(MARCH 2012) – Envision Radio Networks® is proud to debut The Pit, a three-hour classic metal show that engulfs listeners in the metal scene from the ‘80s and early ‘90s.

The Pit is hosted by Cutter, a staple in NE Wisconsin radio, who has spent 15 years on the air at Active Rock and Mainstream Rock radio. The Pit is produced by veteran Program Director Jason Hillery, who says: “When it comes to metal, Cutter knows what’s up. He completely lives the lifestyle, and his knowledge of the scene is the best in the biz.”

Each weekend, The Pit relives the glory days of classic metal and features music from the artists who built this explosive genre, including Megadeth, Iron Maiden, Pantera, Metallica, Anthrax, Judas Priest, Korn, Slayer and Marilyn Manson. Cutter stops down from the nostalgia just long enough to highlight new metal in a weekly “Then and Now” segment and to interview the metal greats that helped mold the speaker-shredding musical movement, such as Rob Halford of Judas Priest, Dave Ellefson of Megadeth, and George Lynch of Dokken.

We found Envision Radio Networks® President and CEO Danno Wolkoff at the coffee maker, wearing a Metalshop t-shirt and refilling his Anthrax mug. When asked for comment, Danno said “What can I say? I love metal music. Whether it’s Charlie Kendall, Full Metal Jackie and now Cutter from The Pit, if they’re playing metal then I’m banging my head!” Danno also added that there are hidden messages to be found, if you play this quote backwards.

The Pit can be heard every Saturday night on Green Bay’s 93Rock WRQE-FM. Stations interested in more information visit www.envisionradio.com or contact Melissa Bachtel at 216-831-3761 or melissab@envisionradio.com.
