77 WABC celebrates law enforcement with ‘Back The Blue’

News/Talk 610 WIOD in Miami will have a new voice in the mornings as Andrew Colton takes over the mornings starting Monday, January 9, 2023, in the slot currently held by Jimmy Cefalo (h/t Radio Insight).

Colton spent the previous sixteen years running Colton Legal Media as a litigation media specialist.

“We are thrilled to introduce Andrew Colton as the new host of WIOD’s premier live, local morning driving news program,” said Shari Gonzalez, President of iHeartMedia Miami/Fort Lauderdale Market.

“With Andrew’s journalism expertise and deep ties to South Florida, he is a broadcaster worthy of this role. Jimmy Cefalo is a true South Florida broadcasting legend. We thank Jimmy for these 14 wonderful years and are delighted that he remains a commentator on NewsRadio 610, WIOD.

Additionally, he previously served as news director and morning host for iHeart’s 100.3 KTLK-FM Minneapolis from 2005 to 2007. For six years, he was also a national correspondent for ABC News Radio and worked for several local television stations, including WFOR-Television Miami.

“South Florida is a hotbed of news, information and influence in the nation and around the world,” Colton said.

“We recently hosted a large number of transplants from the Northeast, Midwest and other countries who have always relied on radio as a vital source of information. WIOD is that source here, and I encourage anyone who wants to know what everyone is talking about to join us weekday mornings from 6-10am.
