HOUSTON, TX, November 12, 2019 – Cumulus Media announces that it has entered into a multi-year agreement with award-winning Houston on-air personalities Roula Christie, Ryan Chase, Eric Rowe, and Kevin England. Roula and Ryan are Co-Hosts of 104.1 KRBE-FM’s long-running morning radio show, “The Roula and Ryan Show”, which airs weekdays from 6:00am-10:00am.
Leslie Whittle, Vice President, Hot AC, Cumulus Media, and Program Director, 104.1 KRBE-FM, said: “Each day our listeners wake up to laughter, will learn something, and could shed a tear or two, but one thing you can count on is that Roula, Ryan, Eric and Special K are never boring. They have experienced many personal milestones the past 13 years, which I’ve been proud to witness. The Roula and Ryan Show has also celebrated our beloved city’s accomplishments and milestones, and has gotten Houston through some tragedies as well. I’m honored to be able to work with this great team for another 5 years!”
Roula and Ryan said: “We are beyond excited to continue this journey with KRBE and Cumulus Radio! It’s rare to have a team with such camaraderie and chemistry from the top of corporate down to the players on the show! Thank you so much to Mary Berner, Dave Milner, Dan Bennett, Alex Cadelago, Leslie Whittle, and Doug Hamand for creating a workplace that really feels like family and home. A special thank you to our representative Paul Anderson from Workhouse Media for his continuous hard work and support! The Roula and Ryan Show is the Heartbeat of Houston and we look forward to keeping that heartbeat going for a long time.”
