PHILADELPHIA, PA – July 24, 2019 – Entercom, a leading media and entertainment company and one of the two largest radio broadcasters in the U.S., today announced a new morning show on US99 (WUSN-FM), Chicago’s #1 Country Station. Chicago-area native Katie Bright and Jason Pullman will host the show with contributions from Erin, weekdays from 5:30 a.m. to 10:00 a.m. CT beginning on August 8.

“We are thrilled to welcome this talented team to US99,” said Jimmy de Castro, Senior Vice President and Market Manager, Entercom Chicago. “The team will bring country music fans an entertaining and informative live, local show that is built for Chicagoland.”

She later transitioned to the WSIX-FM morning show in Nashville.
“I look forward to getting to work with Katie and Erin to create a show that brings the country fans of Chicago a consistent home for their morning commutes,” said Pullman. “I want to bring realness, authenticity, kindness and genuineness to the audience with this new show. I want people to feel comfortable listening and to consider us a part of their family.”
Pullman is a seasoned radio personality with over 15 years of experience. Prior to joining Entercom, Pullman was an on-air host for WUBL-FM in Atlanta starting in 2009.
