ORLANDO, Fla. – JVC Media’s new FLY 103.1 radio station in Orlando debuted its on-air talent roster kicking off the week leading into the Labor Day holiday weekend.

JVC Florida’s director of programming, Stevie DeMann, said the launch of the hottest hits station at the beginning of August was one of many carefully calculated steps leading up to the big reveal.

“Our listeners told us they want a radio station that reflects our diverse market, and the response has been incredible. When choosing an airstaff, it was so important to us to find great talent that knew the market, had experience representing our citizens in the community, and (knew) how to produce A+ content and entertain,” DeMann said.

DeMann has done just that revealing the talented team of hosts and deejays known for their work on legendary stations and podcasts heard throughout Central Florida by millions of listeners.
