Jan 02, 2003, 00:00 ET from Greater Philadelphia Radio

    PHILADELPHIA, Jan. 2 /PRNewswire/ -- Mix 95.7 (WMWX/95.7 FM, Philadelphia)
 is pleased to announce the addition of two longtime Philadelphia favorites to
 its on-air staff beginning January 6, 2003.  Glenn Kalina, formerly of Alice
 104.5, WIOQ 102.1 and 98.1 WCAU, will start the day off at 6:00 a.m.
 Michelle Pollino, formerly of KYW radio, will join Kalina in the morning with
 news updates. Brian Murphy will follow Glenn Kalina at 10:00 a.m.  Brian
 Murphy is best known to Philadelphia for his five years at the former Eagle
 106 and two years at Star 104.5.  Joe Mama, who was anchoring the morning
 slot, returns to afternoons beginning at 3:00 p.m.  The syndicated radio show
 "Delilah" which airs on Mix 95.7 weekdays at 8:00 p.m., will also be replaced
 with an exciting new show that will be announced on Monday.
     Kalina dominated Philadelphia radio in the '80s at Hot Hits 98 where an
 unprecedented two million Philadelphia radio listeners tuned into the station
 each week.  Kalina then spent a decade at Q102 where his top-rated morning
 show set the tone for morning radio in the '90s.  Kalina helped launch the
 Alice format in 2000 as a morning personality and was consistently rated in
 the top five in the station's target demographics.  Kalina has been recognized
 with many awards throughout his Philadelphia career including the Pennsylvania
 Association of Broadcasters Award for Excellence in Broadcasting in 1997,
 A.I.R. Awards for his morning show in 1998 and 1999 as well an A.I.R. award in
 2000 for his Community Service.
     Kalina comments, "I'm so looking forward to working with Mix 95.7
 Operations Manager Gerry DeFrancesco again along with Vice President/General
 Manager Rick Feinblatt and the terrific staff at Greater Media!  Mix 95.7 has
 the nucleus to become a powerful radio leader in the Philadelphia market. I
 can't wait to get started!"
     Brian Murphy was born and raised in Pennsylvania.  He started his local
 broadcasting career at the Top 40 powerhouse Eagle 106 in 1986, where he spent
 five years in the afternoon drive period.  Murphy joined Star 104.5 in 1992 as
 a midday personality.
     He moved to Boston in 1994.  Murphy comments, "This is like a dream come
 true!  It's an opportunity to work with great people in a city that I love.
 Family, friends and two new ballparks ... what's not to like?"
     Joe Mama, one of the original Mix 95.7 personalities, moves back to
 afternoons after spending the past few months as host of the Mix 95.7 Morning
 Show.  Rounding out the broadcast day will be a very special programming
 feature that will be announced on Monday, January 6th.
     Gerry DeFrancesco, Operations Manager at Mix 95.7, comments, "We've put
 together Philadelphia's favorite radio talent.  Combined with our upbeat mix
 of music from the '80s, '90s and today, Mix 95.7 has all the ingredients to
 become one of Philadelphia's favorite radio stations."
