Dan-Edwards-WGTZAlpha Media Dayton, OH announced today the addition of legendary Miami Valley media personality Dan Edwards to “The Morning Flight,” weekdays from 6 to 9 a.m. on Fly 92.9. Dan is an Emmy award-winning media veteran with over 30 years of experience as an anchor, DJ, photo-journalist, and educator. Though his travels have taken him all over the globe, he and his wife of 29 years are proud to call Dayton home.

“I can’t say how happy I am to be back in the very building I began my radio career on the legendary WING-FM,” Dan stated. “After a satisfying 12 year career in TV as an anchor and reporter at Channel 2, I’m excited to transition back into radio. What’s even more profound is the fact that John King, the current general manger for Fly 92.9, is the same man who gave me my first big break in the business back in 1982!”

King commented, “When Alpha Media entered the Dayton market with the goal of creating truly ‘Live and Local’ radio, I was challenged to find a personality that would not only sound great on air, but one that has deep roots in the community; we couldn’t be happier to find exactly that in Dan.”

Alpha Media Executive VP of Programming, Scott Mahalick added, “Dan brings a charismatic and professional vibe to the airwaves. He is a top notch talent that will help Fly achieve the next level of success!”

The Fly 92.9 Morning Flight will be a music intensive show delivering everything Dayton needs to wake up and get to work. Featuring artists like Maroon 5, John Mellencamp, U2, and Kelly Clarkson, WGTZ boasts the largest music library in the Dayton radio market. Fly 92.9 streams live at FLY929.com and via apps available in the Apple and Android markets.
