Kiss 98.5 in Buffalo gets a couple of national shows

This is part of a realignment of the top 40 stations from Kiss' owner Audacy.

As part of it, two national shows will be launched on Monday, July 19th. Julia Lepidi, who's based at Chicago's WBBM-FM(B96)will take over the 10a-3p shift, while KNOU(97.1 Now)PM driver Josh Brubaker gets 3-7pm. (They'll also be heard on WPXY in Rochester, but Brubaker gets the 7-11pm shift.) (Kiss' homepage has been updated with pages for both Julia & "Bru".)

Sue O'Neil(who is heard on at doing middays at WTSS(Star 102.5), but does have responsibility for Kiss as well)will be one of Audacy's regional VP's of programming; likewise, WPXY's Mike Danger will be a Regional Brand Manager.

Still unknown, as yet, is what will happen to Greg(who currently does noon to 6 on Kiss).
