Mic), creating a completely new show from the ground up for Island 106

We asked Jenn her thoughts on coming to Panama City Beach, and she said
something about not wanting to say something nice about that a-hole PD Marc
Summers. We reminded her that her new contract required her to paint the
company in a positive light some cursing ensued, then she said Ive always
said I want to be the host of a morning show and now Ill be doing just that
on an amazing heritage station, Island 106! Thank you Marc Summers and
Misty Sims for giving me this incredible opportunity! I cant wait to join
the team at Island 106 and start waking up Panama City!

Marc Summers, Magic Broadcastings Operation Manager, and WILN PD, (who is
well known for his positive and cheerful attitude) added, What the hell do
you mean she isnt here for 3 more weeks.Fk that if she drives non-stop she
can be on the air tomorrow!

Fortunately, Magic Broadcasting General Manager, Misty Sims, is always
looking on the bright side, adding After watching Magic Broadcasting lose
half our staff to large markets over the last two years, its nice to see
the big guys paying it back. And what a great talent, too. Spend 5
minutes in a room with Jenn and two things are inescapable; Shes a radio
fanatic, and she wont take Marcs ****! Really, what more could I ask for?
