• After several days of social media teases, production pro James Steele finally revealed he is making his triumphant return to Orlando. Steele, who spent the past four years as APD/afternoon drive/Imaging guru at Alpha Media Top 40 WXYK (107.1 The Monkey)/Biloxi-Gulfport, MS has come home to the same building — and same frequency — where he worked until the summer of 2015. He’s the newly anointed afternoon talent and Imaging Director for Entercom Alternative WQMP (FM101.9)/Orlando.
Before joining The Monkey in July 2015, Steele worked for CBS Radio Orlando as Production Manager for the cluster and Imaging Director/night jock for former Top 40 WJHM (101.9 AMP Radio) — now Alternative FM101.9. See how this all comes full-circle? “I’m back home in the city that made me fall in love with radio… and it feels good,” Steele tells RAMP.
Steele’s career also includes a stint in Norfolk as APD/Imaging Director for iHeartRadio’s WNOH (Now 105) and WMOV (MOViN 107.7), preceded by a seven-year run across the street with Sinclair, where he rose to PD of Alternative WROX (96X). He previously worked at WGBT (94.5 The Beat)/Greensboro and WBVD/Melbourne, FL.
