Joe and Scott
The “Joe and Scott Morning Show” hit the airwaves in May of 1995 broadcasting from their New Jersey Avenue studios in Wildwood. On January 5, 1998 Equity Communications, LLC purchased 100.7 WZXL and subsequently built a brand new studio, moving the duo to its current Bayport One location on the Black Horse Pike in West Atlantic City. Sadly, the team broke up in 2000, Scott enjoyed a successful career in real estate sales and motivational speaking, while Joe pursued other professional interests.
However, as most radio personalities will admit, Joe and Scott never totally broke free from the hold of radio. Their fondness for live morning drive radio led them back down the same road once traveled, even if it meant working two jobs.
In 2008 the two broadcasters reunited and recreated the chemistry that was the hallmark of the Joe & Scott team. In April of 2009, the duo was hired back, starting back to work on Monday morning, March 23, 2009.
After that first Monday morning show, the response from the WZXL listening audience was instantaneous and overwhelming. The team’s former fans, many of whom had remained loyal to WZXL through a succession of less-successful morning shows, welcomed them back with open arms and ears. New fans quickly joined in the craziness & antics including “Naked Lady Thursday”, people polls and a salute to workforce employees of the day. Soon afterwards the Spring 2009 Arbitron ratings were released, confirming what WZXL’s listeners already knew: Joe and Scott ranked as the very top of the morning ratings with a number one morning show among their core demographic, men between the ages of 25 and 54.
“Being back on the air with ZXL is not only refreshing but, also amusing,” said Joe, a lifelong South Jersey resident. “Every day brings new topics and views. There are always new ways to engage listeners. We just talk about the day to day stories from people, their gripes and their successes, and that makes for an interesting show every day.” Scott adds, “I’m truly amazed we’re getting paid for this again. For four hours every day we get to play our favorite music and talk on the radio,” said the wise-cracking counterpart to Joe’s more laid back sense of humor.
