WPLJ, New York Inks Race Taylor to New Deal. Midday personality Race Taylor signs a multi-year contract extension with Cumulus Media to remain with New York's hot AC "95.5 PLJ." The station notes that Taylor has been part of the "95.5 PLJ" on-air team since October 1999. Prior to that, he hosted PM drive and was assistant program director for "Mix 102.9" KDMX, Dallas/Fort Worth, and was PM drive host and APD "Q102" WKRQ, Cincinnati. He's also been a prominent voice on ABC Television for many years where he's heard daily on "The View," "The Chew," "General Hospital," and "Jimmy Kimmel Live." Taylor's voice work also airs regularly on primetime television shows including: "Dancing With The Stars," "The Middle," "Modern Family," "The Bachelor," "Castle," "Scandal," "Nashville" and many others. WPLJ program director Gillette states, "In the hallways, Race is the definition of 'professional,' 'gentleman' and 'esteemed colleague.' On the air, he is the consummate communicator. He actually may have invented the concept of engagement. He can take the simplest break and make it a drop the mic moment. We're thrilled to continue our partnership. He's been such an important part of this brand's heritage and is an even more important part of 95.5 PLJ's future."
