“We’re excited to grow Dawn’s role with the station with the launch of her new midday show, where she will speak with top local newsmakers for in-depth analysis of stories that affect the Philadelphia region,” said David Yadgaroff, Senior Vice President and Market Manager, Audacy Philadelphia. “Dawn’s show, along with an extra hour of Rich Zeoli, and Dom Giordano’s new program time extends our local content to nine hours, which allows us to best serve our local listeners, while continuing to deliver some of the biggest names on the national stage.”

“I’m grateful to Rich Zeoli and his ‘army’ of loyal listeners for believing in me since I joined the show six years ago,” said Stensland. “I am so proud to work with Audacy and I’m also so thankful for their commitment to showcase a diverse collection of local voices as we engage with people across our region about the issues of the day and the news that impacts us here at home.”

Stensland rose to popularity as a nightly news anchor in 1997 on CBS3 television, co-anchoring with Larry Kane and Ukee Washington. She also co-hosted CBS News Saturday morning nationally for two years. Stensland became the face of Fox29 as main anchor in 2001, where she helped to continually lead ratings on “The 10 O’clock News.” Her Emmy-winning career also includes reporting for WJLPTV “Jersey Matters” since 2013.
