Ty Bentli Takes Over Mornings At 92.3 Now/New York
June 28, 2012
Ty Bentli is the new morning host at CBS Radio CHR WXRK (92.3 Now)/New York, taking over from Nick Cannon, who stepped down earlier this year following his health troubles. Bentli most recent spent two years hosting afternoons at Hot AC KBIG (104.3 MYfm)/Los Angeles, before exiting last month. Bentli's first day on the job will be next Thursday, July 5.
"Ty is truly a unique personality, with the rare, innate ability to engage and connect with an individual through the radio. There is an ease and familiarity about him, even for a first time listener, and yet he maintains an invigorating dynamism that will be refreshing for New Yorkers to wake up with," says 92.3 Now PD Rick Gillette.
Bentli adds, "I’ve been extremely fortunate to enjoy success in the greatest markets in radio and with some of the best programmers in this biz…and it’s almost impossible for me to comprehend that I now will be waking up in the GREATEST City in the world. I can’t explain how excited I am to be setting my alarm for six hours earlier than usual, in a time zone that is three hours ahead of my current internal clock. Now if you need me, I’ll be in SoHo aging in dog years."
