Today, WNEW/FRESH 102.7 is debuting new shows with Mike Adams in the new afternoon (Monday-Friday 3:00-7:00 PM) and Cane in the evening (Monday-Friday 7:00 PM-12:00 AM). Matt Sneed takes over during mid-days on Saturdays and Sundays beginning this weekend. The announcement was made by Program Director, Jim Ryan. All three hosts can be heard on-air on New York’s FRESH 102.7 FM, online at fresh1027.com and through the Radio.com mobile app.
“Mike’s experience in CHR in Philly and on our sister station, 92.3 AMP, will help WNEW grow with an active audience. Cane’s long time experience in the New York market is invaluable, and we look forward to Matt’s continuing contributions in his fill in and weekend starring roles. I’m very excited about this new line-up on Fresh,” said Ryan.
Mike Adams added, “I’ve been trying to convince Jim to hire me for quite a while now; I guess I finally wore him down. Jim Ryan is a legend in the industry; I’m honored I get to work for him. This gig is every radio jock’s dream, including mine. Thank you to Jim, Chris Oliviero, and my agent Tony Burton.”
Mike Adams joined FRESH 102.7 in July for summer fill-in work. Prior to that he hosted weekends on sister station WBMP/92.3 AMP RADIO and afternoon drive on the former WZMP in Philadelphia. Cane joined FRESH back in 2014 and has worked at a variety of stations in the New York area, including WXRK and WHTZ. Matt Sneed also joined FRESH in 2014 after doing on-air work at WPST in Central New Jersey and WXTU in Philadelphia.
