There's a new voice in town on the radio! Have you listened to the brand new night show host on 103.3 KISS FM? His name is "Huggie", and there's quite a story behind his hiring.

"Huggie" (Dan Amsden) spent two weeks on the streets of the Treasure Valley dressed up in various costumes with signs asking people to contact the radio station and encourage KISS FM to give him a job. Well, it worked out for him. Program Director and Morning Show Host KekeLuv hired him! He's now hosting Monday through Friday from 7 p.m. to midnight. Here he is dressed up like a Twinkie. Why not? Hey, it got him a job!!! I admire that. Love his spunk!

"Huggie" brings some terrific qualities to our radio station. First, he's a very likable guy, has also been a producer, songwriter, and has worked at a radio station in a very competitive environment. After seeing him in a taco suit on a street corner in Nampa, he obviously isn't afraid to work hard to promote our radio station!" - KekeLuv, 103.3 KISS FM Program Director

"Huggie" is on the air now, tune in weeknights and check him out!
