Karen Carson Officially Gets Fresh/WWFS Midday Shift

Updating a story we reported earlier this week, CBS Radio made it official yesterday hiring veteran DJ Karen Carson at WWFS/Fresh 102.7.

Carson takes over the midday shift (10 a.m. to 3 p.m.) vacated by Heather Walters who left the station last week.

Carson starts at Fresh on February 7.

She comes to Fresh after many years at WLTW/Lite FM. At her most recent stint with the Clear Channel powerhouse, Carson was co-host of the morning show from 2007 to 2009.

“I am thrilled to become a part of CBS Radio and the team at Fresh.  I am even more thrilled to be working once again for program director Jim Ryan,” Carson said in a statement, “He has given me more opportunities in New York Radio than anyone and he is great to work for.  I love his vision for Fresh and can’t wait to be a part of it.”

Karen Carson Reportedly Leaving ‘Lite’ for ‘Fresh’

Veteran New York DJ Karen Carson has reportedly left her on-air position with WLTW/Lite FM. Radio-info.com reports Carson is joining WWFS-FM/Fresh 102.7.

It marks a reunion for Carson and her former Lite FM boss Jim Ryan, now the program director at Fresh.

FishbowlNY attempted to reach Ryan for a comment.

Carson has been a mainstay at Lite FM since 1996. The accomplished voice-over artist has also done shifts at Classic Rocker WAXQ/Q104.3  and middays at the former “Big 105.1″/WBIX. 

In 2009, Carson began splitting her time between New York and Los Angeles when she was named midday host at KOST.(She is still listed on their website.) 

Last week, Heather Walters left her midday shift at Fresh.
