Y100 was populated by 103.9 WDRE, which was the best music station we have ever had in Philly. When DRE was taken over and became The Beat, they fired all the staff (understandably, since they could not be taken seriously as the airstaff for a hip-hop/R&B station). Most of them went to Y100. Poor Jim "Rumorboy" McGuinn, Preston, and Bret. This is the second time The Beat has taken their jobs. At WDRE in 1997, and again now. Fortunately, Preston and Steve have a job at WMMR lined up (they will be like MMR's 5th different morning show in the last decade). I am sure Jim will land on his feet. He was a great PD at WDRE and PD/Station Manager at Y100.
