WXYT-FM/AM adds Sara to morning show

Tom Bigby, operations manager of sports WXYT-FM/AM 97.1/1270 announced the addition of Sara Fouracre to the “Jay Towers and Bill McAllister In The Morning” on the CBS Radio station effective immediately.

Sara was born and raised in the Detroit area, is a graduate of Michigan State and is a 10 year Detroit Radio broadcasting veteran. Most recently she worked as a co-host on the Mojo in the Morning show on 95.5 (WKQI-FM) covering news and entertainment for the past eight years.

“We’re very excited to have Sara join our morning team,” said CBS Radio market manager Debbie Kenyon. “She is very well known and will be a great addition to Jay and Bill’s Morning Show.”

"I've always respected Jay Towers as a radio personality and I was a huge fan of the previous show that he and Bill McAllister hosted,” noted Sara. “To work with them both now is a joy and an amazing opportunity."

Good news for fans of demented horror fare: "Wolfman Mac's Nightmare Sinema," which premiered at 1 a.m. last Saturday, will be moving to a new and better timeslot on April 26: midnight on Saturday night. The move is in part because viewers called and e-mailed requesting an earlier time. "But it's also because TV20 wants to help me, they see that I'm pouring my heart and soul into this, and they want to give me a break," says Mac Kelly, who portrays Wolfman Mac and voices his skeletal sidekick, Bony Bob. "They're excited about this, and especially excited to be supporting something local." The lead-in show is more appropriate, too... The Wolfman will howl at midnight (Fri, 3/21)
