Saturday morning AM radio sensation The Engine, which airs on NewsRadio 560 WHYN is set to take the FM airwaves by storm. Today, February 20, the Clear Channel Entertainment Group in Springfield announced that its spinoff, The Engine: Sunday Edition, will air on Clear Channel's FM properties, Mix 93.1 and WRNX KIX 100.9, starting Sunday, February 23 at 6:30 a.m.

Hosted by Thom Fox and Angela Lussier, partners at West Springfield, Mass.-based consultancy the BrunoFox Group, the show focuses on entrepreneurs and entrepreneurship in Western Massachusetts, including interviews with business owners, local politicians, community leaders, and people making a difference, according to a press release emailed to the Springfield Entrepreneurship Examiner.

"When Clear Channel management asked us to bring the show to the FM stations, we were excited by the impact it could make," Fox said in the press release. "We often hear that nothing is happening to make Western Massachusetts a better community. We know that isn’t the case and love this show because it’s a great way to spotlight the stories of those who are doing something."

The Engine: Sunday Edition will feature a new two-minute segment called "Pitch Yourself." Local job seekers will have the opportunity to pitch their skills and abilities to business owners. "A lot of people are trying to stand out and be found by employers. Our show is all about supporting our community, and we thought giving two minutes away to someone who is brave enough to come in and ask for a job over the air would be a great segment," Lussier said.

Past guests of the original show have included Dora Robinson, Executive Director of United Way of Pioneer Valley; Delcie Bean, CEO of Paragus IT and Tech Foundry; Michael Fenton, Springfield City Council President; and Suzanne Larocque and Allison Biggs of the Business Betties.

The Engine: Sunday Edition, like its Saturday counterpart, will benefit Junior Achievement of Western Massachusetts. Both Lussier and Fox are Junior Achievement board members.
