“Bringing Wazz back home to Cleveland is an important step for WGAR as we develop a fresh new morning show for Clevelanders by Clevelanders,” said Keith Hotchkiss, President of iHeartMedia’s North Ohio Region. “We are thrilled to pair Wazz with LeeAnn Sommers who is already a fan favorite on WGAR. Wazz is not only an engaging on-air talent, but he also possesses incredible talents off-air and in the social space.”
“It’s great to be home,” said Wazz. “It’s crazy, my parents still live in the same house I grew up in, and to think I would have the opportunity to work at WGAR, is incredible. I love Cleveland, I love Cleveland sports and I love everything this city stands for. The goal of this amazing radio journey was to eventually get back home and do radio in my home town. I could not be more excited.”
