New York, NY – April 10, 2018 – Westwood One, the largest audio network in the U.S., announces the launch of Jayde, an exciting new syndicated radio show starring popular WPLJ-FM/NY, Westwood One Backstage, and television personality Jayde Donovan. Jayde is launching April 14, 2018 on more than 50 radio stations, including WPLJ-FM/NY, KLIF-FM/ Dallas, KRBE-FM/Houston, and WWWQ-FM/Atlanta.

Jayde is an upbeat, fun, and empowering show built for Saturday mornings to target the fierce, fabulous women who are doing it all — even if that means they are still wearing yesterday’s make-up while driving carpool to soccer practice. The show is a mix of interviews with celebrity moms, real life stories that inspire, and great music, all creating the perfect cocktail for a young, fresh, and inspired female-driven radio show. The guys will love it, too, because there’s a little something for everyone with Jayde.

“Jayde is a dynamic, fierce, and authentic storyteller – and as a parent, she’s relatable to women everywhere trying to manage and balance life’s demands,” said Suzanne Grimes, EVP Corporate Marketing, Cumulus Media and President, Westwood One. “Our goal with this new show is to empower and embolden women to feel good and be confident in who they are. Jayde is the perfect personality to deliver this important message.”

“I grew up feeling inspired by strong women; I wouldn’t be where I am today if it weren’t for them,” said Donovan. “I continue to admire women who step up, create and force change. I feel very strongly about bringing to light the misconceptions of what it means to ‘have it all together.’ Women put too much pressure on themselves, and that’s what I am here for — to keep it real. My goal with this platform is to reach people from all walks of life, encourage them to be their best self, and remind them to have fun on this journey no matter what life throws at you. I can’t wait to get started!”
