Two Girls & A Guy are getting back together at Apex Broadcasting Adult CHR “Mix 96” 95.9 WMXZ Isle of Palms/Charleston.
The show featured multiple incarnations during its twelve year run at Cumulus CHR “95SX” WSSX before the final triumvirate moved on to larger markets. Those three: Mike Edwards, Tonya Brown, and Brooke Ryan will return to Charleston on September 15. Edwards and Brown recently exited mornings at Alpha Media’s “Live 95.5” KBFF Portland, while Ryan was hosting afternoons at Cumulus’ “Hits 107.3” WRQX Washington DC. Edwards will also take on Program Director duties at WMXZ replacing current PD/Afternoon Host Sammy Suarez.
The trio will replace the syndicated Ace & TJ in mornings at WMXZ.

Apex Broadcasting’s Vice President & General Manager David Abel says, “The Charleston market has an affinity for local content and it is a part of the fabric that makes Charleston such a unique city.

They are very excited to come home to the Low Country and we look forward to adding their talents to our programming staff.”
Tanya Brown returns to Charleston as “the mom” of 2 Girls & A Guy. She’s a single mother of four who likes to call herself “the voice of reason” on the show. As a four time winner of the Charleston Animal Society Celebrity Chili Cook Off, she loves to cook in addition to her passionate interest of local news, events, and hot topics. Tanya has been a morning radio mainstay for 12+ years before moving to Portland, Oregon in 2013.
Brooke Ryan was known as “Charleston’s Party Girl” from her years on 2 Girls & A Guy before accepting a transfer to Washington D.C. where she was co-host of the city’s popular “Jack Diamond Show”. SHOCKER! Brooke is currently busy planning her wedding to the love of her life, Jimmy, and both are excited to start their new life together in the city she’s always loved and missed. Brooke also looks forward to continuing her work in helping raise awareness for the local and national chapters of the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation and doing everything in her power to become BFF’s with Bill Murray.
Mike “The Guy” Edwards was the program director of 95SX for over 13 years and part of 2 Girls & A Guy since 2007 before leaving to do a morning show in Portland, Oregon with Tanya Brown. Mike will also program Mix 96’s music format and can’t wait to get started. Mike says, “Mix 96 is going to be a fun station with an upbeat music mix and a concentration on capturing Charleston’s unique local vibe and personality! Charleston’s hometown morning show is now on Charleston’s new hometown radio station”.
