Sarah Lee Owensby, morning show co-host at CHR WXRK/New York, heads south to Tampa to join Rhythmic WLLD (WiLD 94.1)'s Orlando and The Freakshow. Also joining the show is Davy Rolando, who is promoted at WiLD to a member of the show. Sarah Lee says, "Ever since meeting Orlando, I've wanted to work with him and all of the things that I've read about WiLD 94-1 made me determined to join this team. I'm so excited." Rolando adds, "All my friends that have real jobs, will now hear me on the show that we grew up listening to, and it's blowing my mind. I always imagined working my way up at WiLD 94-1 someday, but never imagined that it would be on Orlando & The Freakshow. This actually means I might get to talk to President Obama! This is a lot to take in."
