Fans of 93.3 WMMR’s morning broadcasts can rest easy knowing that Preston Elliot and Steve Morrison won’t be going anywhere — at least for the next few years.
The morning hosts have signed a deal to continue broadcasting with ‘MMR. That station did not indicate the length of the duo’s new contract, and rather only noted the agreement is a “multi-year deal extension” for Preston & Steve to continue on at the Beasley Broadcast Group-owned station.
“Steve and I are so thrilled that the plan we set in motion many years ago to feign talent in the radio industry has yielded such wonderful results,” Elliot said in a statement. “None of this, not one second of this, would have been possible without the friendship and support of the people of Philadelphia who have stayed with us throughout the years.”
This May marks the duo’s 14th year broadcasting with WMMR, which Elliot and Morrison first joined back in 2005. Since then, they have been known as the hosts of Philadelphia’s top-rated morning radio show.
“I’ve never worked with a more dedicated, talented, and hard-working show,” ‘MMR program director and Beasley rock format brand manager Bill Weston said. “As a PD, I don’t know what else I could ask for.”
Last year, Elliot and Morrison celebrated their 20th year in Philadelphia radio, having started together at Y100 back in 1998 alongside former co-host Marilyn Russell as Preston, Marilyn & Steve. As Elliot told the Inquirer at the time, there is no end in sight for the pair.
