AKRON -- Radio veteran personality Jeff Kinzbach is the new morning show host at 97.5 WONE in Akron.
Kinzbach is a life-long resident of Northeast Ohio and spent more than 20 years of his career on WMMS in Cleveland.
"WONE is a great radio station," Kinzbach says. "I'm excited to join the excellent staff and play the outstanding music that we all grew up with."
Program Director Tim Daugherty is also excited to welcome Jeff to the staff.
"I cut my teeth listening to him and I'm looking forward to the knowledge and energy this radio icon is bringing to WONE," Daugherty explains.
Kinzbach will be the solo host of WONE's morning show from 6 a.m. to 10 a.m. Monday through Friday effective immediately.
Kinzbach's addition isn't the only change at WONE. Earlier this week, on-air personalities Christi Nichols and Steve Hammond were both relieved of their duties at the station.
Nichols had co-hosted the morning show with Daugherty for several years, while Hammond, who dubbed himself "The Gate Keeper," had recently been covering the 7 p.m. - midnight airshift.
Despite the changes, WONE's Sandra Miller and TK O'Grady are slated to maintain their current airshifts.
Daugherty, although no longer a host of the morning show, will still lend his voice to 97.5's airwaves in some capacity. Those details are not yet known.
