John Kelly is the newest addition to the HITS team. John’s nearly 40 year career in broadcasting began in his early teens on a small town station with less power than your everyday household blow dryer! John’s first drive time gig was in 1989 at WKXX in Birmingham Alabama. Following his success and recognition in Birmingham John headed to Tampa where he worked as production director of Mix 96, and then on to successful stints working for Metroplex, Paxon, Jacor/Clear Channel, and Infinity/CBS Radio. John received numerous awards including a Crystal Communicator Award for commercial for production at CBS’s WRBQ FM. The past 5 years have been spent as program director for Cumulus stations in Albany, Des Moines, and Chattanooga. John returned to Florida to join HITS 106 in January of 2016 as our “Afternoon Drive” Host, weekdays from 3 – 7 PM.
