Fort Wayne, Indiana: On-air personality Patrick Grey has been tapped for nights on CHR/Pop (Top 40) station WJFX (HOT 107.9). Patrick began his broadcast career at HOT 107.9 in 2011 as a Promotions intern, eventually working his way up to a part-time on-air position. He has spent the past 3 years with Mainestream Media CHR/Rhythmic WHTP (HOT 104.7) in the Portland, ME market, where he did nights, and later, morning drive.
HOT 107.9 Brand Manager Robbie Mack says, “Patrick’s on-air skills speak for themselves. The best show in Fort Wayne at night will be on HOT 107.9. When you add in the graphics, social media and digital expertise, he’s a natural fit with our team. I’m excited he’s back with HOT 107.9.”
“After a short hiatus from radio, I’m very excited to be back behind the mic, in my hometown no less, and at what I consider to be my “home station.”’, added Grey. “HOT 107.9 is where I began my career in radio, and I’m ready to start my next chapter back with the roots!”
Chris Monk, Adams Radio Fort Wayne VP & Market Manager commented: “I am excited to continue to build on a great brand and station with a very talented individual.”
Patrick Grey begins on the air this Wednesday at 6pm.
The addition of Patrick Grey to HOT 107.9, comes thanks to a move of former night jock, Travis Walker.
Robbie Mack, Brand Manager, commented: “Travis is being promoted to our Adult Contemporary station, Soft Rock 103.9, and the 10am-3pm daypart. The growth of listenership to Soft Rock 103.9 has been tremendous in the last few months. Having a dynamic and skilled personality like Travis take over this important daypart will only keep the forward momentum of this exciting new radio station!”
Mack was previously handling the mid-day shift on Soft Rock 103.9.
