Drew Garabo   Biography

Drew got his big break in 1993, when the WTKS-FM 104.1 Program Director heard Drew's college radio show on WPRK-FM 91.5 and thought Drew had a future in broadcasting. Drew worked part-time, doing weekends from 7PM to midnight and working a full time job as Assistant Food and Beverage Director at the Holiday Inn Orlando Airport.  The opportunity came along as producer for Ed Tyll, then midday host at WTKS. Drew began sitting in on the "Philips Phile" along with Ms. B and Moira, and adding his impersonations and comedy. Not long after, he became the producer for the Philips Phile. Jim went to bat for Drew, and he got his own show doing overnights. For a year and a half, Drew handled duties from midnight to 6AM, garnering a 20-share. With the departure of  Ed Tyll, Drew took over the 7PM slot. Along with Tuddle and Melanie, Drew and his crew have broadcast live from Magic games, Wet 'N Wild, hockey games and many other places around Central Florida.
