As Midday Host, Sami Jo will air the latest hits from top artists including Ariana Grande, Harry Styles and The Weeknd. In addition, she will feature “Y100 Trending” reports and several call-in topics during this engaging workday show. She will continue to report to Taylor Jukes, Program Director of Y100.
“Sami Jo has an incredible ability to connect with listeners of all ages, as she lives for pop culture, enjoys chatting with callers and truly loves the music we play,” said Jukes. “It comes through in her live show and on-location when she instantly bonds with fans. Just don’t sit next to her at a Harry Styles concert, or your ears may ring the next day!”

Growing up just a few hours away in Tampa and now living in South Florida, I feel so at home at Y100! I can’t wait to further connect with our listeners. I really appreciate this incredible opportunity!”
