WUSN-FM on-air hosts Lisa Dent and Ray Stevens receive "Personality of the Year" award


Ray Stevens and Lisa Dent have won the Country Music Association's major market "Personality of the Year" Award for 2010. Stevens and Dent host the "Lisa Dent & Ramblin' Ray Morning Show" on CBS Radio Chicago's country WUSN-FM (99.5) weekdays from 5 to10 a.m.

The show debuted in that time slot nearly four years ago. "We always want to do a good job for our listeners, the people who get up and go to real jobs every day," said Stevens. "This award is icing on the cake," added Stevens.

The "Lisa Dent & Ramblin' Ray Morning Show' was one of five nominated radio shows selected as finalists in this year's competition. The finalists were then judged by a CMA panel of industry experts who evaluated them on several criteria, including ratings success, community involvement, industry involvement and a sample of their show.

Dent has been with WUSN for eight years and previously won the CMA "Personality of the Year" award as a midday host in 2005. Stevens has been with WUSN for over 17 years. WUSN has an average audience of 1.7 million listeners each week.
