Yesterday we broke the news…
Bola Ray has joined the newly established Accra-based station, Starr FM, enewsgh.com can confirm.
The former JOY FM evening drive host, who left the station few weeks ago, is part of a crack core of presenters recruited to ensure the station finds its feet.
He is joining a team that also includes William Nanka Bruce, also known as DJ Blow, and who left his position at YFM weeks ago, Dennis Mirpuri, formerly of JOY FM, Pravda Radio, and until recently Power 103.5 FM, which has since morphed into the new station.

Other big names include Nii Ayi Tagoe, Kweku Obeng Adjei, all former employees of JOY FM, as well as Who Wants to be Rich host Kafui Dey.
The station we can also tell you is owned by Former Finance Minister, Kwabena Duffour, whose other interests include Unibank, the Heritage Newspaper, and Star Assurance among other units.
Other big shots joining the team include Allo Tigo, host, Jon Germain, former JOY FM, and current BBC Accra Correspondent, Sammy Darko, former JOY FM presenter and programmes head Cox Tamakloe, Elvis Adjetey, Henry Asante Twum, Patrick Ayumu, former Business news presenter at JOY FM, Paa Kwesi Asare, Seth Gyapong, and Jackie Ankrah among others.
