Bethany Watson Joins Elvis Duran And The Morning Show

Bethany Watson
Clear Channel CHR WHTZ (Z100)/New York announced this morning that Bethany Watson will join the Elvis Duran and The Morning Show as its new cohost. Beginning this Monday, August 13, listeners will hear Watson make her debut alongside Duran on New York’s Z100 and more than 40 other radio stations across the country.

Watson was born in Wisconsin and began her entertainment career at the University of Minnesota, where she studied theater and improvisational comedy. After finding herself at a desk job post-graduation, she decided to reach out to her favorite local radio show, The Dave Ryan in the Morning Show on 101.3 KDWB in Minneapolis, to apply for a vacant co-host position. Watson landed the job and co-hosted alongside Ryan for more than four years.

"After an exhausting worldwide search, we found her!  Bethany brings lots of baggage, but the kind of baggage that makes for a fun, playful and thoughtful co-host," said Duran. "We can't wait to introduce her to our listeners Monday morning."

"Bethany has great chemistry with Elvis and the entire Morning Show, which will definitely entertain and engage listeners every morning," said Z100 PD Sharon Dastur. "After meeting her for the first time, we could tell within the first five minutes that she'd be a perfect fit for the show. We are thrilled to have Bethany join the team."

Watson replaces Carolina Bermudez, who left the Morning Show this spring to co-host Live From The Couch, airing weekdays from 7-9 a.m. on WLNY-TV.
