Jason Kidd is the new morning drive host for Classic Hits station 94.7 (WIAD-FM) in Washington, DC. He can be heard weekdays from 6:00 a.m. to 10:00 a.m. ET. Kidd joins 94.7 WIAD from WRQX in Washington, DC, where he’s hosted afternoon drive since 2016. Previously, Kidd held Program Director roles at Entercom’s sister station WPGC 95.5 FM in Washington, DC, WQSR and WWMX in Baltimore, KQBT in Austin, TX, WKST in Pittsburgh, and WWHT in Syracuse, NY.
“Jason’s boundless energy and local connection to the DC market made him a strong candidate early in the search process,” said Phil Zachary, Senior Vice President and Market Manager, Entercom Washington, DC. “Once we had the opportunity to meet and discuss his innovative ideas, there was no doubt that Jason was ideally suited to host mornings on The Drive.”
“I couldn’t be more excited to reunite with Steve Davis [Vice President of Programming, Entercom Washington, DC] and the entire team at Entercom Washington, DC,” said Kidd. “Special thanks to Phil Zachary, Bob Philips [Chief Revenue Officer and Regional President, Entercom], and Pat Paxton [President of Programming, Entercom] for this amazing opportunity to make the move across town to be back home at Entercom Washington, DC.”
