iHeartMedia announced today that “The Woody Show” will join 105.9 The X (WXDX-FM), Pittsburgh’s Rock and Alternative, for morning drive, effective January 4. The top-rated morning show will broadcast from 6 – 10 a.m. EST.
“The Woody Show” is highly-interactive, socially-engaging appointment radio. Featuring Woody, along with co-hosts Ravey, Greg Gory, Menace and Sebas, “The Woody Show” is described by listeners as “authentic,” “raw,” “unapologetic,” and the “recess/happy hour on the radio.” In 2016, the popular program was a NAB Marconi Radio Award finalist for “Major Market Personality of the Year,” and it was launched into national syndication by Premiere Networks in 2017. Fans can follow the show on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.
“The entire 105.9 The X family is excited to welcome Woody back to Pittsburgh,” said Abby Krizner, Program Director for 105.9 The X. “Woody and his crew join a strong lineup along with Mark Madden in the afternoons, the best rock and alternative for Pittsburgh, and our unmatched coverage and broadcasts of The Pittsburgh Penguins.”
“My Pittsburgh roots run deep. I was conceived, birthed and like Mark Cuban graduated High School in Mt. Lebanon. I bleed black and gold. My radio career began as an intern at B94 and thanks to Abby Krizner, Gene Romano and David Edgar it continues on at 105-9 The X!”
