Joy Proft

Northshire Communications modern rock WEQX Albany (102.7) weekend personality Joy Proft assumes middays, effective May 25. Proft replaces Ryan Bushee, who exits for a full-time job outside of the industry but will continue to host the Sunday nightly local music show “EQXposure.”

“Joy has proven her ability to accept a challenge and exceed expectations. Immediately upon her return to the airwaves, she implemented a feature called ‘Sunday Brunch w/ Joy,’ where she interviews local business owners,” Program Director Jeff Morad said in a release. “It doesn’t get any more EQX than that — a perfect blend of music and support of independent business.”

In related moves, afternoon host Keller adds hosting duties for the “EQX Sunday Rewind,” which was previously hosted by Bushee and station alum Joel Marshall returns for weekends.
