NEW YORK, NY – June 26, 2023 – Audacy has elevated Susan Richard to top-of-the-hour morning news anchor on 1010/92.3 WINS (WINS-AM/92.3 FM) in New York. Richard will be the third person to anchor morning drive and the first woman to hold the position in the station’s 58-year history.
“Nothing says New York like 1010 WINS, and as both a life-long New Yorker and 25-year WINS veteran, I am thrilled and grateful to be the first woman chosen to fill this key on-air role,” said Richard. “The news watch never stops, and I look forward to serving our listeners in the city I know and love with the continuing commitment to broadcast excellence embodied by our entire staff.”
“Not only is Susan a quintessential New Yorker and a brilliant anchor and journalist, but she will also forever serve as an inspiration and beacon of empowerment for all women who aspire to reach the highest on-air levels in the industry,” said Ivan Lee, Brand Manager, 1010/92.3 WINS. “We are beyond thrilled for her and this history-making moment.”
