WMMR/Philadelphia Adds Brent Porche To Host Overnights
January 24, 2017
It’s rare a radio station goes 8 years in between full-time hires. It’s rarer still that the position is for a full time overnight air talent. Beasley Media Group and heritage rocker WMMR/Philadelphia have announced that Brent Porche is its new overnight air personality.
Still going strong since its 1968 sign-on, WMMR has always employed a live and local personality for its overnight listeners. Porche, who has a decade of experience on the part-time staff, takes the reins from Jacky Bam Bam, recently promoted to the 7-midnight shift. His enthusiasm for rock music of all kinds, his support of the local concert scene and a trusted listener relationship makes him an ideal choice to continue the tradition of live and local, 24/7 Everything That Rocks.
Says Porche, “It’s like a lifelong fan rooting for The Eagles and getting hired to play on the team - with all his favorite players! I’m honored to join Preston & Steve, Pierre Robert, Jaxon, Jacky and all the DJs on such a legendary station.”
Program Director Bill Weston adds, “Brent is a perfect fit for the starting five on WMMR. Great pipes, positive attitude and he gets the listener and client relationship.”
