New Morning Show Coming To New Country 99.1
New Country 99.1 in Northern Colorado will debut a new morning show called “Mornings With Jordan and Michael,” on Monday, March 11th.
The new hosts are Jordan Soto, who previously worked in Pensacola, Florida radio, and Michael Mason, who previously worked in Seattle and Richmond, Virginia. The show is scheduled to air weekdays from 5 a.m. to 10 a.m. The new duo succeeds the long-running “Good Morning Guys" and previous hosts Todd Harding and Brian Gary. Harding left the station in late January and Gary retired around the same time.
“I am so excited to take this next step in my career with such an innovative team and such an exciting time in new country music,” Soto said. “I traded in snowy white beaches for actual snow. I’m all in: festivals, fishing, off-roading, Country swing dancing, snowboarding. I mean I even get to live on a ranch! The mountain sunrises and sunsets are mesmerizing every single day.”
Mason shares a similar excitement.
“From the moment I arrived in Northern Colorado I was hooked, and not just because of the indisputable beauty,” Mason said. “Huge thanks to my trusted friend Kraig Kitchen, who introduced me to this winning team. I’ve truly never been so excited to work and collaborate with so many big market guns, in such a special place.”
Earlier this year, Country K99 rebranded itself as New Country 99.1. The station is run by Townsquare Media's Northern Colorado office.
"At Townsquare we are completely focused on entertaining and engaging our local community in Northern Colorado," said Townsquare Northern Colorado market president Evan Harrison. "Jordan and Michael are the perfect duo to lead this charge on New Country mornings. Jordan lives the New Country lifestyle completely and is a Colorado native. Like so many of us living here, Michael is new to the area, and he is so eager to dive in to experience it all. Together, they’ll be sharing real stories about our day-to-day lives here in NoCo and celebrating New Country with their listeners.”
