Domino Effect In Philly        11-20-21
Audacy Inc., the nation's second-largest radio company, has revamped the weekday programming lineups for its three Philadelphia music stations, including adding a host who will broadcast from Orlando. Glenn Kalina, morning drive host at classic hits station WOGL-FM 98.1 in Philadelphia has retired. Starting this week, WOGL also added Orlando resident Domino as afternoon drive host to replace Bobby Smith, who now will host the afternoon drive on sister station WBEB-FM 101  in Philadelphia. Domino will continue to live and work in Orlando, where he hosts the afternoon drive show for WOCL-FM 105.9, another Audacy-owned station. Domino will air from 2 p.m. to 7 p.m. in both Orlando and Philadelphia, but the program is not syndicated. He essentially will air separate programs for each city, despite having the same time slot. That is made possible by the ability to schedule music and breaks strategically.
