Carey Curelop, Program Director, 101 The Fox said: “We searched the entire country for a partner to add to the wit and listener connection Sparks brings to 101 The Fox mornings. Lux was his match from the minute these two met! She’s funny, clever, honest, and a great entertainer.”
Lux commented: “I am beyond excited to return to radio at 101 The Fox. Once I stepped foot into the studio with Sparks, something just clicked, and I instantly knew this is where I need to be. I am so thankful for Derek Madden, James Kurdziel, Donna Baker, Jim Fox, and Carey Curelop for believing in me and bringing me back to the mic!”
Carey Curelop added: “Doug Medlock knows Kansas City, he knows the Classic Rock audience, and we are incredibly fortunate he made the decision to return to 101 The Fox.”
Doug Medlock remarked: “I’ve been in love with radio since I was a kid. The cool DJs, the music, and the strong connection to the local community. No other media has such a personal relationship with its audience. I’m so excited to be back on 101 The Fox.”
These announcements follow the passing of longtime KCFX host Slacker, a 33-year fixture on Kansas City radio, with the last 16 years at KCFX.
Jim Fox, Operations Manager, Cumulus Kansas City, explained: “We had big shoes to fill after our difficult loss. The addition of Sparks & Lux Mornings and Doug Medlock Afternoons are exactly what this passionate audience expects from 101 The Fox, known for iconic personalities.”
