Rahman will be joined by Abbey Mauer who has anchored mornings from 5 to 7 am for the past three years. Chief Meteorologist Casanova Nurse and Sports Director Brad Dalton will round out the team.
Rahman was brought on to host/produce the only dedicated news show for Bounce TV. Bounce is Calkins Media’s secondary station in the market. Management made the decision to end the show on October 25th.
“Rahman did a great job and put a lot into the Bounce product. We’d like to take that same energy and enthusiasm and focus it on the prime,” said General Manager Jason Wildenstein.
Rahman was known for hosting the one-time flagship show for Nickelodeon, Splat. He has also spent time as a producer and talent at WAWS and WJXT and started his broadcast career in radio.
“I’m looking forward to this new chapter. I was very attached to Bounce and the format that we created and I hope to take many of these elements along,” said Johnson.
Current evening talent Mika Highsmith, will now anchor the Noon and 5:30 shows and Greg Angel will handle the News at Sunrise.
