KANSAS CITY, MO– February 1, 2019 – CUMULUS MEDIA announces that it will launch The Afentra (Show) in Kansas City on Thursday, February 7th on X105.1/KCJK-FM. Airing weekdays from 3pm-8pm, Afentra will combine her legendary quick wit with her extensive Alternative music expertise and authentic connection to Kansas City’s Alternative fans and community. Afentra was previously on-air at Kansas City’s KRBZ “The Buzz” as the highly-rated morning show host of Afentra’s Big Fat Morning Buzz, a key component in the success of the station since 2003. 

Mike McVay, Executive Vice President, Content & Programming, CUMULUS MEDIA and Westwood One, said: “The opportunity to bring Afentra to the Cumulus KC cluster was one we simply couldn’t pass up. A talent with her skills, experience and market heritage is a rare find. We are excited to have her join our team.”

Mike O’Reilly, Program Director, KCJK 105.1, added: “Sometimes in a lineup strategy you get lucky and make a big splash. Adding Afentra to X105. 1 is more along the lines of a tidal wave for Kansas City Alternative! Afternoons is the ideal daypart for The Afentra (Show) on X105.1, and for her next chapter of success.”

Afentra said: "X105.1 didnʼt just say they wanted me, they showed me. Iʼm not just talking monetarily. Wanting me, my thoughts and my experience - that speaks to my soul, matching their words with actions. I'm rested, excited, and ready to win!"

Donna Baker, Regional Vice President, Cumulus Midwest Region, added: "Afentra has the gift of observing life in a manner that is real, whether hilarious or poignant and sharing that in a way that truly connects. Combined with her passion for music, artists, and community, The Afentra (Show) ignites a new world of success for the audience and advertisers on KCJK, X105.1. “

N.F.L. Prospect Michael Sam Proudly Says What Teammates Knew: He’s Gay

10football1-articleLarge Radio Facts gives KUDOS to NFL Prospect Michael Sam. Sam is the first kid in his family to attend college. The defensive lineman is projected to be chosen in the early rounds of the NFL draft in May.  (Great timing... what NFL team wants to be viewed as homophobic towards a stellar player in today's climate?) Coaches at the University of Missouri had divided players into small groups at a preseason football practice last year for a team-building exercise. The exercise asked players to talk about themselves, where they grew up, why they chose Missouri and what others might not know about them (sounds like pre damage control, perhaps the coaches had heard something) As Michael Sam, a defensive lineman, began to speak, he balled up a piece of paper in his hands. “I’m gay,” he said. With that, Mr. Sam became the first publicly gay player headed towards the National Football League. “I looked in their eyes, and they just started shaking their heads like, finally, he came out,” Sam stated Sunday in an interview with The New York Times, the first time he had spoken publicly about his sexual orientation.  Growing up in Hitchcock, Tex (near Houston) he is the 7th of 8 children to JoAnn and Michael Sam. Three of his siblings have died and two brothers are in prison. Raised mostly by his mother (wow, that's rare for a black kid) he spent some years with another family and all have been supportive of him being the first at something else, the first NFL prospect to admit that he is gay.  Sam states he wanted to come out after an event where he was not aware so many people knew he was gay (how much do you want to bet it was a black  event where he was chided by black people name calling).
