Jenkins to Join Host Ty Bentli, Chuck Wicks and Country Music’s Biggest Stars LIVE From Nashville in Mid-February!
NASHVILLE, TN – January 30, 2019 – CUMULUS MEDIA announces that The Ty Bentli Show, Country’s most energetic and freshest take on morning radio, welcomes Country radio personality Tricia Jenkins to the show. Jenkins joins Host Ty Bentli, Chuck Wicks and the team on-air in mid-February. Jenkins heads to Nashville, home of Cumulus Media’s NASH studios and The Ty Bentli Show, from Minneapolis, MN, where she was previously midday personality and Music Director at KMNB-FM, and fill-in personality at K102/KEEY-FM.
The Ty Bentli Show launched earlier this month and features Host Ty Bentli, Country recording artist and on-air personality Chuck Wicks, and an expanded cast of friends and characters who get real, get wild, and get Country weekday mornings live from the Music City. The Ty Bentli Show is syndicated exclusively by Westwood One, the largest audio network in the U.S.
John Shomby, Director of Programming, NASH, said: “The cast is now complete. We look forward to TJ being an integral part of The Ty Bentli Show.”
“TJ is one of the most amazing women I know,” Ty Bentli professed. “Her value goes beyond the magic she will bring on-air with The Ty Bentli Show – she’s hilariously honest, strategically focused, and innately curious about others. Tricia Jenkins, welcome to the Music City!”
Tricia Jenkins noted: “It doesn’t matter how long I’ve been in this business, it’s still mind blowing to me that I get to live in Music City to be a part of The Ty Bentli Show as my JOB! I can’t wait to join the team at Cumulus Nashville and wake up with all of my new friends across the nation! Thank you, John Shomby, Ty, and Mike McVay for everything, but mostly for moving me out of -57 degrees (the current wind chill as I’m writing this)!”
Broadcasting from the Music City, The Ty Bentli Show brings humor, honesty and an edge as Ty and the cast welcome Country music’s biggest stars and engage with listeners in authentic conversations of life stories, opinions, relationships, insecurities, and more.
