WAAF Revamps On-Air Lineup For 2017

107.3 WAAF 97.7 WKAF Boston Mistress Carrie Hsu Matty Blake Nick StevensEntercom Rock 107.3 WAAF Westborough/97.7 WKAF Brockton/Boston MA is making changes to all three of its weekday dayparts starting January 3.

Midday host Mike Hsu is rejoining the Hill-Man morning show that he was previously part of as news director until 2005. Mistress Carrie will move from afternoons back to the midday slot she handed to Hsu in 2005. Those moves will make way for the addition of a new afternoon show hosted by comedians Matty Blake and Nick Stevens. Massachusetts native Blake currently hosts “The Curse of Oak Island: Drilling Down”
on History Channel. Stevens is originally from the South Shore suburbs of Boston and had been based as a stand-up in New York.

Rock WAAF-FM Boston announces a shift in dayparts for two personalities and the addition of two new air talents in a major reshuffle at the station. New to afternoon drive are Matty Blake and Nick Stevens, while longtime WAAF midday host Mike Hsu re-joins the Hill-Man Morning Show and afternoon fixture Mistress Carrie moves into the midday chair. The new line-up begins on Tuesday, January 3.

Blake, a comedian, is also a TV, film and commercial actor. Nationally, he hosts “The Curse of Oak Island: Drilling Down” on The History Channel. Raised in Central Massachusetts, he returns to Boston for the new afternoon gig with his comedy cohort, Nick Stevens. Stevens, a native of Boston’s South Shore, has been doing stand-up in New York for 20 years. He also makes TV appearances and is a commercial voiceover actor.

Massachusetts native Mistress Carrie is among WAAF’s most recognized air personalities. She began her career as a station intern in the early 90’s, ultimately making her way to the microphone. Carrie hosted afternoons on WAAF for the past 11 years and now returns to her original midday (10am-3pm) slot. Likewise, Mike Hsu, another Boston area native, took over middays on WAAF in 2005. His move to The Hill-Man Morning Show is a reunion of sorts with Greg Hill, Hsu originally served as the program’s News Director until 2004.

“WAAF has always been a brand built on engaging and unorthodox personalities,” said PD Ron Valeri. “As one of America’s longest standing rock stations, this new line up positions WAAF to thrive in the New Year and for many years to come.”
