Friday, September 09, 2016 — Cox Media Group (CMG) Atlanta’s 97.1 The River (WSRV-FM/Atlanta), Atlanta’s Classic Hits, is moving English Nick to middays.

Beginning Monday, Sept. 12, a familiar voice will entertain Atlanta in middays, as English Nick shifts from his position as the weeknight host into middays. English Nick has been on weeknights at 97.1 The River since January of this year and previously Nick had been a weekend and fill-in host on The River for four years. Prior to joining CMG in 2011, Nick worked at other Atlanta rock stations including WNNX, 99X and 96 Rock. 

Chris Eagan, Director of Branding and Programming, said, “Nick is a well-known name in the market who is loved by the River audience, and! I’m thrilled to bring him and his English accent (yes, it’s real) to middays!” 

“Monday, Sept. 12 is going to be a great day in Atlanta radio as I get to be part of the soundtrack for the River Workforce,” added Nick. “I’m so excited to be part of the best classic rock crew in town, coming on after Steve Craig in the morning and setting it up for Kaedy Kiely in afternoons.”
