iHeartMedia CHR Power 96.1 WWPW Atlanta has completed the revamp of its
on-air lineup with the addition of The Jubal Show for mornings.

Atlanta becomes the largest market for the Hits 106.1 KBKS Seattle based
Jubal Show since its debut last August and entry into syndication in
October. His previous show, Brooke Jubal never aired in Atlanta.

The addition of The Jubal Show finalizes the complete overhaul of the
stations on-air lineup. Following the exits of morning hosts PK Denise
Kalentzis and APD/MD/afternoon host Ryan Maddox in the companys November
layoffs, the station has imported three new local talents from other
markets. Z104.3 WZFT Baltimore night host Shelby Sos joined the station as
9-11am host and will be the local producer/co-host for the Jubal Show.
Channel 93.3 KHTS-FM San Diego night host Ethan Cole moved to Atlanta to
host afternoons, while former Z107.7 KSLZ St. Louis morning co-host/mixer
MiKeith Teague is hosting nights.

Power 96.1, Atlanta’s #1 Hit Music Station, announced today that “The
Jubal Show” will join the station’s morning drive lineup, effective
immediately. The show will broadcast weekdays from 5 – 9 a.m., kickstarting
the all new Power 96.1 lineup.

Jubal is a marquee talent with a track record of driving ratings and
revenue both locally and nationally. His nationally syndicated show,
co-hosted by his wife Alex Fresh and English Evan, is known to listeners
for its humor and fun and is unafraid to tackle the topical world we live
in. In The Jubal Show, nothing is sacred, and nothing is off-limits.
Fan-favorite segments include: Dirty Little Secret, Jubals Phone Prank,
First Date Follow Up, War of the Roses, and more.

Full Programming Lineup:

The Jubal Show 5 – 9 a.m.

SOS 9 – 11 a.m.

the best.”
