Julian Nieh Finds A New Radio Home in Phoenix at 104.7 Kiss FM
Julian, formerly known as The Night Ninja moves to Phoenix to take over the afternoons/early evenings at Clear Channel’s Top 40 station 104.7 Kiss FM (KZZI). Julian will host the 4:00 pm to 9:00 pm program. Julian most recently hosted mornings at CBS Radio’s Top 40 B96 (WBBM-FM) with co-host J Niice.
Clear Channel Phoenix vice president Steve Geoffries says, “We have great talent in Phoenix that keeps growing. Adding a unique talent like this creates a tremendous drive time lineup of Johnjay and Rich in the mornings and Julian during the afternoons. Julian has been on our radar for quite some time. He’s a tremendous talent who brings major market experience in multiple dayparts to our already talented team at ‘Kiss FM’ Phoenix.”
Julian Nieh came to Chicago in the summer of 2006, taking over the evening shift on B96. In January 2009, Julian was paired up with the station's midday personality Jamar "J Niice" McNeil and they became the new B96 morning show hosts by replacing Chicago radio legends Eddie & Jobo. After a few months the show became one of the top rated morning shows in Chicago. Prior to coming to Chicago, Julian Nieh was the night host at Hot 99.5 (WIHT) in his native Washington, D.C., where J Niice was a host as well, although they did not work together as a team. J Niice continues to host the morning "J-Show" with co-host Showbiz Shelly at B-96.
Julian and J Niice talk about working together as a team at the 2:15 mark
