RADIO ONE Top-40 Rhythmic WPHI (100.3THEBEAT)/PHILADELPHIA has agreed to bring MS.JONES back to mornings starting NOVEMBER 26th. She has been away from the PHILADELPHIA market since 2003. Her simulcast show will originate from EMMIS Top 40/Rhythmic WQHT(HOT97)/NEW YORK.
“I believe in having an all-star line up starting with a competing morning show. It doesn’t get any better than this for PHILADELPHIA radio having MISS JONES a part of the rebuilding of 100.3,” said OM ELROY SMITH. “When MS. JONES came to visit the station recently, I learned quickly the impact that she has in this market.”
“I am extremely excited to be returning to the place I once called home. PHILLY has always remained in my heart and holds the fondest memories of my career,” said MS. JONES.
There will be other changes when MS. JONES returns. The midday show, which currently features LAYLA and POOCH, will feature LAYLA in a solo role, while POOCH will join TOUCH-TONE in the 6-10p evening slot. PD COLBY COLB will remain the afternoon driver.
