Louisville, KY. – NewsRadio 84WHAS (840 AM) announced the
appointment of Mandy Connell as its new 9AM-12Nn talk show host.
A 14 year radio veteran, Connell has entertained and informed audiences in several Florida
cities, including Gainesville and Orlando. For the last five years, she has served Southwest
Florida listeners as morning show host on 1240/1270 WINK/WNOG and 92.5 Fox News Radio
in Ft. Myers/Naples.

and talked to many talented people. Mandy really stood out for her energy, enthusiasm, and
dedication to giving listeners an interesting, informative, and engaging radio program. We
believe she will really connect with the 84WHAS audience.”

and well-read. We’re confident she will uphold the tradition of exceptional performance our
listeners have come to expect.”
Commenting on her new appointment, Mandy Connell said, “To say that I am excited is a
massive understatement. Not only do I get to join a heritage radio station like 84WHAS, I get to
live in Louisville, which has more amazing restaurants than I dreamed possible. I couldn’t ask
for a better new home! I can’t wait to dig in, metaphorically and literally.”
