iHeartMedia Seattle’s KUBE 93.3 Announces the Debut of “The Wake Up Show”
New Morning Show Hosted by On-Air Favorites Strawberry, Lizette Love, Jenna, and DJ Supa Sam
SEATTLE – September 27, 2018 – KUBE 93.3, Seattle’s #1 for Hip Hop, announced today the debut of The Wake Up Show, effective October 1. The Wake Up Show will broadcast weekdays from 6 a.m. to 10 a.m.
The Wake Up Show brings together a dynamic line-up of on-air personalities, who will help capture what hip-hop sounds like for Seattle. On-air personalities, Strawberry, Lizette Love, Jenna and DJ Supa Sam will cover the latest hip-hop related headlines, touching on a range of music and entertainment news.
"I’m thrilled to join KUBE 93.3. As a redhead from Northern California, it's going to be nice not to have to worry about getting sunburnt for once,” said Strawberry. “As a hip-hop fan, I can't believe someone is actually handing me the keys to this legendary station. This is truly an opportunity of a lifetime, now watch us work."
“It’s a dream come true to get the opportunity to be a part of an amazing team on a legendary station like KUBE,” said Lizette Love. “I’m super excited to join Strawberry, my new cool girl Jenna, and the wickedly talented Supa Sam to help wake this town up.”
“In the few months since the re-launch, Seattle listeners have responded passionately to the return of KUBE and we’re creating noise on-air, online, and on the streets,” said Mark Adams, Program Director for KUBE 93.3. “With the addition of these personalities to anchor our mornings, I’m confident The Wake Up Show is going to shake things up.”
Strawberry makes the move to the Pacific Northwest from KMVQ in San Francisco, California and has previously anchored mornings both at iHeartMedia’s San Francisco’s Wild 94.9 and KALV in Phoenix, Arizona. Lizette Love joins the KUBE team from iHeartMedia Nashville, where she was midday host and music director for 101.1 The Beat. Her previous stops include iHeartMedia Monterey’s 102.5 KDON and iHeartMedia Ft. Myer’s 105.5 The Beat. Jenna takes on the dual role as on-air personality and morning show producer, after having most recently produced the Marcus & Sandy Morning Show for Star 101.3 as well as on-air personality for 106.1 KMEL. DJ Supa Sam is a Seattle mix show legend and doubles his morning show duties as the official in-stadium DJ for the Seattle Seahawks.
