Beasley Media Group’s Classic Rock 102.9 WMGK-FM legendary Midday Personality Debbi Calton put on her headphones for the very last time before officially retiring on Friday, December 6th. She has been on the air at the station in the same daypart for 26 years.
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.
Her final show included farewell messages from listeners and special guests, including members of George Thorogood’s band (the Destroyers), her husband (Chip) and son (Dustin), the Phillie Phanatic, former WMGK morning host Harvey, along with other lifelong friends and colleagues.
