Two familiar local radio voices will be part of the new morning team at WNIR (100.1-FM) beginning Monday.
Chris Fox and Angela Bellios will join Phil Ferguson and Steve French on the news-talk station. Fox’s quarter-century in radio has included a stint as afternoon host on WDOK (102.1-FM) from 2000 to 2007. Bellios, who most recently worked at WHBC (94.1-FM), also worked for WKDD (98.1-FM) from 1992 to 2008, including six years as a co-host with Matt Patrick.
Fox and Bellios succeed Stan Piatt and Maggie Fuller on the morning show. WNIR announced in August that Piatt would be retiring from the station by July 2014, but he departed more suddenly in September, reportedly after a falling out with station brass; Fuller left at the same time, saying on her Facebook page that “a time comes in life when one must defend their own integrity.”
