“Chio knows Philly inside and out and no one is more passionate about his listeners,” said Brian Check, Vice President of Programming, CCME Philadelphia.  “We’re thrilled to have him back!”

“There are very few names in Philadelphia radio that bring instant smiles and have done so for some many years like Chio,” said Richard Lewis, Market President, Clear Channel Media and Entertainment Philadelphia.  “He is the Rocky of Philly Radio!  He’s up, he’s back and ready to fight to get people through their morning trip to work.”

Chio left Beasley’s Wired 96.5 WRDW-FM Philadelphia in late 2012.  He was a member of the “Chio, Shila and Tingle in the Morning Show,” which airs from 6:00 – 10:00 a.m. each weekday morning.  Chio first made his fame at Beasley’s Power 96.5 in Miami.
