Christmas came a bit early for WKTU morning host Paul ‘Cubby’ Bryant. The veteran air personality won a healthy contract extension, keeping him as morning host at the Clear Channel station through 2016–a rare feat in today’s economy. He hosts KTU Mornings with Cubby and features sidekick and traffic reporter Cindy Vero.
Bryant took over a.m. drive in 2008. Prior to that, Bryant co-host the syndicated morning show with Whoopi Goldberg from 2006 to 2008. It was heard on ‘KTU until November 2007.
Bryant first gained popularity in New York at sister station Z100/WHTZ as afternoon jock from 1996 to 2006.
“I’m beyond excited to work with people I love on and off the air for many more years to come,” Bryant says. “Our morning show has the best listeners ever and they are the reason for our success. It’s because of them I get excited each morning to get up early and hit the airwaves.”
Bryant has established himself as a premier personality, winning numerous awards including the New York Metro A.I.R. Award for Best Afternoon Show.
“Personalities like Cubby are one in a million. Listeners fall in love with him from the moment they tune in, and he is respected by his peers for his incredible talent,” says Rob Miller, WKTU program director. “He’s a good person and I’m proud to have him on ‘KTU’s team to help lead the station to continued success.”
KTU Mornings with Cubby is currently one of the top-rated morning shows in the market, and was ranked number two among Adults 25 to 54 in the latest November Arbitron ratings book.
