WALK 97.5’s Program Director and midday personality Tommy Conway said ” I am thrilled to have Jamie join us for mornings on WALK. She is talented, energetic and a perfect fit for our audience. She will make an impact right away.”
Jamie Morris is not a stranger to Long Island having been WALK 97.5’s morning traffic personality before taking her charm and energy to New York City to serve as morning traffic personality for iHeart Media’s cluster. For the past 8 years Jamie has been a familiar voice with regular weekend shifts on New York’s WKTU as well as filling in for the morning shows in WKTU and Lite-FM.
“It is truly an honor to join the WALK family. Mark has been both a mentor and a friend for many years, and I’m so excited for us to take on Long Island mornings together! Thank you Jim Condron, Patrick Shea, Tommy Conway and Michelle Stevens for this incredible opportunity” said Jamie.
Mark Daniels has been host of the WALK’s morning show for more than 3 decades and has seen Long Island through triumphs and tragedies. Mark has been a fixture in the Long Island community on the air and off. ” These last sixteen years with Cindy have been sheer fun all the way. She’s a true media professional and I know whatever the future holds for her will be filled with success and her contagious laugh we all have come to love! I’m thrilled Jamie is joining WALK! There’s no doubt she will continue to grow the WALK brand in a big way. She comes from years of experience in the biggest radio market in the country. We go back many years together and I couldn’t think of anyone else I’d like to work with that early in the morning. Welcome “radio sis” ! says Mark.
