NEWS25 begins providing news for Regent radio stations

As you drove in to work this morning, you might have noticed new but oddly familiar voices giving you the latest news on your favorite radio station.

And no, it wasn't your imagination.

NEWS25's Jon Chrisos and Whitney Ray have begun providing news for Regent Communications' Evansville stations WKDQ, WGBF (AM and FM), WJLT and WDKS.

Chrisos and Ray are the co-anchors of NEWS25's morning newscast, NEWS25 Daybreak, and Ray also anchors the station's new midday program, The Friday Show.

But NEWS25's other anchors, too, will join in as needed, according to NEWS25's news director, Mark Glover. "The primary spot will be mornings, so Jon and Whitney will be the main anchors," he explained. "However, others will be on as news happens."

Today wasn't the first time, however, that NEWS25's coverage has been carried on the radio in the area. Regent's Owensboro stations, WBKR and WOMI, have been airing the TV station's news coverage for over a month, and Glover likes how the new partnership is working out.

"We're excited to partner with all of the Regent stations," he said.
