WYBC Goes Local in the Mornings

Reporters are invited to attend the inaugural broadcast of the Juan Castillo Morning Show on September 10th from 6-10am at the WYBC Studios in New Haven.

Yale Broadcasting Company’s Urban Adult Contemporary 94.3 FM WYBC “The Rhythm of The City” is starting a new local morning show hosted by New Haven radio veteran Juan Castillo. “The Juan Castillo Morning Show” will make its debut on Monday September 10th and will air weekday mornings from 6am-10am.

The Juan Castillo Morning Show replaces the nationally syndicated Tom Joyner Morning Show, which has been the morning show on WYBC for over 20 years. Tom Joyner has announced he will retire from radio effective December 2019.

“It’s been over 2 decades that an Urban Contemporary Radio station has had a local morning show and the time is now,” says Juan, who also serves as WYBC’s Operations Manager and a leader in the community. “As much as I loved the Tom Joyner Morning Show the only negative was that there was not enough room for local content and to that end we will aim to super serve the state of Connecticut and the New Haven region with great local content.  I am excited to embark on this journey with our local listeners.”

The Juan Castillo Morning Show will feature news, weather, traffic, entertainment news and R&B music. The show will feature co-hosts Kandy Williams, a longtime New Haven resident and former personality at WYBC, and Rahsaan Langley, a national recording R&B artist with national and regional hits on the charts.

The weekly skits on The Juan Castillo Morning Show will include “The Barbershop Chronicles” featuring celebrity barber Majesty on Monday, “Movie Mike” Talk Show host Michael Howard’s film review on Tuesday, “Wealthy Wednesdays” with television and radio host Roberta Hoskie, “Throwback Thursdays” with Bobby and “Fantastic Friday.”
