Saturday Night 80’s Takeover

She really is a steel-town girl on a Saturday night!

Middletown native Cindy Patrick is bringing a new show to Warm 98.5… The Saturday Night 80’s Takeover!

From 7-10 pm every Saturday, Cindy highlights the best of the decade: the music, the memories, and the many, many hairstyles!

There’s something for everyone -whether you lived in the 80’s, were born in the 80’s, or just like the 80’s!

Cindy Patrick’s love affair with radio began as a teen, and that passion has led to a 25+ year career in broadcasting. In 1992, Cindy graduated from broadcasting school and immediately landed a job as night jock at the former WIMJ-FM in Cincinnati. After stints at WGRR and WHIO, Cindy moved from the area but continued her career at several stations, most notably WJMK-FM/Chicago as Music Director. In 2013, Cindy returned to the tristate and Cincinnati radio, landing at WRRM-FM, where she serves as Promotions Director, Assistant Program Director, and hostess of “The Saturday Night 80s Takeover.”
