ATLANTA, GA January 8, 2021 — CUMULUS MEDIA announces that Country radio personality Jason Pullman joins New Country 101-FIVE/WKHX-FM in Atlanta, GA, as On-Air Host, Middays.

Pullman also guest-starred on ABC-TV’s “Nashville”. While speaking to Leesburg, GA’s Luke Bryan, the Country superstar turned the tables to ask Pullman about his radio aspirations, to which he replied: “I want to bring realness, authenticity, kindness and genuineness to my audience. I want people to feel comfortable having me come into their lives and consider me a part of their family.”
Sean Shannon, Vice President/Market Manager, Cumulus Atlanta, said: “Jason is about as Atlanta as it gets. We’re thrilled to have him come home and join our team.”
Mike Moore, Program Director, New Country 101-FIVE/WKHX-FM, noted: “Jason has a long-standing relationship with Country music fans and the community in Atlanta, and I am very excited to have him join our team. I have no doubt he will bring an incredible level of energy and entertainment to Middays on New Country 101-FIVE!”
Pullman commented: “It’s incredible to finally be back home. Hosting Middays on my hometown radio station New Country 101-FIVE is yet another dream come true. I can’t wait to see you at Truist Park, Ameris Bank Amphitheatre, or just shopping at Publix.”
