Here’s the “official” release…
MAY 15, 2014
The River Wake Up 8.0
PRINCE GEORGE: This morning, at a widely attended press conference, 101.3 The River programming phenom Ron Polillo announced the return of Jessica Rankin to The River’s flagship morning franchise. As usual Polillo kicked off the press conference by joking with reporters. “Knock knock” he said, “Who’s there?”, “Co-host”, “Co-host who?”, “Jessica Rankin!”
“Jessica is so well known in this community, there’s not much more I can say except, we are super excited and slightly nervous about this whole thing”, Polillo said.
Jessica has been honing her skills in the Far East, writing songs about The Great Lakes and trains and is excited to be back in the North Chair (since she didn’t get much of a send-off the last time she left and is still quite bitter about that).
Jessica hosted The River morning show with Mike Benny for nearly four years and currently holds the record for longest serving co-host. Jessica will hold two titles as “#4” and “#8”.
Jennifer Lee will now hold the record for shortest serving co-host, but retains the official title of “#7.1”.
For his part, Mike Benny has apparently used up all the co-hosts and is starting over again in reverse alphabetical order using a proximity bias. Fitting that criteria to a T, is Jessica Rankin.
“The River Wake Up with Mike & Jessica” will officially kick-off after the May Long Weekend on Tuesday May 20, 2014.
