Phil Guerini, VP/GM of Radio Disney announced today that Radio Disney has revamped its programming schedule including an all-new morning show, “Morgan & Maddy in the Morning” hosted by Morgan Tompkins and Maddy Whitby. Tompkins and Whitby will continue to host Radio Disney’s popular “Move It Party” on Saturday evenings. The new daily schedule includes new assignments for some Disney hosts with on-air personality Candice moving to afternoons and new features for families on weekends.
Guerini said, “Morgan and Maddy have embodied the fun and youthful energy of Radio Disney during their weekend dance show and we’re thrilled to introduce this dynamic duo to our morning listeners as well. We are also confident that changes to peak listening times for families will further engage our audience across the nation.”
Radio Disney host Candice who most recently has been the evening host, moves to host the afternoons, which will continue to feature fan-favorite programs including “Celebrity Take” hosted by Radio Disney’s entertainment correspondent and on-air personality Jake Whetter and “Planet Premiere,” exclusive one-one-one interviews with listeners’ favorite stars. Blake Kuhre, who has hosted the morning show for six years, moves to evenings with “Up Late with… Blake,” a fast-paced, high-energy audience request driven show which will include Radio Disney’s popular “Dot Com Top 3.”
