Audacy announced the addition of Elliot Segal to the weekday programming lineup for ALT 96.5 (KRBZ-FM) in Kansas City. Segal, whose morning show “Elliot in the Morning” is also heard on Richmond sister station ALT 102.1 (WRXL-FM), will now also be heard on the station weekdays from 5:00 to 9:00 a.m. CT, beginning January 3.
“We are so excited to welcome Elliot to Kansas City and bring the highly entertaining and popular ‘Eliot in the Morning’ show to alternative listeners,” said Roxanne Marati, Senior Vice President and Market Manager, Audacy Kansas City. “We look forward to waking up to Elliot, Diane and the rest of the crew each and every morning.”
“To say I’m excited about launching EITM in Kansas City is an understatement,” said Segal. “Thanks to Jeff Sottolano and Mike Kaplan who have spent plenty of time with me discussing my vision for the show. I also want to thank Roxanne, Lazlo and Slim for their time and insight while the show was visiting Kansas City.”
In a career spanning more than three decades, Segal’s love of radio took him from his hometown of Houston out west to Los Angeles and across the country to New York. In 1999, he lit the on-air lamp in Washington, D.C., where he first broadcast the “Elliot in the Morning” show alongside co-host Diane Stupar. The show’s focus has always remained the same: connecting with listeners. Whether it’s to newsmakers via interviews or just to everyday people who are making life interesting, “Elliot in the Morning” wants to talk about it all with its listeners.
