*We can fill in a few more blanks on the NEW YORK City radio schedule this week (and open a new one), now that several of the city’s radio groups have announced new hires.
At Audacy, the new WCBS-FM (101.1) morning show with John Foxx now has a co-host, as Foxx reunites with a former WPLJ colleague, Anne Marie Leamy, who was a co-host of the “Todd and Jayde” morning show . The move brings “Annie” Leamy back to the city after three years as morning co-host on iHeart’s WRNQ (Q92) in Poughkeepsie, where she’d also worked at WSPK and WPKF before joining WPLJ.
The new “Fox and Annie” WCBS-FM show will debut February 13 from 6-10 AM, and it now has a somewhat unusual morning lead-in: WCBS-FM now simulcasts 15 minutes of news from its all-news sister WCBS (880) from 5:30 until 5:45, in what looks like a bid to give 880 a bit of FM attention after its sister station WINS (1010) added the WINS-FM 92.3 signal last year.
