Jim Day has moved from mornings at AC “Warm 98.5” WRRM to take over mornings at WGRR. Day had been with WRRM since 2017 first as morning show producer before rising to host in August 2018. Day previously hosted mornings at Country stations 92.3 WIL St. Louis in 2015-16, 95.5 KWEN Tulsa from 2009-15, 95.5 WSM-FM Nashville 2006-08, and 99.1 WHKO-FM Dayton. He also was APD/midday host at WHKO-FM and worked in multiple on-air roles at 97.1 WBNS-FM Columbus OH.

Day’s former co-host at WRRM, Amanda Orlando, remains in place now hosting solo.

Cumulus Media (NASDAQ: CMLS) announces that it has appointed Jim Day as On-Air Host, Mornings, on Cincinnati Classic Hits station 103.5 WGRR-FM. Day debuts this week and can be heard Monday through Friday from 5:00am-9:00am.

Day moves from his previous on-air post at Cumulus Cincinnati sister station Warm 98.5/WRRM-FM, where he was heard in PM drive. Prior to that, he hosted mornings on Warm 98.5. He moves to mornings on WGRR-FM following the retirement of former Morning Co-Hosts Chris O’Brien and Janeen Coyle on December 22nd, after 28 years on-air. Prior to joining Cumulus Cincinnati in 2016, Day hosted mornings on WHKO-FM in Dayton, OH; on KWEN-FM in Tulsa, OK, and on WSM-FM in Nashville, TN.

Jon Laing, Vice President/Market Manager, Cumulus Cincinnati, said: “We’re thrilled to have Jim continue the tradition of great local radio in mornings on WGRR-FM. Listening to Jim on the radio is just fun. His energy and enthusiasm are contagious, and that’s what radio is all about.”

Keith Mitchell, Program Director, WGRR-FM, said: “Jim will be a great addition to the WGRR team, and he only has to move his headphones about 30 feet. While never easy to replace a long-running show, Jim will bring energy, enthusiasm, and fun to mornings.”

Jim Day said: “I’ve worked “just down the hall” from Chris and Janeen for the last seven years and never imagined I would be considered to take over mornings at WGRR. I was surprised to be asked and I’m honored to take on the challenge. But more than all of that, I wish the happily married couple an amazing retirement!”
