"The Todd Show" Launches on WPLJ
February 24, 2014

The Todd Show debuted this morning on Hot AC WPLJ/New York, marking the start of a new era following the historic 23-year run of The Big Show ­– with Todd Pettengill now the sole host of the 6-10 a.m. timeslot.

"The Todd Show is the natural progression for WPLJ and Pettengill. He is one of the most talented people that I have met in this business and I am proud to be working with him as a part of PLJ’s re-birth,” said Kim Bryant, Cumulus-New York VP/Market Manager.

“I’m beyond excited to anchor a live and local morning show in the number one radio market in the world,” said Pettengill. “Thank you to Governor Chris Christie for giving me my own lane on my commute in from New Jersey and to Mayor Bill de Blasio for allowing me to follow his caravan to get me to the studio quickly.”

Before Pettengill became a part of New York radio history, he honed his skills in the Albany, New York combo WPTR/WFLY where he hosted the morning show and held the titles of PD, OM and VP of Programming.

In August 1991, Pettengill joined the air staff of WPLJ-FM as morning show co-host and has since been named Billboard Magazine's "Air Personality of the Year” five times and Radio and Records Magazine’s “Major Market Air Personality of the Year” six times. He has won five New York “AIR AWARDS” and was also awarded an Emmy for his work on the NBC TV show, TV NATION.

For four years (1993-1997) Pettengill hosted several internationally syndicated television shows for the World Wrestling Federation, including “WWF Mania,” “WWF Action Zone,” “WWF Superstars” and “WWF Challenge.” Over fifteen million people saw him in over one hundred and fifty countries each week. Pettengill also hosted the WWF “Countdown Show,” a live thirty minute broadcast on the TV Guide channel that preceded each monthly PPV and he appeared on the first ever broadcast of “Monday Night Raw.”

Pettengill is the CEO/Founder of Pettengill Productions, Inc. (established in 1993), which creates original television and film content for media outlets worldwide. Additionally, Pettengill is the host of the American version of “Come Dine With Me” on Lifetime.

Pettengill will be joined on-air by long time Executive Producer/Spiritual Adviser Joe “Monk” Pardavila, Cooper Lawrence, Anne Marie Leamy, Sheila Cichon Watko, Bill Fitzpatrick and Meatballs.
