RADIO ONE Urban WPHI (100.3 THE BEAT)/PHILADELPHIA has tapped CHARAMAGNE THA GOD to be its new morning-driver. Most recently he co-hosted "THE WENDY WILLIAMS EXPERIENCE," which is syndicated through WESTWOOD ONE.
WPHI’s "MORNING BEAT" debuted in JANUARY and replaced MISS JONES. “Doing an all-music morning show with mixer BENT ROC garnered some of the highest ratings that we’ve seen in the last year,” said RADIO ONE OM ELROY SMITH. “We are presently number one with women 18-34 without doing a traditional morning show. CHARLAMAGNE’s commanding personality along with his Internet savvy and his desire to be local will only propel this show to a higher plane."
"Commanding my own morning show in a major market has been one of my dreams,” said CHARLAMAGNE. “This opportunity that has been presented to me just reinforces in my mind that I am walking the path that GOD wants me to walk." Current morning show support members DJ BENT ROC, SHEIK and IZZO will remain with the show.
The new show starts FRIDAY, MAY 1st.
