WFUV/New York Names Eric Holland New AMD/Evening Host
|RADIO ONLINE | Monday, April 15, 2019|
After a decade at WFUV (90.7 FM)/New York as an overnight and fill-in host, air personality Eric Holland has stepped into new roles as the evening host, Monday-Thursday from 6-10pm and as Assistant Music Director. He begins his new shift on April 15. Holland takes over the evening slot from Alisa Ali, who moves to the weekday midday post from 10am-2pm. Holland succeeds Carmel Holt as Assistant MD. Holt departed WFUV in March for new ventures.
"We already know and respect Eric for his work as FUV's utility player for nearly a decade - filling in for other on air staffers, hosting interviews, and as an ace fundraiser," said WFUV Program Director Rita Houston. "But we are now so happy to have him on the team full time."
"I'm amped, jazzed, and feel extremely fortunate to be taking over the Evening Host and Assistant Music Director gig," Holland said. "There is no radio station where I'd rather be than WFUV. We play an inimitable, adventurous mix of music in the non-commercial realm. I have tremendous respect for all the people I'll continue to work with who are dedicated to the fun and magic of this community of music and radio lovers."
Holland has long been behind the microphone at WFUV, handling shifts on the overnights and filling in on all dayparts. He's also part of the team for FUV Music Weekends on WFUV.org and HD2, and is a former host of the daily version of "The Alternate Side." He's also served as Program Director and afternoon host at KKLV Honolulu. Additionally, Holland held on-air duties in Massachusetts (WZLX, WBOS, and WAGY) and WKGB in upstate New York.
