TUCSON, AZ – JANUARY 17, 2023 — Cumulus Media (NASDAQ: CMLS) announces that it has named a new Midday On-Air Host for Tucson Country radio station, KiiM FM 99.5/KIIM-FM, and Classic Hip-Hop station, 97.5 The Vibe/KSZR-FM. Bobbi Pereyda moves from Middays on 97.5 The Vibe to her new on-air home as On-Air Host, Middays, on KiiM FM 99.5. Krystal Pino, who previously hosted Middays on KiiM FM 99.5, now hosts Middays on 97.5 The Vibe, moving from full-time to part-time duties with Cumulus Tucson.
Buzz Jackson, Program Director, KiiM FM 99.5 and 97.5 The Vibe, said: “I get the best of both worlds! I get to keep Krystal on 97.5 The Vibe and hand the keys to the midday show on KIIM to Bobbi, who has proven herself on the Vibe for the past year.”
Bobbi Pereyda commented: “As someone who was glued to the radio as a kid, getting the opportunity to be on The Vibe was a blessing and an incredible learning experience that opened a lot of doors. Little did I know that the door would be right across the hall at the biggest radio station in town, KiiM-FM 99.5. I’m excited and grateful that I get to continue my radio career in my hometown with listeners and a team that feels like family.”
Krystal Pino remarked: “I am grateful to be a part of a company that values my show and experience. I am honored to say I worked for the legendary KiiM FM and made lifelong friends with the listeners. The next chapter begins with 97.5 the Vibe. The Vibe allows me to experience nostalgia with the music I grew up trying to record off the radio and put on my pager. So Tucson – let’s have fun!”
