Smasher named co-host at KOOL-FM


KOOL-FMSmasher has inked a deal with CBS Radio’s 94.5 KOOL-FM Phoenix to serve as co-host of the station’s morning show alongside Maria Knight.  The KOOL Morning Show with Smasher & Maria can be heard weekdays from 5:30 AM to 10 AM.

Smasher joined the weekend staff of CBS Radio Phoenix in 2013, and has been working with Maria since earlier this year.  His prior experience includes stints in San Francisco, Chicago, Charlotte and Sacramento.

“In the short time that Smasher and Maria have been hosting mornings at KOOL-FM, it’s become clear they are a perfect match to bring listeners an exciting and fun show each weekday morning,” said KOOL-FM Program Director Dave Shakes.  “We see an opportunity for our morning show to continue to grow, adding listeners from the station’s core 25 to 54 demographic.”

“This is an exciting time for KOOL,” said Maria Knight.  “I am so glad that Smasher and I have teamed up to wake up the Valley.  Now if I could just get him to make my coffee.”
