Janda Lane has joined Chicago’s WDRV-FM “The Drive.” Roberts will contribute content and information to the station’s afternoon show, hosted by Steve Seaver. She will also provide multifaceted assistance to The Drive’s programming department. Her prior experience includes hosting programs at WEND/Charlotte, NC; WAVF/Charleston, SC; KNDD/Seattle; Soundbreak.com/Los Angeles; 91X/San Diego; and KCRW/ Los Angeles.
On her new role with Hubbard-Chicago, Janda said, “I am thrilled to be joining the legendary WDRV, and am so excited to be collaborating again with Rob Cressman, with whom I share downright amazing radio memories dating back to our time working together at WAVF Charleston. To have the opportunity to join the stellar staff at The Drive and work with Rob again in Chicago — a city that, for me, has always held its own brand of singular magic — is an absolute dream come true. I look forward to connecting with this audience and becoming a part of this awesome community!”
WDRV Program Director, Rob Cressman, said, “We are fortunate and delighted to welcome Janda to the team at The Drive. Her remarkably diverse experience, unique resourcefulness and optimistic outlook provide an ideal match for the Hubbard-Chicago team. As so many broadcast corporations continue to downsize, it is refreshing and energizing to be afforded the opportunity to strengthen our roster with the addition of such a consummate professional.”
