The Journey’s program director and morning show host Danae Songy was promoted to general manager following the departure of Michael Agee to a radio station in Washington, D.C.
The Journey listeners have said they appreciate the fact that the station will be in the hands of someone who has been with The Journey for years and whose voice they’ve come to love in the morning.
“I do not take this opportunity lightly and welcome prayers as I make this transition,” Songy said.
Even before Agee’s departure, Songy was chosen by Christian Music Broadcasters to be a part of their new mentorship program. She was paired with another female manager who knows the challenges of radio station leadership. Songy said she believes that was only the beginning of God’s promise to equip her to carry on the ministry of The Journey in her new position.
“Thanks to Mike’s leadership, The Journey is looking to hire a music director for the first time,” says Songy. “This individual will ensure all on-air communication is aligned with the station’s mission as well as formulate strategies for attracting, retaining and growing The Journey’s listening audience.”
Songy joined 88.3 The Journey in August 2014. She attended Southwestern Adventist University from 2007-09.
Her husband, Jerrod, is a pastor and works at Texas Conference of Seventh-day Adventists.
Songy is from Southern California but she’s lived all across the nation, even Hawaii for a year.
She’s worked in radio in Texas and Michigan, in the classical and Christian formats. On the side she’s a personal trainer and a corrective exercise specialist. Her other hobbies include dogs, horses and teaching acrobatic aerial silks.
A 1984 graduate of SWAU, Agee has spent almost years in professional radio, 20 of those managing Christian radio station KTSY in Idaho.
