Mahalick said, "I am truly honored to join the World Class broadcast team at Hubbard Radio. Big thanks to Ann Marie Mulholland, Ginny Morris, Drew Horowitz and Greg Strassell for having such a strong conviction to invest in and support great talent at the local level."

Concurrently, "Fitz in the Morning" returns to the Seattle airwaves on The Bull. Fitz brings many years as the leading country morning show in Seattle to Hubbard. Fitz' syndicated products continue with Hubbard's full support. Fitz lives in Issaquah, WA with his wife and five children.

Fitz commented, "I'm beyond thrilled to be joining the Hubbard Radio family and look forward to sharing my very best with the Northwest. It's going to be one heck of a ride."

Hubbard Radio Seattle VP/Market Manager Ann Marie Mulholland added, "The country audience in Seattle has been without their favorite morning show host for too long. I believe the dynamic duo of Fitz backed by Scott Mahalick will change the face of radio in Seattle."

Most recently, Fitz was the host of the highly-rated “Fitz in the Morning” show on KKWF The Wolf 100.7 FM, where he spent the past 12 years as one of the most-recognized personalities in the Seattle-Tacoma area.  In addition to his local Seattle morning show, his programs “The Hit List with Fitz,” “The Fitz Show,” and “Nashville Minute” are syndicated on hundreds of radio stations across North America by Sun Broadcast Group. Fitz  was also voted “Best Radio Personality” for eight consecutive years by NBC KING 5 television viewers.
