LINCOLN Oldies WMJX (MAJIC 102.7)/MIAMI today announced that BRUCE KELLY has been named new morning host to replace RICK SHAW, who will exit the station next month, ending an amazing 50-year career on the SOUTH FLORIDA AIRWAVES.
From 2000-06, KELLY was creating and programming the '80s channel on XM SATELLITE RADIO. This marks his return to terrestrial radio, as well as to MIAMI, where he worked at one-time Top 40 96X and also WHYI (Y100). KELLY begins MAY 14, following a huge listener appreciation party for SHAW that will take place at GULFSTREAM PARK on FRIDAY, MAY 11, to benefit THE MAJIC CHILDREN’S FUND.
"We’re very excited to have BRUCE join the MAJIC family," said PD BOB HAMILTON. "It was not easy to find someone who could blend in with our mix of personalities and market history, and BRUCE is the perfect fit."
MAJIC has a history of retaining employees for the long term. Much of their on-air and support staff have worked at the station for 10 to 20 years, a rarity in radio.
