The Year is 2022 But Top Rated Morning Duo “Preston and Steve” Extend Contract with WMMR Through 2030

Most media companies will extend a contract for 5 years to their most talented personalities be it Steve Harvey, Elvis Duran, Bobby Bones, Charlamagne Tha God, or even Howard Stern; but Beasley offering an eight year extension is unprecedented in radio.  

Beasley Media Group announces legendary WMMR-FM Morning Personalities Preston and Steve have signed a multiyear extension to their contract that will keep them on the air in Philadelphia through 2030, enabling them to celebrate their 25th anniversary with the station!

A ratings powerhouse, Preston Elliot and Steve Morrison have maintained the top morning show position in Philadelphia since they joined the station back in May of 2005. In addition, the pair produce daily full show and highlight episode podcasts, daily/weekly video programs and maintain a remarkable world-wide social media audience.

Past recipients of the National Association of Broadcasters’ prestigious Service to America Award and 2021 National Radio Hall of Fame Inductees, the duo is known for their philanthropic efforts throughout the Philadelphia region. The annual I Bleed for Preston and Steve event has been recognized as the nation’s largest single day blood drive. In addition, the duo’s 2021 Camp Out for Hunger, the nation’s biggest single-site food drive, produced over 2.3 million pounds of food and over 1 million in cash for Philabundance.

“Amongst the multitude of things we have to feel blessed for, the fact that we will be able to continue to work for a company we are proud of alongside people we respect and admire is beyond humbling,” said Preston and Steve. “We could not be more excited.”

“Since the day we bought WMMR our goal has been to have Preston and Steve be a part of the station and the Beasley Family for as long as they’d like to be,” said Beasley Media Group President Bruce Beasley. “This is a huge step in that direction. They are truly the “gold standard” by which you can measure all other shows!”

“I am blown away daily by the level of their show,” said Vice President and Market Manager Joe Bell. “The preparation, the content and their ability to connect with the audience…it’s truly amazing.”

“Recent studies highlight the essential role personalities play in radio’s future,” added Beasley Vice President of Talent Development and WMMR-FM Program Director, Bill Weston. “Having The Preston and Steve Show locked in as WMMR’s morning is just fantastic news.”
