RADIO ONE DETROIT ANNOUNCES BIG CHANGES TO 105.9 KISS MORNING SHOW!
Detroit, MI – July 5, 2014 – Radio One Detroit, which informs, entertains and inspires audiences every day, announced the creation of a brand new local and live morning show featuring iconic Detroit radio talent John Mason on WDMK, 105.9 KISS in March 2014. Today the show added energetic, funny and savvy COCO to the KISS cast. The Mason & COCO Morning Show will air weekdays from 5:30 – 10am starting Monday, July 7, 2014.
Mason & COCO in the Morning – Detroit’s Live & Local morning show is certain to be fun and entertaining while also serving up local news, traffic and events of interest to the Detroit area. The pair will make local listeners part of the show by being interactive while informative. It’s the kind of show that syndicated programming cannot deliver because of the localization factor. “I see it as a two-fold blessing and an awesome opportunity to be able to work yet once again with people that help me cut my teeth in radio, and be active in the metamorphosis of Detroit and its wonderful communities!” said COCO.
Funny Man Foolish will be joining the Rickey Smiley Morning Show on HOT 107.5 as a local correspondent. Foolish will be performing live & local segments weekdays from 6am -10am. Segments include “Foolish Word of the Day,” “Foolish Hot Topic,” and “Foolish Parody Songs.” He will serve as the local ambassador for the Rickey Smiley Show, making various guest appearances throughout the community. “We received a flood of phone calls as soon as the competition took COCO and Foolish off the air. There was never any question about having them join us. COCO teaming with Mason in the morning will be a huge hit on Kiss 105.9. Pairing Foolish with the Rickey Smiley Morning Show will give the Detroit spin only Foolish can deliver,” says Kathy Stinehour, V.P. General Manager of Radio One Detroit.
