WAAF Welcomes Nick Stevens and Matty Blake. Check Out Our New Weekday Lineup For 2017!
Boston legacy rock station WAAF today announced a shift in dayparts for two high-profile personalities and the addition of two new on-air personalities in a major reshuffle at the station. New to afternoon drive are Matty Blake and Nick Stevens, while long-time WAAF midday host Mike Hsu re-joins the popular Hill-Man Morning Show, and afternoon fixture Mistress Carrie slips into the midday chair.
Blake, a comedian, is also a TV, film and commercial actor. Nationally, he hosts "The Curse of Oak Island: Drilling Down" on The History Channel. Raised in Central Massachusetts, Matty returns to Boston for the new afternoon gig with his comedy cohort, Nick Stevens.
Stevens, a native of Boston's South Shore, has been doing stand-up in New York for 20 years. He also makes pop culture and sports TV appearances and is a successful commercial voiceover actor. Stevens is perhaps best known for his alter ego character "Fitzy", a profane, hyper-obsessed Boston sports fan. He relocates from Brooklyn to Boston to join WAAF.
Massachusetts native Mistress Carrie is among WAAF's most recognized on-air personalities. She began her career as a station intern in the early 90's, ultimately making her way to the microphone. Carrie hosted afternoons on WAAF for the past 11 years and now returns to her original midday (10:00AM-3:00PM) slot to entertain listeners.
Likewise, Mike Hsu, another Boston area native, took over middays on WAAF in 2005. His move to the Hill-Man Morning Show is a reunion of sorts with Greg Hill; Hsu originally served as the program's news director until 2004.
"WAAF has always been a brand built on engaging and unorthodox personalities," said Ron Valeri, program director at WAAF. "As one of America's longest standing rock stations, this new line up positions WAAF to thrive in the New Year and for many years to come."
The station debuts its new line-up Tuesday, January 3rd, 2017.
