New Morning Team for WSM 95.5 The Wolf

Over the last few months, Cumulus Radio’s 95.5 The Wolf (WSM-FM) in Nashville has been assembling a new team for its morning show, the Wake Up with the Wolf Show. Show host Rick Marino, who has been a fixture on the Nashville airwaves since 1994, was joined in May by another well-known market face, TV meteorologist and newsman Tim Ross.

As reported in last week’s MusicRow chart report, Beth Brightwell, a 10-year radio and morning show veteran of North Central Florida, has also joined the new morning crew. Completing the team at WSM is Ashley Mann, who offers a unique perspective, having stinted at KZLA (Los Angeles) and produced syndicated seasonal radio shows. Mann has also worked as a successful label songwriter and demo/commercial jingle singer. The team’s first official broadcast takes place tomorrow (7/29) from 5:30 to 10 a.m. on 95.5 The Wolf.

Cumulus Senior VP of Programming, Jan Jeffries comments, “A nation-wide search was conducted over several months for the perfect complement to round out the cast of WSM-FM’s The Wake Up With The Wolf Show. Rick, Beth, Tim and Ashley remind me of a modern-day version of the legendary TV series Cheers. Each personality on the show is distinctly different, making for an unpredictable and consistently entertaining morning show.  We are extremely enthusiastic to kick off mornings each day with this highly talented group.”

“The team offers something for everyone to like,” stated Russ Penuell, Program Director of 95.5 The Wolf (WSM-FM). “It’s a distinctive team that offers a variety of fresh perspective to get your morning going…like that first freshed-brewed cup of coffee.”
