December 17, 2012

Clear Channel CHR WIOQ (Q102)/Philadelphia announces a revamped on-air lineup, moving Chris "Maxwell" Jones to afternoon drive (3-7 p.m.), as Michael "Prolifik" Garofalo arrives for weeknight duties. These changes will be effective January 2. Maxwell replaces Tim "Romeo" Herbster, who was named VP of Special Programming Projects for CCM+E earlier this year.

"I couldnít be more excited to take what former Program Director, Tim Herbster, taught me and apply it to afternoons," said Maxwell. "It means the world to me to take on such a legendary role at Q102."

Prolifik will join Q102 from sister Clear Channel CHR WKSS (Kiss 95.7)/Harford, CT. He will continue to broadcast weeknights on WKSS in Hartford as well as 105.7 WMKS in Greensboro, NC. He is also a columnist for Popstar Magazine and a correspondent for AXS-TV. Prolifik will also host Real Music Live specials which will air on NBC owned stations on Saturday, Dec. 22, 2012 and Saturday, Jan. 5, 2013 after Saturday Night Live.

"Prolifik is a rare breed and Iím excited for him to bring his unique on-air style to Q102," said Q102 PD Stan Priest.   "His brand of on-air delivery caters to the very active female audience and will be an entertaining addition for our evening listeners." 

"Q102 is a dream gig for me Ė Iím thrilled work under the coaching and guidance of Stan Priest and Brian Check," said Prolifik. "Iím excited to connect with listeners in Philadelphia every weekday evening while staying in touch with listeners in Hartford and Greensboro."
