There is reorganization going on in Philadelphia . Operations Manager Elroy Smith says, “As Mo’Shay Laren, current Assistant Program & Music Director/of WRNB and CeCe McGhee current Assistant Program & Music Director of WPPZ concentrate exclusively on their on-air shifts, I need someone to grab the baton from them and create magic in the programming department at Radio One Philadelphia. WRNB and WPPZ are two special radio stations in Philadelphia . Therefore, it will take a special person to wrap their arms around these properties and assist me in producing two of the greatest radio stations in America .
