WCOM Bids Farewell to Another Veteran Host

Ann Parrent, who has been with WCOM for nearly all of its eleven years on the air, will produce her last show at Noon Saturday November 7th. For the last six months she has played a terrific blend of standards and jazz as host of “De Lovely,” which replaced Fred Wasser’s “Breathing Room” at that time. Few programmers could have risen to the challenge of following Fred, but Ann was more than successful in doing it. Before “De Lovely,” Ann was the long time host of “This is Easy” on Monday evenings at 7PM. Ann will be missed by both WCOM listeners and her colleagues at the station.

WCOM Bids Farewell to Long Time Host

For over 10 years, WCOM listeners have been entertained by a unique mix of Jazz and Standards on Saturdays at noon.

Fred Wasser’s Breathing Room premiered on November 20, 2004, Fred’s relaxed, casual and informative style made his show a very popular weekly feature on WCOM.

Fred is leaving the area to pursue an opportunity to produce programs for Nevada Public Radio KNPR in Las Vegas, he will be missed. His last show is May 16, 2015.

Ann Parrent host of “This is Easy” will be moving her show to Saturday at noon.

Please join us in wishing Fred the best as he begins his new opportunity.
