101.3 KDWB, The Twin Cities #1 Hit Music Station, announced today that Drake Webb will be joining “The Dave Ryan Show,” effective immediately. “The Dave Ryan Show” broadcasts weekdays from 6-10 a.m.
“The Dave Ryan Show” is a comedic morning show starring Dave Ryan, a 28-year station veteran, along with Falen and Weather Girl Jenny. Webb will join the team and contribute to the show’s hilarious antics and fun segments such as “War of the Roses” and “Dave’s Dirt,” with the latest entertainment headlines.
Webb joins the Twin Cities area from WKSZ-FM in Green Bay, Wisconsin, where he most recently served as the Night Host and Social Media Manager.
“After a very long search, we knew pretty quickly from Drake’s audition that he was going to fit into the team of Dave Ryan, Falen and Jenny seamlessly,” said Rich Davis, Program Director of 101. 3 KDWB. “He’ll bring the right amount of energy, content and social media skills that we’ve been looking to add to the show. Plus, he’s no stranger to the winters as he is coming from the Frozen Tundra!”
“We looked at people that worked in radio and digital, comics musicians and even considered someone who prints t-shirts for a living! You never know where you’ll find that hidden gem,” said Ryan. “Drake does a lot of things well. His biggest weakness is he can’t print a decent t-shirt.”
“I am super honored and excited to be joining one of the biggest radio stations in the country,” said Webb. “I cannot wait to be working alongside Dave Ryan, Falen and Jenny!”
