WVOC adds Jonathon Rush, Kelly Nash to afternoons


Clear Channel’s News Talk Sports WVOC-FM Columbia, SC says that sister station, Country WCOS-FM’s morning duo Jonathon Rush and Kelly Nash will now host afternoon drive as well—effective immediately.

Rush has been waking up Columbia listeners on music radio stations for over two decades and with Nash will now take their style and political opinions to the afternoon drive at WVOC.  So, they’ll continue hosting The Morning Rush, and now “The Afternoon Rush” as well.

“This is an opportunity I’ve dreamed of for years,” said Rush.  “We can play the world’s greatest music for the greatest music fans in the morning and talk with the most passionate radio listeners every afternoon.”

“I’m very excited to not only expand our audience, but to be able to have two outlets to engage and entertain Columbia’s listeners,” said Nash.  “Pulling the double duty is something that has been done before in radio with great success and we are eager to serve two of the largest radio audiences in the state.”

“News Talk radio is more than just political opinions and interviews with lawmakers.  All news has an element of entertainment to it that makes it entertaining and compelling,” said L.J. Smith, Regional Program Manager, Clear Channel Media and Entertainment.  “Jonathon and Kelly understand the balance between addressing hard hitting issues while keeping listeners engaged in a compelling conversation about today’s most relevant topics.”
