As hinted by ALL ACCESS (NET NEWS 2/11), BEASLEY Top 40/Rhythmic WRDW (WIRED 96.5)/PHILADELPHIA has hired, former XHTZ/SAN DIEGO morning man and PAT'S KING OF STEAKS' CHUNKY. BEASLEY/PHILADELPHIA VP/Market Mgr. NATALIE CONNER made the announcement this morning (2/15).
To celebrate, PAT’S KING OF STEAKS is throwing a going away party for their former employee by giving away 96 free cheesesteaks today. CHUNKY jumped into the WIRED 96.5 morning show late last week along with co-host TINGLE.
Also joining the WRDW Morning Show is GHIA, who comes aboard from WBLI/LONG ISLAND.
WRDW PD DAN HUNT commented, "I'm excited to have assembled AMERICA's next great, young morning show. CHUNKY, GHIA, TINGLE and producer JP will give PHILLY a morning show that is real, relevant and local."
Prior to PAT’S KING OF STEAKS, CHUNKY was the morning man at XHTZ/SAN DIEGO and did nights at WNOW/NEW YORK and WKQI/DETROIT. CHUNKY expressed his pleasure saying, "Getting the opportunity to host mornings in a Top-10 market is a dream come true for me. The fact that it is mornings at WIRED 96.5 is icing on the big-ass cake. Special thanks to BRUCE BEASLEY, NATALIE CONNER, DAN HUNT, DOM THEODORE, BILL TANNER, CHRIS ACKERMAN and everyone that has helped and hired me along the way."
GHIA added, "I'm super excited to share a studio with such talented people! Big thank you to the BEASLEY BROADCASTING family for believing in me and giving me my dream job! Now it's time to kick ass in PHILLY!"
