COX MEDIA Top 40/Rhythmic WPYO (POWER 95.3)/ORLANDO has brought back MARC 'DJ NAILZ' DIXON to join the morning show as co-host, succeeding OBIE DIAZ, who has shifted to morning co-host down the hall at sister station Country WWKA(K92). (Net News 9/27) DIXON began his radio career as an intern at WPYO and worked his way to hosting the night show and was then promoted to nights at COX MEDIA Urban WEDR (99 JAMZ)/MIAMI. DIXON has spent the last two years at WEDR.
DIXON commented, "ORLANDO is a city that I love so much and it has showed me much love back. I'm excited to return to the station that gave me my first shot on the air, with the PD who gave me that first shot! Doing nights at WEDR has been a dream job for me and now I have the opportunity to do a morning show!?!? Let the games begin!"
WPYO, WWKA, WCFB and WCFB-HD2 Operations Dir. STEVIE DEMANN added, "I am super excited to welcome DJ NAILZ back to the POWER 95.3 family. DJ NAILZ is an amazing talent who is passionate about our business, a student of the game, and a great executor. His presence in mornings alongside LIL’ SHAWN and ESTEE - and their relationship with the POWER audience - will bring an exciting, energetic, lifestyle-driven Hip Hop show to mornings on POWER 95.3.
COX MEDIA VP/Radio Programming STEVE SMITH also commented, "With a lot of hard work and street presence, DJ NAILZ has more than earned this high profile position on ORLANDO's only Hip Hop outlet."
