Bridgeport, CT – April 6th, 2015 – Connoisseur Media Connecticut is proud to announce former WCCC Hartford morning show host Jay Raven will join Anna Zap for the newly formed “Anna and Raven Show” on Bridgeport based HOT AC, Star 99.9.

Raven has had an extensive career working in Hartford, Providence and Boston and, after an exhaustive search, was the clear candidate to team with Anna. Program Director Kevin Begley commented “We were able to find a superstar talent in the market that cuts through. Over the last few years, we have succeeded in being a high energy radio station in the morning and Raven is exactly that. Anna continues to be a very important part of the radio station as she has made herself one of the biggest personalities in Connecticut.

I especially want to thank Regional Operations Manager Keith Dakin, General Manager Kristin Okesson, Director of Brand Management Michelle Stevens and Program Director Kevin Begley for making what was the most rigorous interview process ever truly eye opening and awakening the beast inside. April 20th, we’ll be ready to continue dominating southern Connecticut together!”
