Former WGST anchor Jennifer Perry has been named program director at eight-month-old All News 106.7.
She takes over for Marshall Adams, who left last fall after just five months on the job.
Perry, according to her LinkedIn page, worked as an anchor and reporter at what was news/talk 640/WGST-AM from 2004 until the station's demise in September, 2012. The station is now EPSN Hispanic sports talk.
She was also Rusty Humphries' news sidekick for his local afternoon show, which died along with the format last fall.
"That's fantastic," said Humphries, who now is back in Oregon doing his daily syndicated talk show. "Jennifer is one of the best. She deserves a position like that. She'll do a great. job."
All News has drawn relatively modest ratings, averaging a 1.3 share the past few months.
Although the station runs straight news most of the time, it's adding some specialty programming. Our real estate reporter passed this on:
“Real Estate Radio Atlanta (RERA) with Susan Pryor,” part of the national Real Estate Radio Network (RERN), has officially hit the metro Atlanta airwaves. The show, produced and hosted by Susan Pryor of Silverton Mortgage Specialists, Inc. with co-host David Perrie of Perrie & Associates, LLC, airs on Saturdays from 9-10 a.m. ET on All News 106.7 FM. The show covers a wide variety of topics of interest to many professionals in the real estate industry, as well as metro Atlanta consumers, but primarily focuses on financial wisdom, prosperity and home ownership.
