WASHINGTON, D.C. --
It’s been two months since CBS Radio first flipped the switch on The Tommy Show
and the budding morning program has never been stronger.
Host Tommy McFLY
and fellow on-air personalities Kelly Collis
and Jen Richer
continue to entertain Washingtonians during their morning commute, with a playful blend of wit, humor, charm, and, of course, news and music.
Chimed McFLY: “Sixty days, and Kelly and Jen keep showing up! It's so unbelievable to come to work with people I genuinely love each day and have the time of our lives wakin' up Washington!”
Since 94.7 Fresh FM
first made the decision to field a new D.C. morning show in May, McFLY & co. have been deftly maneuvering to secure their place among the radio preset buttons of the District’s sometimes choosy listeners. And with ratings rapidly growing, their success speaks for itself.
"That 3:30 alarm is not so bad,” said Collis. “It is a thrill to work with a talented team and in a number 9 media market! I love that my radio mentor has so much energy and passion for the business; I have learned so much from Tommy."
Program highlights for the trio over the first two months have ranged from the regal (Collis chatted with Sarah Ferguson, the Duchess of York
, about her divorce) to the humorous (Michael Lohan
confided in Tommy that Tareq and Michaele Salahis
stiffed him when they rented his condo in Los Angeles) to the personal (Richer shamelessly leveraged her producing power for personal gain to find out if musician Jason Mraz
“I still can't believe we're getting paid for this,” said Richer. “We are having such a blast - it's like playing truth-or-dare with your buddies - every morning!”
