Toledo tunes into brand new radio station

TOLEDO, Ohio (WTVG) — Toledo is tuning into something it hasn’t seen in over a decade, a brand new radio station.

Party 103.3 was launched on September 5, 2022 at 10:33 am and is positioned as “Toledo’s Hits & Throwbacks”.

“We’re playing today’s biggest hits as well as a lot of great music that 419 grew up with that hasn’t played on Toledo radio in years,” says Josh Kelly, director of programs at Toledo station and radio veteran.

According to Party 103.3, the radio station features longtime market personalities “Andrew Z” Zepeda and Demetrius Nicodemus in the morning. Zepeda hosted matinees on iHeartMedia’s “92.5 Kiss-FM” WVKS from 2005 to 2010. He also hosted Cumulus Media’s “100.7 The Vibe” in 2011 and WWM’s “Star 105” in 2012.

“I’m so glad to be back on morning radio,” Zepeda said. “There aren’t many local morning shows in Toledo anymore. It was the perfect time and the perfect situation to come back. Playing a lot of the music that was hot when we were #1!

Party 103.3 says Andrew Z and Demetrius in the Morning will also feature morning radio veterans Steve Reamey and Donny P and more. Other well-known Toledo residents will be involved, including:

  • Drag Queen Sugar Vermonte on her show called Sugar’s Saturday Night Soiree
  • Dude in the 419
  • St. Dave “Ya Favorite Mexican” and Bigg Eddie Bauer formerly of Toledo’s Hot 97
  • DJ Adubb, Toledo’s #1 club DJ and former radio personality

“Toledo radio has become very stale, playing the same music, way too many commercials and very little personality,” said Dakota Mendenhal, general manager. “The 103-3 party changed all that.”

Party 103.3 can be listened to on the radio and also via the Party 103.3 app available on IOS and Google Play.
