Compass Media Networks announces the addition of Cox Media Group “Power 106.1” in Jacksonville, to the “DeDe in the Morning” family from 5AM -10AM weekdays and Saturday mornings with DeDe’s Weekend Kickback.

Elroy Smith, CMG Director of Branding and Programming for Orlando & Jacksonville, states “I have followed DeDe’s career since her days in Chicago at Windy 100.3 and her riveting co-anchoring of the syndicated show with the late Doug Banks. To see her evolution brings me so much joy. She is charismatic, relatable to her core audience, sassy, honest, vulnerable, fun, and the epitome of a professional. Power 106.1 is excited to be one of the many affiliates airing such a great morning show.”

DeDe McGuire, host of DeDe in the Morning, says “It has been a dream of mine to be back in Jacksonville and here we are. Thank you, Elroy Smith and CMG, for your belief in our show. We can’t wait to join the Power 106.1 family and are ready to make Jacksonville laugh out loud every morning.”
