The legendary Mason Dixon has signed a multi-year renewal deal to continue as morning host at Q105/WRBQ-FM in Tampa. Dixon has been one of the most recognized media names in Tampa for four decades.
After signing the new deal Dixon said the majority of his life has been Q105. “They say when you love what you are doing, you never work a day in your life. Thanks to all at Beasley Media Group, including Ted Cannarozzi, Travis Daily, Steve Triplett, and certainly all of the Beasley Media Group family for giving me the chance to keep never working….oh…wait…that doesn’t sound right…uh…letting me keep loving what we do for the Tampa Bay area and Q105! Let the fun continue!”
Tampa Bay Mayor Bob Buckhorn honored Dixon’s four-decade-long career by proclaiming it “Mason Dixon Day” in February 2018.
“Mason Dixon is part of the fabric of the Tampa Bay community,” said station Program Director, Ted Cannarozzi. “We’re thrilled to have him remain the face of Q105 for years to come.”
“Tampa Bay wouldn’t be Tampa Bay without Mason Dixon in the morning,” said Beasley Media Group Tampa Vice President and Market Manager Steve Triplett. “I’m honored to work with him and excited about hearing his show on the air for many years to come.”
The name Mason Dixon and Tampa Bay radio have become synonymous for over 40 years. Mason utilizes humor, compassion, and community awareness to help ease the tensions of the morning drive to work. Mason has been named “Air Personality of the Year” and “Operations Manager of the Year” by various radio publications throughout his career.
