|RADIO ONLINE | Friday, February 1, 2019|
Cumulus will launch The Afentra (Show) in Kansas City on Thursday, February 7th on X105.1/KCJK-FM. Airing weekdays from 3pm-8pm, Afentra will combine her legendary quick wit with her extensive Alternative music expertise and authentic connection to Kansas City's Alternative fans and community. Afentra was previously on-air at Kansas City's KRBZ "The Buzz" as the highly-rated morning show host of Afentra's Big Fat Morning Buzz, a key component in the success of the station since 2003.
"X105.1 didnʼt just say they wanted me, they showed me," said Afentra. "Iʼm not just talking monetarily. Wanting me, my thoughts and my experience - that speaks to my soul, matching their words with actions. I'm rested, excited, and ready to win!"
Mike McVay, Executive Vice President, Content & Programming, CUMULUS MEDIA and Westwood One, said, "The opportunity to bring Afentra to the Cumulus KC cluster was one we simply couldn't pass up. A talent with her skills, experience and market heritage is a rare find. We are excited to have her join our team."
Mike O'Reilly, Program Director, KCJK 105.1, added, "Sometimes in a lineup strategy you get lucky and make a big splash. Adding Afentra to X105. 1 is more along the lines of a tidal wave for Kansas City Alternative! Afternoons is the ideal daypart for The Afentra (Show) on X105.1, and for her next chapter of success."
Donna Baker, Regional Vice President, Cumulus Midwest Region, added, "Afentra has the gift of observing life in a manner that is real, whether hilarious or poignant, and sharing that in a way that truly connects. Combined with her passion for music, artists, and community, The Afentra (Show) ignites a new world of success for the audience and advertisers on KCJK, X105.1. "
