They're back. Steve McCoy and Vikki Locke, Atlanta radio's dynamic duo, will return as morning hosts on B98.5FM's 5:00 – 10:00 a.m. timeslot.
After nearly an eight month hiatus, Steve & Vikki will brighten up Atlantans' dreaded morning commute beginning July 1.
"B98.5FM places great emphasis on being a good neighbor in the community we serve," said Chris Wegmann, market manager for Cox Radio Atlanta. "It's rare to find personalities that have done as much for Atlanta as Steve & Vikki. Their light-hearted fun will usher in a new era for B98.5FM."
For more than 17 years, Steve & Vikki entertained Atlantans with laughter, crazy contests and breaking news, becoming great community neighbors and household names along the way. With a slight turn of the dial, Steve & Vikki fans will once again wake up to their favorite radio friends.
Fans will recognize signature Steve & Vikki contests and community causes and be in store for new, exciting events and morning discussions.
"The excitement and thrill of the new opportunity that awaits Vikki and me at B98.5FM and joining Cox Radio is second only to the happiness we feel to be back on morning radio in Atlanta," says Steve. "We love this town. It's where we belong, and we can hardly wait to once again wake up our listeners – who we have always thought of as our "Family." We have missed them!"
"I am thrilled to be back on the air in Atlanta, my home, and with Steve, my radio partner of 18 years," says Vikki, "A big thank you to Atlanta for all of your support these past few months."
B98.5FM is a sister station of WSB AM.
This tells me they did not leave Star 94 after-all on their own accord!
