FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
New Shows, Time Slots Highlight Big Changes at Q100.3
GRAYLING, Michigan – Jomama’s Joy Ride with Jomarie Leone highlights a new lineup of fun, entertainment and great music on Q100.3 – “The Only Place for Rock & Roll.”
Jomama’s new show will run from 3-7 p.m. J.C. In The Afternoon, with co-owner Jerry Coyne, held the afternoon drive-time slot at the station for nearly five years. But J.C. isn’t going anywhere. His new show, J.C.’s Midday Mind Trip, will run from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m., following JJ’s Morning Jams from 6-10 a.m.
The station is also introducing Weekend Request Fest with Roadrunner, Randy Long, on Saturday’s from 10 a.m.-3 p.m. and Sunday’s from noon-6 p.m.
The new line up begins on Monday, July 24, 2017.
The reorganization follows the retirement of Dave “Big Dog” Sherbert, who held the midday slot at the Q for many years.
“We’re absolutely thrilled to be able to move Jomama from weekends to our weekday afternoon time slot, and I’m sure her listeners are just as excited,” said Sheryl Coyne, president of Blarney Stone Broadcasting, which owns Q100 and several other stations in Northern Michigan. “She is a unique and interesting voice, and as much as I know people loved Jerry’s show I know Jomama will develop her own faithful following.”
A successful voice actor, Leone holds a master’s degree in theatre arts and produces and directs shows at the Kirtland Center for the Performing Arts. She born and raised in the Bay Area of San Francisco, and spent her high school years in the Rocky Mountain town of St. Maries, Idaho. She has two children, both actors, and spends her free time on the golf course.
J.C., meantime, looks forward to his new time slot, though it pains him to leave the all the friends he made who listened to his show on their drive home every evening.
“But this move is for the good of the station,” he said. “I’m confident that Jomama will continue to grow what we’ve built over the years here. And honestly, my on-air time represented just a fraction of my duties with the company, and this will afford me more time to commit to helping Sheryl with the business end of things here.”
