Longtime bay area media personality Nancy Alexander is moving from the morning drive shift to afternoons on WMTX-FM (Mix 100.7) on Monday.
Among the big commercial stations in mornings, Alexander was the biggest female star standing, with past jobs as a feature reporter on WTVT-Ch. 13 and status as a finalist for the co-hosting job with Regis Philbin, which went to Kelly Ripa.
According to a news release, Alexander will get a new on-air partner, too. Current co-host Chris Randolph will move to the late morning, 10 a.m. shift, and assistant program director Kurt Shriner joins Alexander in afternoons.
So who takes over mornings now on Mix 100.7? That goes to Elvis Duran and the Morning Show, a program syndicated from New York.
"Nancy is a remarkable, unbelievable talent everyone adores," program director Doug Hamand said in the official statement from the station. "She will be fantastic in the office and on the way home."
