It was less than seven months ago when Richmonders said farewell to radio personalities Bill Bevins and Shelly Perkins, who left Lite 98 after 13 years. But the popular duo will soon be back on the air.

The Soft AC Morning Show will be broadcast in the Richmond area on Easy 100.9 FM starting later this summer and will feature Bevins and Perkins, according to an announcement today from broadcasting and marketing company SummitMedia LLC.

The station will target adults ages 35 and older, with “relaxing, refreshing music,” according to the announcement.

The program director, Buddy Van Arsdale, said the show “will be bigger and better than ever.”

“We will be putting the show on the air live soon, and the first person to hear them live on the air and call in will win $5,000. Listeners will need to tune in to Easy 100.9 every day and listen for clues,” Van Arsdale wrote.
