Cumulus Taps Zannie K. As APD/Afternoon Drive Host For WGVX/Minneapolis
February 2, 2017

Cumulus Media has appointed programming and on-air veteran Zannie K. as Assistant Program Director and Afternoon Drive Host for Classic Hip Hop station, WGVK (105 The Vibe) in Minneapolis, MN. His show debuted on Monday, January 30, 2017, and airs weekdays from 4PM-7PM. He also hosts “Zannie K’s Throwback Theory” on 105 The Vibe on Saturday nights at 10PM. In addition, Zannie will host the Sunday, Midday show for Westwood One's 24/7 AC, Hot AC and Top 40 affiliates across the U.S.

This marks a return to the Twin Cities for Zannie, who served two tours of duty on-air at both KDWB and the former KTTB (B96) for four and seven years, respectively. His other stops include: three years as Assistant Program Director/Music Director at iHeartMedia Austin's KHFI and KPEZ, WPYO in Orlando and most recently, three years as Music Director and On-Air Personality, Evenings, at KCLD in St. Cloud, MN.

Scott Jameson, OM/VP Classic Rock for Cumulus Media said: “We’ve seen consistent growth with The Vibe, and adding Zannie to Afternoon Drive will no doubt sustain the positive momentum for our listeners and advertisers.”

Zannie said: "I am freaking out at the chance to work for this iconic Cumulus cluster here in the Twin Cities! I have been addicted to the Throwback format for years and to have this chance to return to the city I love and rock the mic for the ultimate Afternoon party is a DREAM! Thanks to Scott Jameson, Shelly Wilkes and Brian Curski for your vote of confidence. And a big shout to Tony Fly for the alley-oop! I'm ‘bout to dunk on ‘em, son!”
