CINCINNATI, OH – January 4, 2024 — Cumulus Media (NASDAQ: CMLS) announces that it has appointed Jim Day as On-Air Host, Mornings, on Cincinnati Classic Hits station 103.5 WGRR-FM. Day debuts this week and can be heard Monday through Friday from 5:00am-9:00am.
Day moves from his previous on-air post at Cumulus Cincinnati sister station Warm 98.5/WRRM-FM, where he was heard in PM drive. Prior to that, he hosted mornings on Warm 98.5. He moves to mornings on WGRR-FM following the retirement of former Morning Co-Hosts Chris O’Brien and Janeen Coyle on December 22nd, after 28 years on-air. Prior to joining Cumulus Cincinnati in 2016, Day hosted mornings on WHKO-FM in Dayton, OH; on KWEN-FM in Tulsa, OK, and on WSM-FM in Nashville, TN.
Jon Laing, Vice President/Market Manager, Cumulus Cincinnati, said: “We’re thrilled to have Jim continue the tradition of great local radio in mornings on WGRR-FM. Listening to Jim on the radio is just fun. His energy and enthusiasm are contagious, and that’s what radio is all about.”
Keith Mitchell, Program Director, WGRR-FM, said: “Jim will be a great addition to the WGRR team, and he only has to move his headphones about 30 feet. While never easy to replace a long-running show, Jim will bring energy, enthusiasm, and fun to mornings.”
Jim Day said: “I’ve worked “just down the hall” from Chris and Janeen for the last seven years and never imagined I would be considered to take over mornings at WGRR. I was surprised to be asked and I’m honored to take on the challenge. But more than all of that, I wish the happily married couple an amazing retirement!”
