Premiere Networks has announced that veteran radio personality Jenn Marino will return to Rock radio, as she joins Nikki Sixx as co-host of Sixx Sense with Nikki Sixx and The Side Show Countdown with Nikki Sixx. Marino will make her debut on Sixx Sense tonight (4/3), and will join The Side Show Countdown this weekend, April 5 and 6.
Marino previously served as co-host of the popular afternoon program Priestly & Jenn on WWMX/Baltimore. Prior to joining the station in 2007, she hosted middays on Baltimore/Washington, D.C.’s Rock Alternative WHFS. The Oklahoma City native got her start in radio while in college, and moved on to host various timeslots at WIYY (98 Rock)/Baltimore, Classic Rock KRXO/Oklahoma City and other stations.
"I’m incredibly excited for this insane opportunity," stated Marino. "I’ve been a fan of Nikki for years, and respect him not only as a radio host, but also as an artist. I look forward to creating something incredible with him and the entire Sixx Sense team. To say this is a dream job is an understatement."
"From the moment I met Jenn, we had great chemistry," stated Sixx. "Not only does she have a strong connection to the world of Rock music, but she’s also charming, funny and relatable. I think the audience is going to love her, and I couldn’t be more excited to welcome her to the team!"
Sixx's former co-host Kerri Kasem recently announced her decision to leave the programs. From March 31 through April 2, Sixx Sense featured an on-air tribute to Kasem with Marino, highlights from her four years with the program, and a special goodbye video has been posted on SixxSense.com.
