The New 107.1 The BOSS, Classic Rock of the ‘70s, ‘80s, and More, launches
its new lineup on Monday, March 27th with the 5:30 a.m. debut of “The

Acampora, who previously worked through most of the ’90s at WHTG-FM, is a
born and bred Jersey boy, whose stops include WSTW in Delaware, B104 in the

is joined by seasoned broadcaster McClure, who has an extensive radio
resume that includes The Wall Street Journal Radio Network, WPST, B98.5 and
Q102 in Philadelphia.

“I have waited a long time for this opportunity, and I am partnered with
someone who has the same drive as I do,” says Acampora. “I’m inviting
everyone at the Jersey Shore to tune in from 5:30 a.m. to 10 a.m. weekdays.
I promise you will not be disappointed.”

“I am so excited to be back at the Jersey Shore,” says McClure. “Rob and I
want you to want us every morning!”

recently) 94.3 The Point. Amabile also cut her teeth as a journalist,
covering several seasons of American Idol as well as music reporting for
Billboard and The Hollywood Reporter.

“I missed being on the air every day, and I am beyond thrilled to be back
with my old friend, Rob Acampora, who shares the same passion and love of
music that I do,” Amabile says. “Rob and I go way back, and coming back to
Press Communications feels like home to me. We are going to have a good

thank Press Communications for the opportunity to let us live out our
passion and play this awesome music. More surprises to come!”
