Z100 Names New Co-Host for Elvis Duran’s Morning Show

Elvis Duran finally has his woman!

Bethany Watson is joining Duran’s Z100-based, nationally syndicated morning show. Watson fills the slot vacated by Carolina Bermudez, who left for WLNY’s The Couch at the end of June.

Watson comes to New York by way of Minneapolis. After graduating from the University of Minnesota, where she studied theater and improvisational comedy, Watson was working at a desk job. She decided to to contact her favorite radio show. Expediting her career path, she applied for the co-host position on The Dave Ryan in the Morning Show at KDWB. She remained with the broadcast for more than four years.

“After an exhausting worldwide search, we found her! Bethany brings lots of baggage, but the kind of baggage that makes for a fun, playful and thoughtful co-host,” Duran says. “We can’t wait to introduce her to our listeners Monday morning.”

The Wisconsin native debuts next week to Z100 listeners and more than 40 stations in the country. Fans can also listen via the station’s Website on at IHeartRadio.com and the IHeartRadio mobile app.

“Bethany has great chemistry with Elvis and the entire Morning Show, which will definitely entertain and engage listeners every morning,” Sharon Dastur, Z100 program director, says. “After meeting her for the first time, we could tell within the first five minutes that she’d be a perfect fit for the show. We are thrilled to have Bethany join the team.”
