Now the real fun begins!
Cumulus has announced its midday and afternoon jocks for NASH FM 94.7, New York’s first Country format in more than 15 years.
Beginning Monday, Kelly Ford will be heard from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m., while Jesse Addy follows from 3 to 7 p.m.
The station debuted last month, and Cumulus quickly stated that the NASH name will be branded nationally.
Ford joins NASH FM from Denver where she woke up Country listeners for 20 years. She has won best Major Market Radio Personality three times from the Country Music Awards and once from the Academy of Country Music Awards as well as a prestigious Marconi Award for Excellence from the National Association of Broadcasters.
“After over 20 years in Denver, it’s exciting to start a new chapter of my career in New York, the epicenter of everything. I am thrilled to be part of the historic launch of NASH FM. I am so grateful to be given such an amazing opportunity,” Ford said.
Addy, who joins NASH FM from afternoon drive in Detroit, said, “Hopefully this speechless thing wears off soon or my run at NASH FM will be short-lived! I have a lot of thank you phone calls to make, because it takes a village of PDs and mentors for this to happen. I’m so excited to make America’s busiest afternoon commute a little less stressful on America’s Country Station NASH FM 94.7.”
