Cox Promotes Kruz To Afternoons In Miami


CMG Miami’s 97.3 The Coast has named weekender Mike Kruz as the afternoon drive host. Kruz will also be the imaging director, producing station imaging and promotions. PD Tom Calococci said, “Mike Kruz stepped up his game. He sounds great on the air, is hard working, and has shown himself to be a very valuable team member. The evolution of The New 97.3 The Coast continues, and South Florida just got a little hotter.”

Kruz started in radio at WJPZ while studying broadcast journalism at Syracuse University. He landed his first full-time radio position in his hometown of Binghamton, NY, at WMRV and WWYL. He's also worked at WVTK in Burlington, VT; WKRZ in Scranton/Wilkes-Barre, Penn.; WIHB in Charleston, SC; and WLYF in Miami. 

Kruz said, "I am super excited to leap into my new position at 97.3 The Coast. It's all about fueling the listener's excitement for the new 97.3, not only day-to-day on the air, but in its overall presentation through imaging. I'm also looking forward to more involvement within the community, while working side-by-side with Tom and the rest of my talented, driven co-workers at The Coast and CMG-Miami. It's game time!"
