WWO Makes Multiple Format Hires

Westwood One welcomes back three well-known on-air personalities to the network’s 24/7 Formats division — Marconi, Jay Coffey, and Tony Scott — plus welcomes veteran Lynn Briggs to the network roster.
  • Marconi, a rock legend in his own right, returns home to Westwood One’s Rock 2.0. Marconi also worked at WKQX/Chicago, KUFO/Portland, and KNDD/Seattle.
  • Jay Coffey is well-known for playing the hits in Los Angeles for over 28 years on KIQQ and on K-EARTH 101, where he became Music Director, Assistant Program Director, and eventually Program Director. Coffey also worked at KBSG/Seattle, KFRC/San Francisco, and MAX-FM/San Diego. Coffey is returning to Classic Hits, middays.
