Cox Media Group (“CMG”) Orlando today announced radio programming line-up changes at WWKA and WMMO in Orlando. The changes are effective immediately.
Joining the WWKA morning show is Chloe Nelson (right), former morning host with CMG Athens (WNGC). Before her stint in Athens, Nelson was the morning show producer in Orlando. Upon her return, she’ll host full-time with Obie Diaz (right on the left) and Slater (right on the right).
Slater moves from PM Drive to re-join the morning show with Diaz and Nelson. Slater was previously the producer and co-host before Nelson was in that position and has been in PM Drive for the past two years.
CMG Orlando is also elevating Melissa Quinones (left), currently working on WWKA Middays, to Music Director. Quinones will now cover PM Drive. Jay Edwards (right) will serve as the full-time midday talent on WWKA and PM Drive talent on WMMO. Edwards is a 20-year market veteran that most recently held the morning producer role at the CMG sister station, WDBO.
“I am thrilled that we have the opportunity to elevate internal CMG talent to these essential roles,” said Steve Stewart, Director of Operations of CMG Orlando Radio. “The entire team represents the passion, culture, and spirit of Orlando and we believe these changes will strengthen the bond we have with our audience. We’re confident our community will love this new direction!”
