|
Entercom welcomes Sean "Coop" Tabler and Casey Reed as morning hosts for Hot AC WTDY-FM (96.5 TDY) in Philadelphia. "Coop and Casey" can be heard weekdays from 6-10am. Prior to joining Entercom, "Coop" served as morning host for Country WGH-FM (97.3 The Eagle) Norfolk-Virginia Beach. "Coop" has also held on-air roles for sister stations WDZH-FM (987 The Breeze) and WYCD-FM (99.5 WYCD) Detroit, as well as KKWF-FM (100.7 The Wolf) Seattle.
The move signals a return to 96.5 TDY for Reed, who held midday and afternoon host roles at the station (then WIOQ-FM) from 2005-2014. She most recently served as Music Director and night drive host for WIOQ-FM (Q102) Philadelphia.
"We are so excited to bring Coop to Philly and to welcome Casey back to the 96.5 TDY family," said Entercom Philadelphia Senior VP/Market Manager David Yadgaroff. "Together, their focus on all things Philadelphia, along with their infectious energy is just what WTDY's listeners are looking for in the morning."
"I am beyond thrilled to be a part of the incredible Entercom team in Philly," said Coop. "I've been looking forward to working with Shelly Easton [Program Director, Entercom Philadelphia] and soak up her wealth of knowledge and talent. I can't thank David Yadgaroff enough for allowing me the opportunity to work at TDY and I am absolutely honored to be a part of a team with Casey Reed. Her talent, hard work and dedication to Philly are unmatched."
"I can't describe how it feels to have come full circle and be back at 96.5 where I started my on-air career," added Tabler. "Shelly Easton is second to none when it comes to leadership, so it's an honor to be working with her again as well as with David Yadgaroff and everyone at Entercom in my hometown. Teaming with Sean is an absolute pleasure. I doubt there's another morning talent as hard-working, forward-thinking and humble as he is."
