There had been some hints, some jokes, and the usual crew banter on the MJ Morning Show podcast recently about a potential relaunch of an actual live radio show with MJ, Froggy, and Fester. But now we have official confirmation that the MJ Morning Show is actually returning to the Tampa radio market for good!
On Episode 43 of the podcast, MJ announced that the MJ Morning Show will return to the air on Monday, October 5, 2020 on Q105, 104.7 WRBQ-FM in Tampa. The classic hits station, one of the heritage radio stations in the Tampa market for many years, is owned by Beasley Media Group with studios in St. Petersburg, FL.
Like it did for so many years before, the show will air from 6 to 10 a.m. Eastern each weekday morning. We also know that MJ, Froggy, and Fester will be teaming up with Roxanne Wilder, a Q105 personality who previously served on the station’s Mason Dixon Morning Show and has worked for other stations in the Tampa area. MJ said that he wanted to have a female voice on the show much like he had Meredith on the first version of the morning show and that she’d be good at ganging up on the guys with his wife, Michelle. MJ also said that he truly missed the humor and entertainment of doing a morning radio show, and this was a big reason why he wanted to get back into it. Plus, the popularity of the podcast with “hundreds of thousands of downloads” convinced he and the crew that listeners were hungry for a live show.
