Cumulus Media (NASDAQ: CMLS) announces that Rock 100.5/WNNX-FM, Atlanta’s only Rock station, is adding the “Elliot In The Morning” show to its all-star lineup. Hosted by Elliot Segal, “Elliot in the Morning” can be heard on Rock 100.5 from 5:44am-10:00am Monday through Friday, starting Monday, March 28th.
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.
Sean Shannon, Vice President/Market Manager, Cumulus Atlanta, said: “We’re beyond excited to bring Elliot in the Morning to Atlanta. Elliot and his team’s ability to engage listeners with funny, relatable content is exactly what we were looking for to complete our all-star weekday lineup.”
Axel Lowe, Program Director, Rock 100.5/WNNX-FM, said: “It’s everything we were looking for in a morning show: topical, edgy, and extremely funny. We’re excited to have Elliot in the Morning on Rock 100.5!”
Segal said: “I’m very excited to be joining Cumulus on Rock 100.5 in Atlanta. Thanks to Sean Shannon and Dave Milner. After spending time with them in Atlanta and talking about my style of syndication and their vision for WNNX, we all decided it was the right fit. Also, thank you to Brian Philips. Any opportunity to work with, and for, Brian is a rare opportunity that only makes you a better disc jockey or broadcaster. There is plenty of work ahead, but I look forward to getting started making Atlanta part of the EITM network.”
