McGowan said, "I’d like to thank John Dickey, Mike McVay, Ann McManus and Danny Lyons for this great opportunity. I really look forward to being part of WEBE 108’s continued success!"

Jay Michaels was most recently with the True Oldies Channel. Prior to that, he was Morning Host for Cumulus’ WFAS/Westchester, NY for two decades, from 1993 through 2013. While at WFAS, Michaels was honored for his work with the Best of Westchester Award. He was also On Air/Production Director of WYNY/New York City for six years.

Lyons said, "We are thrilled to welcome Jay Michaels to the WEBE family and I know our listeners will enjoy his warmth and wit every morning as he wakes up WEBE-land!"
 
McManus added, "Jay is a legendary morning man and we are very fortunate to have him on our winning team of broadcast professionals."
