107.1 The BOSS/New Jersey Announce Air Talent Line-Up

Press Communications Classic Rock WWZY/WBHX (107.1 The Boss) launches its new lineup on Monday, March 27th with the 5:30 a.m. debut of "The Morning Kickstart" with Rob Acampora and Wendy McClure.

Acampora, who previously worked through most of the '90s at WHTG-FM, is a born and bred Jersey boy, whose stops include WSTW in Delaware, B104 in the Lehigh Valley, and local entities B98.5 and (most recently) Thunder 106. He is joined by seasoned broadcaster McClure, who has an extensive radio resume that includes The Wall Street Journal Radio Network, WPST, B98.5 and Q102 in Philadelphia.

"I have waited a long time for this opportunity, and I am partnered with someone who has the same drive as I do," says Acampora. "I'm inviting everyone at the Jersey Shore to tune in from 5:30 a.m. to 10 a.m. weekdays. I promise you will not be disappointed."

"I am so excited to be back at the Jersey Shore," says McClure. "Rob and I want you to want us every morning!"

Taking on mid-day duties is Michele Amabile, formerly of WHTG-FM. Amabile's previous stops around the dial include morning duties at G106.3 and Digital 102.7 in Atlantic City, shifts at 94.1 WYSP, 95.9 The Rat, and (most recently) 94.3 The Point. Amabile also cut her teeth as a journalist, covering several seasons of American Idol as well as music reporting for Billboard and The Hollywood Reporter.

"I missed being on the air every day, and I am beyond thrilled to be back with my old friend, Rob Acampora, who shares the same passion and love of music that I do," Amabile says. "Rob and I go way back, and coming back to Press Communications feels like home to me. We are going to have a good time."

Rounding out the lineup in afternoon drive is Vice President of Programming, Jeff Rafter, celebrating his 40th year in New Jersey radio. Rafter's career also began at WHTG-AM/FM, continuing with a winning streak that included stints at WJLK, WOBM, WJRZ, Seaview 107.1, and (most recently) WMGQ.

“We are live and local!  This is the next step in the evolution of the new 107.1 The BOSS. I am thrilled to be back on the radio where I grew up. I thank Press Communications for the opportunity to let us live out our passion and play this awesome music. More surprises to come!”
