Jack Diamond is named morning host at Lincoln Financial Media AC WLYF (101.5 Lite FM)/Miami. Diamond recently exited Hot AC WRQX/Washington, DC after two dozen years as the station's morning host. He replaces Ellen Jaffer, who segues to afternoons. Julie Guy will be Diamond's co-host in mornings.
"Jack Diamond is a master entertainer, engaging each listener over the air, in person and through all forms of interactive media," stated Rob Sidney, WLFY Director of Programming and Operations. "His experience, showmanship and passion reflect the best of what Lite FM has built over four decades. And I'm thrilled to have Jack kicking off Lite's next era of success."
"This is a reunion for Jack and me," added LFM-Miami SVP/GM Maureen Lesourd. "I brought him to D.C. and together we built one of the most successful adult-contemporary franchises in the nation. Jack's commitment to his craft and ability to relate to an audience are like none other."
"I've been excited about stations and opportunities before, but this is absolutely the best I could have asked for," said Diamond. "Teaming up with Maureen and Rob -- to say we're all on the same page is an understatement. I'm ready to do the finest work of my life in South Florida with the amazing talent at Lite FM."
