First New Syndicated Show from Westwood One Nashville
NEW YORK, NY – May 4, 2020 – CUMULUS MEDIA’s Westwood One today launches Morning Koffy, a new Country radio morning show airing Monday-Friday from 6 a.m. to 10 a.m. ET. Paul Koffy, an award-winning broadcaster widely known for his authentic and perceptive interview style, hosts the syndicated program with Jasmine Sadry, another veteran Country morning radio personality, as his sidekick.
Each morning, Koffy and Sadry offer an energetic mix of today’s Country music hits, timely news updates, and interviews with top Country music stars, celebrities, and notable guests.
“Well known in the radio industry and well-liked by Country artists, Paul is the ideal host for this new show,” said Suzanne Grimes, EVP Marketing, CUMULUS MEDIA and President, Westwood One. “Paul has spent his entire career in Country music and, surprisingly, has never before hosted a program from Nashville – we can’t wait to see what he does from Music City. With Jasmine on the other mic, this show is one good morning brew.”
“The fact that this team came together over hours of Zoom and phone calls is proof that we are turning a new page at Westwood One Nashville,” said Paul Williams, Director of Programming for Westwood One Nashville. “With Paul’s home-spun ‘my tractor is more expensive than my car’ attitude and Jasmine’s Texas swagger, they just light it up together.”
“This opportunity to serve stations, businesses, communities, and individuals meets in a junction box with pivotal timing, an enormous platform, and a swell of creatives,” said Koffy. “I am deeply thankful for everyone who has been a part of bringing this together and stoked to be on the team.”
