Elk Grove resident Susan Wright takes over afternoon drive slot on K-Hits 101.5

 

 

Elk Grove resident Susan Wright is taking over the afternoon drive slot on K-Hits 101.5, replacing long time Sacramento radio host Big Jim Hall. See press release below.

 

We caught up with Susan yesterday to ask her a few questions about the upcoming change.

 

How long have you lived in Elk Grove. What brought you here?

I bought my first house in Elk Grove about 9 years ago. This area reminded me of a beautiful place in Florida where I used to live. There are so many parks, green areas and trees; it really caught my eye when I was looking for a house. The fact that it is so neighborhood-friendly is a big bonus!

 

How long have you worked in radio? Was it something you wanted to do growing up?
I have worked in radio collectively for 15 years. A few years early in my career and the past several with 101.5 K-Hits. I took a break from radio in the middle and worked as a newscast director in Florida, then moved back to California to work at KMAX TV. I first knew I wanted to work in radio when I was a teenager. I used to call the DJs at the local station and bug them constantly about voice work and radio.

 

Tell us about your new position at K-Hits 101.5, the afternoon drive is a coveted position
I am thrilled to be in the afternoon drive position. It’s a totally different audience and lifestyle group to get to know. The music is fun and dialed in. I just hope I can fill Big Jim Hall’s shoes!

 

You can follow Susan on K-Hits 101.5, weekdays from 2-7 pm. Mid day host Rico Garcia is also an Elk Grove resident.
