Gray and Green Show Comes to 105.3 HOT FM/Grand Rapids


Cumulus Media will debut a new morning show, "The Gray and Green Show" on 105.3 HOT FM/WHTS-FM in Grand Rapids on Monday, August 26th. Featuring high-profile media personalities Rachael Gray and Jackie Green, it will be the first and only morning radio show in West Michigan presented by two female hosts. The program will air weekdays on 105.3 HOT FM from 6am-10am.

Rachael Gray has been waking up West Michigan for the past seven years at 105.3 HOT FM, and started her career hosting mornings at WBTI in Port Huron, MI. Rachael's fierce sense of humor is only upstaged by her love of pop culture. If it matters, she'll tell you! She's a mom of two and has no problem sharing ALL of what that entails. Rachael is not only a strong communicator, but is also a leader in West Michigan non-profit work. She is a tireless advocate of organizations supporting women and mothers. Conversely, Rachael doesn't take herself too seriously. In what can be a divisive world, Rachael's voice breaks through to bring an audience together one laugh at a time.

If it's happening in West Michigan, Jackie Green is part of it all. Jackie started her broadcast career hosting nights and middays at WGRD-FM before seguing to television as a Fox 17 feature reporter for the "On the Scene with Jackie Green" segment. In 2016, Jackie moved back to radio by entertaining the drive home crowd from 3pm-7pm on 105.3 HOT FM. A working mom and activist, Jackie still finds time to run marathons and volunteers at Children's Hospital by entertaining the kids dressed as Wonder Woman, Captain Marvel and other favorite costume characters. Jackie has been able to spread her advocacy for female empowerment in a unique forum by participating in pageants throughout the country. Her great attitude is infectious as is her warmth and generous spirit.

"We are so excited to present this one-of-a-kind show to the West Michigan audience!" said Lori Bennett, Operations Manager, Cumulus West Michigan, and Program Director of 105.3 HOT FM. "Rachael and Jackie are two of the most dynamic personalities I've ever worked with and their emotional connection as part of the West Michigan community is unmatched. Sure, they're about "girl power", but actually, it's "people power"."

"I have never been more thrilled in my entire career," said Gray. "It's an exciting time for our industry, and I feel beyond grateful that I get to sit ‘across the board' from one of my closest friends, who also happens to be an amazing woman."

"Since I began in radio, my dream was to be part of a morning show," added Green. "I'm so happy to make the move to work with Rachael, who's not only an incredible talent but a great friend."
