|RADIO ONLINE | Thursday, April 4, 2019|
JVC Media announces the addition of Live And Local radio veterans in morning drive at two of its Gainesville-Ocala stations. Leroy (pictured), the 15-year market veteran who has been waking up Gainesville-Ocala on Country-Rock WXUS-FM (US 102.3) will join Jenn Ryan as co-host of "The Jenn Ryan Show" on CHR WMFQ-FM (Q92.9), weekdays from 6-10am beginning Monday April 8.
Filling the vacant spot at WXUS-FM (US102.3) is veteran radio personality Barry Michaels, who will host mornings from 6-10am beginning Monday April 8. Barry has a long list of radio accomplishments including successful stops in Dallas, Orlando and Miami, just to name a few.
"I'm grateful for the opportunity to stay in North Central Florida and do what I love... waking up my friends and neighbors here," said Michaels. "US 102.3 is revolutionary -- playing Country and Southern Rock on the same station -- it's unique and the music mix means so much to this area. We're going to have a lot of fun weekday mornings. Thanks to Ben Burris, Sam Gerace, Shane Reeve, and John Caracciolo for believing in me."
Leroy added, "They told me I'd have pudding if I moved to Q92.9. Where's the pudding?" His new co-host Jenn Ryan shook her head and commented, "Mornings on Q92.9 will be a fun, strange, exciting place to be with Leroy joining The Jenn Ryan Show. Expect a topical and entertainment-based show that will get North Central Florida to work or school with laughs and tons of interaction."
JVC Media Gainesville-Ocala OM Ben Burris commented, "We are excited about the future of WMFQ and WXUS. Adding live and local jocks to both radio stations in a time where most stations around the country are subtracting jobs reiterates our commitment to this industry."
