Cape Cod Broadcasting continues to bring in Boston radio veterans to pad its staff.
Karen Blake, who previously had been hosting mornings at Classic Hits 103.3 WODS prior to its flip to CHR in June 2012, has joined Hot AC 99.9 WQRC Barnstable for mornings. In addition to WODS, Blake has spent time at WXKS-FM, WZOU, WKLB, WQSX and WBMX during her career. Blake replaces Shailene Jackson who has exited the station.
Accompanying the addition of Blake, WQRC has rebranded as “99.9 The Q” as it drops all 80s music from its playlist and becomes current/recurrent based.
At sister Country “Cape Country 104” 103.9 WKPE-FM South Yarmouth, Ralphie Marino has joined for mornings. Marino, a veteran of stations up and down the east coast, spent many years co-hosting mornings at defunct Rhythmic AC “Star 93.7” WQSX with Blake.
The duo join former WBMX/WQSX Program Director Jerry McKenna and former WXKS/WQSX Marketing Director Beverly Tilden, who joined Cape Cod Broadcasting as Program Director and General Manager respectively last fall.
