LOS ANGELES--(BUSINESS WIRE)--
Premiere Networks announced today that veteran radio personality Jenn Marino will return to her first passion, rock radio, as she joins international rock icon Nikki Sixx as co-host of Sixx Sense with Nikki Sixx and The Side Show Countdown with Nikki Sixx. Tomorrow, April 3, Marino will make her debut on Sixx Sense, the popular rock music program which reaches 2.9 million weekly listeners on more than 100 stations nationwide (Source: Nielsen Audio, FA'13, Nationwide, Exact Times, Weekly Reach, P 12+), in addition to airing on iHeartRadio. She will join The Side Show Countdown this weekend, April 5 and 6.
Marino, who will appear with Sixx as the featured guests during the Worldwide Radio Summit luncheon at the Hollywood Roosevelt Hotel tomorrow afternoon, previously served as co-host of the popular afternoon program Priestly & Jenn on Baltimore’s WWMX-FM. Prior to joining the station in 2007, she hosted middays on Baltimore/Washington, D.C.’s Rock Alternative WHFS-FM. The Oklahoma City native got her start in radio while in college, and moved on to host various timeslots at 98 Rock/WIYY-FM in Baltimore, Classic Rock KRXO-FM in Oklahoma City and other stations.
“I’m incredibly excited for this insane opportunity,” stated Marino. “I’ve been a fan of Nikki for years, and respect him not only as a radio host, but also as an artist. I look forward to creating something incredible with him and the entire Sixx Sense team. To say this is a dream job is an understatement.”
“From the moment I met Jenn, we had great chemistry,” stated Sixx. “Not only does she have a strong connection to the world of Rock music, but she’s also charming, funny and relatable. I think the audience is going to love her, and I couldn’t be more excited to welcome her to the team!”
Kerri Kasem, who joined Sixx for the launch of Sixx Sense with Nikki Sixx and The Side Show Countdown with Nikki Sixx in February 2010, recently announced her decision to leave the programs. From March 31 through April 2, Sixx Sense featured an on-air tribute to Kasem with highlights from her four years with the program, and a special goodbye video has been posted on www.SixxSense.com. Her final broadcast is tonight.
