Former Mix 94.7 and 105.3 The Fringe morning co-host Sandy McIlree has landed a new gig – and it’s a long, long way from Austin.

More than 1,000 miles away in Ohio, to be exact.

Cincinnati radio station Mix 94.9 announced Wednesday that McIlree, who spent nearly two decades on the air in Austin, is set to join its morning team.

McIlree shared the news on Twitter, saying, “So it begins. So grateful.”

“I’m excited to have talent of Sandy’s caliber join the team,” Mike Fredrick, an executive with station owner Hubbard Interactive, told industry website All Access. “We’re committed to having strong multi-faceted morning shows on all of our properties.”

After leaving Mix 94.7 in late 2013, McIlree and Hager eventually resurfaced on 105.3 The Fringe in 2014. McIlree departed their new on-air home in early 2015, leaving Hager behind.

Hager later left the station, too, and is now out of the radio business.
