Philadelphia radio legend Pierre Robert, who recently celebrated 25 years on Rock icon WMMR/Philadelphia, has re-signed with the station for another four years, extending his run until at least 2010.  The deal also ups Robert's producer, Jason Fehon, from part-time to full-time status. 

"WMMR continues to be the greatest Rock & Roll adventure I've ever embarked on," crows Robert, who has built his relationship with his audience through vivid and colorful communication. "It's incredibly exciting to re-sign with the amazing, magical entity that is 'MMR and to see what's around the next corner," 

"Pierre's legendary personality and his passion for music and the city of Philadelphia personifies what connects 'MMR to our loyal listeners," adds John Fullam, VP/Market Manager for Greater Media, Philadelphia.  "We are thrilled he will remain the keystone of our great lineup for years to come,"

In addition to his relationships with musicians spanning generations, Robert has further solidified his relationship with Philadelphia through his on-going support of local charities and his continued community service. 

"In today's world of automated voice tracking and syndicated, out of market air talent, it is a true testament to Pierre Robert's outstanding ability that he has remained at one station through so many changes in the broadcasting business," says 'MMR PD Bill Weston.

While 'MMR celebrated Robert's recent 25-year anniversary at the station with events in local venues, Pierre will also be presented with a proclamation from Philadelphia City Council live on the air on January 24th.
