BEASLEY Sports WQAM-A/MIAMI inks DAMON AMENDOLARA to a deal to handle 9p-midnight starting JANUARY 22nd. AMENDOLARA previously handled mornings at ENTERCOM Sports KCSP-A (610 SPORTS)/KANSAS CITY.
GM JOE BELL tells ALL ACCESS that the station's new lineup keeps ORLANDO "BIG O" ALZUGARY in 5-7a, followed by JOE ROSE going solo 7-10a and his former partner JASON JACKSON moving to 2-4p, which moves JIM MANDICH from 2-5p to 4-7p. NEIL ROGERS remains for 10a-2p, while the JACKSON and MANDICH moves fill the gap left when HANK "THE HAMMER" GOLDBERG left the station at the end of last year.
The station is filling 7-9p with DOLPHINS ALL ACCESS, hosted by ex-DOLPHIN TROY DRAYTON and WQAM's JOHN LINDER on MONDAYS and WEDNESDAYS, veteran sportscaster and former DOLPHIN player JIMMY CEFALO and team President JOE BAILEY on TUESDAYS, and BARRY BUETEL from the DOLPHINS media department on FRIDAYS (THURSDAYS are open after the departure of FINS GM RANDY MULLER).
