It's official, WILN (Island 106)/Panama City, has tapped Jenn Ryan for a new morning show beginning March 27. She will join Jimmy Phillips, formerly with Mandy in the Morning who recently departed for Lexington, KY.
Jenn has been a co-host with some great morning shows in large markets across the US, including, most recently at KCJK in Kansas City, WKDD in Akron, and KBKO in Bakersfield, and she worked the mid-day shifts at KCHZ and KLLY, and she will be stepping up to the big chair (and Mic), creating a completely new show from the ground up for Island 106.
"I've always said 'I want to be the host of a morning show' and now I'll be doing just that on an amazing heritage station, Island 106!" said Ryan. "Thank you Marc Summers and Misty Sims for giving me this incredible opportunity! I can't wait to join the team at Island 106 and start waking up Panama City!"
Marc Summers, Magic Broadcasting's OM & WILN PD, (who is well known for his positive and cheerful attitude) added, "What the hell do you mean she isn't here for 3 more weeks....F--k that... if she drives non-stop she can be on the air tomorrow!"
Fortunately, Magic Broadcasting General Manager, Misty Sims, is always looking on the bright side, adding "After watching Magic Broadcasting lose half our staff to large markets over the last two years, it's nice to see the big guys paying it back. And what a great talent, too. Spend 5 minutes in a room with Jenn and two things are inescapable; She's a radio fanatic, and she won't take Marc's shit! Really, what more could I ask for?"
