Calton never imagined she would work in radio 40+ years. The trailblazing disc jockey began her radio career at the young age of 19 at a small, daytime AM station in Charlotte, NC. She went on to spend 10 years at former Philly rock station WYSP-FM, before moving to WMGK-FM in 1993.
She added, “I have been so fortunate to work in Philadelphia, with such amazing fans, over the past 36 years. I am also grateful for having the best shift ever (9am – 2pm) at WMGK. As a result, I was able to drop my son off at school and pick him up afterward. He’s now 27. This has been an amazing ride!”
WMGK-FM will feature highlights of Debbi’s career in November, including early airchecks, classic interviews, event coverage, while also posting as many embarrassing photos as she will allow.
The station is actively conducting a search for Debbi’s on-air replacement and is accepting qualified applicant materials at email@example.com.
