- COX MEDIA GROUP Top 40 WBLI/LONG ISLAND will roll out THE COOPER LAWRENCE SHOW, featuring COOPER LAWRENCE and ANTHONY MICHAELS beginning MONDAY morning, JULY 11th.“We’re excited to have COOPER and ANTHONY join us here at 106.1 BLI!” said BLI Dir./Branding and Programming JEREMY RICE. “We’re looking forward to our listeners getting to know them and having them be a big part of the LONG ISLAND community.”A radio veteran known for her own nationally syndicated show (DIAL GLOBAL) aptly named “THE COOPER LAWRENCE SHOW,” LAWRENCE spent four years co-hosting the Big Show with SCOTT and TODD from 6-10a on WPLJ/NEW YORK.
“I am beyond excited to join the incredible COX MEDIA GROUP family and to represent the legendary call letters, BLI,” said LAWRENCE. “What a dream come true to work with JOHN SHEA, JEREMY RICE, NANCY CAMBINO and STEVE SMITH. How thrilling to do mornings on a powerhouse station that has been such a part of the fabric of LONG ISLAND for so long and in the market where I grew up. More women need to run more morning shows, especially with a primarily female audience. In this vein, once again, BLI and the CMG team prove they are trailblazers who are keenly in touch with their audience. To wake up every day with my partner in crime, ANTHONY MICHAELS, and take our show to mornings seems like the perfect culmination of all of our years together. Two words: Game on.”
