He succeeds OM/PD/morning co-host Casey Daniels, who has departed after eight months (CAT 3/9) to return to Indiana for personal reasons; afternoon personality “Big Woody Hayes” Pelt moves from afternoons to Mornings With Cash & Woody, a shift he handled prior to a March lineup change (CAT 3/25). “Jason Taylor is a brand that Tallahassee Country listeners had adored for many years,” says VP/GM Jason Lamp.

[and] decided I had to dress up like The Chief,” says Dina B. “If I lose a bet, I’ll always settle up.” Which is only fair, considering she previously bested Conlon in their wager surrounding the 55th ACM Awards (CAT 9/18).
