VCMG Live, owners of the True Oldies Channel 95.9 FM in the Palm Beaches and 106.9 FM on the Treasure Coast, is proud to announce the return of veteran radio personality Tim Byrd “The Byrdman” to its new morning show, “Byrdman’s Get Up and Go Show.”
Byrd started in radio at the age of 15 and most recently spent 13 years in local radio in South Florida “flying high” on 97.9 FM WRMF, 104.3 FM WEAT and 105.5 FM WOLL. Known as an influencer with his popular podcast and web site Palm Beach Live Work Play and social media following, Byrd has been promoting the best things to do in Palm Beach County. He has been a long-time emcee and charity host for many years throughout South Florida, and his recent partnership with Palm Beach Illustrated magazine has catapulted his visibility.
The True Oldies Channel came on air in October 2017 playing the best oldies of the 1960s and 1970s with John Tesh and Scott Shannon.
The new morning drive show will air 6 to 9 a.m. “Byrdman’s Get Up and Go Show” will feature listener call-ins, live song requests, artist interviews, ticket giveaways, traffic, weather and the greatest hits of all time.
Byrd will also feature celebrities and special guests.
“I am excited to go back on the air with this radio station. It gives me the opportunity to play the songs that I grew up with, some even before I was on the air,” Byrd said. “The energy and fun of this music is a perfect match for my energy level and positive outlook. I look forward to being in touch with my audience daily.”
EVP Market Manager Scott Elberg is excited about the new show.
“I’ve followed Tim’s career going back to his days at WNBC in New York. He’s the consummate professional, and we’re delighted that he’s joining the True Oldies Channel to wake up Palm Beach. It’s an exciting time for our company, and Tim is just the beginning of our growth,” Elberg said.
Tim Byrd’s “Byrdman’s Get Up and Go Show” will go live on Monday, Jan. 6 at 6 a.m. on 95.9 FM and 106.9 FM in Palm Beach County and the Treasure Coast. Learn more at www.trueoldiesfla.com.
