Matt Cord Debuts As Co-Host Of New 95.7 Ben FM Morning Show In Philly
January 5, 2017

WBEN (95.7 BEN FM)/Philadelphia officially announces that Philadelphia radio veteran Matt Cord has joined the radio station to host the new BEN FM Morning Show with Matt & Kristen (weekdays 6a-9a). Cord moved from BEN-FMs sister station WMMR, where he was night host. Cords co-host is Kristen Herrmann. Their first show aired Tuesday, January 3rd.

"Coming from WMMR, I know how important and powerful morning radio can be." said Cord. "Moving to mornings on BEN FM is a great opportunity for me to stay with Beasley Media Group and offer another great option for Philly morning radio listeners. Im thrilled to work with Kristen, too. Shes super talented. Were going to have a lot of fun."

Chuck Damico, 95.7 BEN FM Program Director commented, "Matts a total pro. Ive known him my whole career and Im really happy he came to BEN FM. Hes a really great guy. Hes one of us. Hes a Philly guy and he knows and loves New Jersey, too. He and Kristen already have a terrific connection and that will come through on the air. Listening to them will be like hanging out with two of your favorite friends."

Cord held down the night shift at WMMR for eleven years. He was also a member of the WMMR air staff from 1990 to 1998. He returned to WMMR in 2005 after spending seven years as afternoon drive host at alt rock station, WPLY (Y100). Cord is also well known to Philadelphia sports fans and the NBAs greatest athletes for his energetic team introductions and in-game presentations as the Philadelphia 76ers public address announcer, a position hes held for 20 years. Cords move to BEN FM morning drive host will not affect his role with the 76ers.

Herrmann has been a familiar voice in Philadelphia radio for over a decade, most recently as BEN FM's Midday Host (weekdays 9a-2p) and Commercial Production Director. Before joining BEN FM in June of 2012, she spent seven years at WMMR, serving as afternoon drive producer and Sunday morning DJ. Herrmann also works as a freelance voice-over artist (NFL Films, Platos Closet and more) and is a member of Philly Roller Derby (under the alias Ginger Vitis). With Matt Cord and Kristen Herrmans move to mornings, interim morning host and APD Rich DeSisto has returned to his familiar role as Afternoon Drive Host.
