Cumulus Debuts New Morning Show in Grand Rapids
Cumulus Media has introduced a new morning radio show, “The Gray and Green Show” on WHTS-FM (Grand Rapids).
“The Gray and Green Show” features high-profile media personalities Rachael Gray and Jackie Green, and is the first and only morning radio show in West Michigan presented by two female hosts. The program, which debuted August 26, airs weekdays from 6 – 10 a.m.
Rachael Gray has been waking up West Michigan for the past seven years on the station, and started her career hosting mornings at WBTI-FM (Port Huron).
Jackie Green started her broadcast career hosting nights and middays at WGRD-FM (Grand Rapids) before seguing to television as a WXMI-TV/Fox 17 feature reporter for the “On the Scene with Jackie Green” segment. In 2016, Jackie moved back to radio, joining WHTS-FM as afternoon drive host.
“We are so excited to present this one-of-a-kind show to the West Michigan audience!” said Lori Bennett, Operations Manager, Cumulus West Michigan, and Program Director of 105.3 HOT FM. “Rachael and Jackie are two of the most dynamic personalities I’ve ever worked with and their emotional connection as part of the West Michigan community is unmatched. Sure, they’re about ‘girl power,’ but actually, it’s ‘people power’.”
Rachael Gray said: “I have never been more thrilled in my entire career! It’s an exciting time for our industry, and I feel beyond grateful that I get to sit ‘across the board’ from one of my closest friends, who also happens to be an amazing woman.”
Jackie Green added: “Since I began in radio, my dream was to be part of a morning show. I’m so happy to make the move to work with Rachael, who’s not only an incredible talent but a great friend.”
