Cumulus Media announces that AC WRRM (WARM 98.5)/Cincinnati will debut “The WARM Morning Show with Jim and Amanda” this Monday, August 20. Airing from 5:30am-10:00am, the program features co-hosts Jim Day, top-rated WRRM personality and morning show producer and Amanda Orlando, who joins WARM 98.5 from sister station WNNF (NASH FM 4.1)/Cincinnati, where she has been APD/midday host.
Day has hosted popular morning shows at WHKO/Dayton, KWEN/Tulsa and WSM/Nashville, prior to joining WRRM last July. Before taking the midday spot at WNNF, Orlando was an award-winning morning show host at WUBE/Cincinnati and at WFMS/Indianapolis.
Dave Crowl, Regional Vice President/Market Manager, Cumulus-Cincinnati, said, “We are thrilled to debut WARM 98.5’s new morning show with Jim Day and Amanda Orlando, two dynamic personalities WARM listeners are going to love waking up to. We want to thank Bob Goen and Marianne Curan for their contributions to mornings on WARM, and wish them all the best.”
WRRM PD Brian Demay said, “Sometimes you just know! Jim and Amanda have obvious chemistry, they have both been a part of very successful morning shows – it’s time to put them together on Warm 98.5. Being able to move Amanda over from a few doors down the hall is an amazing coup!”
Orlando said, “I’m very excited to officially join the WARM family. We have all been friends and co-workers for years – heck, I’ve even been in some of their weddings! It feels like a very natural move and I cannot wait to start each day at WARM 98.5! I’m looking forward to many more lunches with Jim Day and family where we talk radio and bore our children for 3 hours!”
Day said, “Man, I count myself blessed. My family and I love living here and now I get to hang out with Amanda, too! She’s funny, her stories make me laugh and she is so West Side. I can’t wait to start the day and share that laughter with the Tri-State!”
