Any remnants of the radio world we once knew, are now officially gone.:

Ryan Seacrest™ scores America's other top 40 bookend: Clear Channel's WHTZ (Z100)/New York, as "On-Air With Ryan Seacrest" conquers 10 a.m.-1 p.m. there starting Monday, Oct. 13. With his arrival, midday goddess Shelley Wade moves to overnights and will now be on from 2-5 a.m., and afternoon dude JJ Kincaid will give the Tri-State area another hour of his audio goodness as his shift will start at 1 p.m., immediately following Seacrest.


"Z100 has been my favorite radio station in New York since I was a kid ... I listen to Elvis all the time," Seacrest said, commenting on Z100 morning guy Elvis Duran and not Elvis Presley. "I can't wait to play the Z100 jingles every workday and continue the 'American Top 40' on the weekends."


“Ryan is arguably one of today’s biggest pop culture icons," said senior VP of programming Tom Poleman. "From his ability to get candid interviews with the hottest Hollywood celebrities to his 'American Idol' fame, he is the perfect addition to Z100. With Elvis Duran and Ryan Seacrest as our lead off personalities, we have the ultimate starting lineup for pop radio."
