Dee Dee Renee NEW Midday Host at Kiss 103.1 in Columbia, South Carolina

CUMULUS MEDIA announces that it has added two new live and local personality-driven shows to WLXC-FM/Kiss 103.1’s weekday programming schedule. Top Columbia, SC, radio personality, Dee Dee Renee, has joined WLXC-FM/Kiss 103.1 as Host of Middays. She can be heard Monday through Friday from 10:00am-3:00pm, followed by Chris Connors in Afternoon Drive from 3:00pm-7:00pm. Connors, who moves from Middays, is also Program Director of WLXC-FM/Kiss 103.1. The station’s popular morning show, Rick and Sasha, will continue to kick off each weekday from 6:00am-10:00am. WLXC-FM/Kiss 103.1’s exciting new on-air lineup debuts on Tuesday, September 8th.

Dee Dee Renee joins Cumulus Columbia from WWDM-FM in Columbia, where she was a popular midday personality. Prior to that, she was co-host of the nationally syndicated The Doug Banks Radio Show for American Urban Radio Network.

Tammy O’Dell, Vice President/Market Manager, Cumulus Columbia, SC, said: “Dee Dee Renee has captivated daytime audiences in Columbia for the past eight years. A single mother of four, including twin girls entering their second year of college, her story is that of working women everywhere. Dee Dee’s amazing energy, passion and dedication to her craft and to her audience is unmatched. She’s a winner and a welcomed addition to our growing staff.”

Chris Connors, Program Director and Host, Afternoon Drive, WLXC-FM, noted: “We’re still putting the pieces of this puzzle together. Dee Dee is going to be an integral part of our plan to captivate and entertain the Columbia audience for years to come. I’d much rather compete with her than against her, so needless to say, I’m excited to have her on our team. I look forward to reaching our goals together and to accomplishing even more amazing things in the future.”

Dee Dee Renee commented: “Radio has been my passion for 30 years. Covid has taken a toll on a lot of people. Knowing that, I realize people need some joy and laughter at least a few hours out of the day. Even I need that. I’m looking forward to talking and reconnecting with my radio family. Radio is my love, my passion, and after God and my family… It’s my LIFE!”
