Raleigh, N.C. – January 3, 2018 – iHeartMedia’s 95X, Raleigh’s New Rock Alternative, announced today the debut of The Woody Show, effective immediately. The top-rated morning show broadcasts Monday through Friday, 6 - 10 a.m. ET.
The Woody Show is highly-interactive, socially-engaging appointment radio. Featuring Woody, along with co-hosts Ravey, Greg Gory, Menace and Sebas, The Woody Show is described by listeners as “authentic,” “raw,” “unapologetic” and “recess/happy hour on the radio.” In 2016, the popular program was a NAB Marconi Radio Award finalist for “Major Market Personality of the Year,” and it was launched into national syndication by Premiere Networks in 2017. Fans can follow the show on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.
“The good news is that we get to join Chris Edge and the team at 95X,” said Woody. “The bad news is that since I have family in Raleigh, I’ll have to change the names of the people in some of my personal stories to protect the innocent.”
“As the 95X brand in Raleigh continues to evolve, we think The Woody Show’s authentic brand of entertainment is a perfect fit!” said Chris Edge, Senior Vice President of Programming for iHeartMedia Raleigh/Greensboro.
