Legendary Motor City radio veteran, John Mason and the ultimate party starter, Angie Starr are the perfect combination to take over mornings in the Motor City.
MASON & STARR Detroit’s New Morning Show will be a show all about Detroit and the lives of our incredible listeners,” said Mason. “We will have fun, play lots of Smooth R&B and Old School music, and have really cool giveaways. Tune in weekday mornings to hear the REAL Detroit!”
“I was born and raised in Detroit so I’m excited to partner with Mason in bringing fun, information and positive energy to morning radio in the Motor City,” said Starr.
“It’s a privilege to welcome the legendary Mason and Angie Starr back to mornings in Detroit,” said Zannie Glover, Program Director of Beasley Media Group’s 105.9 KISS-FM and 105.1 The BOUNCE. “I am most excited for our KISS-FM listeners. Ask anybody in Detroit and they’ll tell you Mason is The MAN!
“Now more than ever, familiar, genuine voices are local radio’s strongest asset,” said Beasley Media Group Vice President of Content and Detroit Director of Detroit Programming, Scott Jameson. “Mason’s brand equity, along with Angie’s infectious energy and authenticity will jump start the day for 105.9 KISS-FM!”
John Mason was born in Cleveland, Ohio where he first started his radio career, but has been doing radio here in Detroit for thirty-plus years and calls The D his home. Mason is also the public address announcer for Detroit Pistons home games! He has become nationally recognized for his public address at Detroit Pistons home games and was selected in 2007 for the NBA All-Star game held in Las Vegas, Nevada. He also was the first ever arena announcer to be selected to an All-Star game.
With previous morning show experience, Mason’s show is different in variety versus other radio shows. He protrudes a different spin on famous music artist’s careers providing an intriguing story and talks about beneficial information to the Detroit community from politics to sports. He has made a mark and established a reputation in the city for his charitable contributions and direct involvement with his listening audience. Mason has also won a local television Emmy Award for a video music show on the NBC local affiliate WDIV Local 4, Detroit and was recently featured in an article in Sports Illustrated for his work with the Detroit Pistons.
