Show Features Tommy McFly and Kelly Collis of DC’s Successful ”Tommy Show”
Upbeat and Energetic Offering Each Weekday for Flexible Programming
RadioFacts: United Stations, an independent leader in creating and marketing network radio programming, announced today it will distribute “The Tommy and Kelly Show” to radio stations nationwide. The weekday program features Tommy McFly and Kelly Collis who were paired for nearly a decade in Mornings on Entercom’s WIAD (“Fresh FM”) in Washington, D.C. Radio stations adding “The Tommy and Kelly Show” to their lineup will receive dynamic content that easily integrates into any daypart. Each affiliate can receive dynamic content daily to blend with their own music and programming clock.
“THE TOMMY AND KELLY SHOW” is an evolution of “The Tommy Show” which is a favorite of both listeners and advertisers in the Washington, DC market. Their former program director Steve Davis says, “Tommy and Kelly are incredibly talented, smart, funny, topical, relatable, and the hardest working show I’ve ever had in my career.” Their show has been called “The Fun Table at a Wedding,” by local media. Tommy and Kelly can now deliver their friendly and unique take on current events to your community using fun guests, authentic voices, and a healthy dose of the unexpected that will brighten any daypart on your station. They bring a track record in both the Hot AC and the Country formats, by delivering a unique blend of social responsibility and community engagement that has translated into a large and loyal social media following.
“From my first job in radio playing Mr. Froggy, WGGY’s mascot, in my hometown of Scranton, PA to emceeing the NAB’s State Leadership Conference I’ve appreciated every opportunity radio has given me to connect with communities.” McFLY said, “it’s a dream come true to be able to offer our show to radio stations everywhere.”
“Being able to share stories that are relatable and bring us together is what I love most about being a broadcaster. We are excited to be part of your team and bring a meaningful solution to your station’s lineup.” Collis said.
In marking this program addition, United Stations’ VP/Affiliation and Content, Stefan Jones commented, ”Tommy and Kelly are ideal content partners. We’ve known them for a long time on both a professional and a personal basis, and we know they’ve got the energy and the creativity to entertain and engage audiences anywhere they are heard. Plus, on our roster, they are in a lane of their own, so there’s tremendous potential for growth.”
Kelly Collis is the daughter of an Army doctor, born at Walter Reed Medical Center. She was raised on sports, Madonna music and her mom’s authentic Cuban cooking. Managing two teenagers, two step-kids, her husband “Stedman,” Peloton rides, book club, wine trends and her lapdog Lola, Kelly brings it all to the show.
Tommy McFLY is a relentlessly upbeat, rescue dog-loving millennial Gemini, son of a cop, originally from Scranton, PA. McFLY lives with his husband “Chrys,” shares his life and most every meal he eats on Instagram, and (fun fact) in 2011 was the first person in history to emcee the White House Easter Egg Roll.
The Tommy and Kelly Show will be delivered via FTP using USRN secured servers, and announcements will be coming soon regarding the initial affiliates for the program.
