“We are beyond excited to partner with Ken Trahan and his team of professionals to bring the best in prep sports coverage and all sports coverage to 106.1 FM NASH ICON,” said Cumulus Radio Regional Vice President and New Orleans Market Manager Pat Galloway. “This will enhance our audience and marketplace presence at night and on weekends. Cumulus is invested in the New Orleans area and we are making an investment in a winning product.”
Daniels, who has earned Louisiana Sportscaster of the Year multiple times, is looking forward to the new radio home.
“Being on the FM dial is important and it is certainly going to help bring new listeners to the shows,” Daniels said. “We appreciate our loyal listeners of many years and encourage them to make the move with us. Cumulus is a very professional operation.”
Trahan, who has been inducted into three different prep sports Hall of Fames, is thrilled with the move.
“This is an opportunity to brand with one of the elite radio operators in the country,” Trahan said. “Cumulus is a proven commodity with a winning track record. The signal will enhance our ability to reach a broader audience as we continue to grow our product. It will be great to work with Pat Galloway, Wendy Guillie, Paul Cannell and their excellent team at Cumulus New Orleans.”
