Dee Daniels To Depart WBQB Morning Show

Centennial Broadcasting Hot AC “B101.5” WBQB Fredericksburg VA morning host Dee Daniels will depart on Friday, August 13 after thirteen years at the station.

Daniels originally co-hosted mornings with former OM Chris Carmichael until the arrival of Chris Centore in 2009. She has led the morning show as “Dee In The Morning” since Centore’s departure in 2015. She intends to relocate to Savannah GA for a job outside of radio.

Current co-hosts Ted Schubel, Robert Workman, and AJ will remain in place on the rebranded “B101.5 Morning Show” with weekend/fill-in host Adam West and Operations Manager Chuck Archer alternating as host until a new host is determined.

Centennial Broadcasting II, LLC, Fredericksburg, Virginia, Hot AC WBQB (B101.5) “Dee In The Morning” personality Dee Daniels announces her departure from B101.5 to pursue an opportunity outside of the industry and outside of the Fredericksburg area. Her final morning show broadcast will be Friday, August 13.

“It is with a grateful heart that I share the news that I am stepping down as host of the Dee in the Morning Show to pursue a new opportunity and direction in Savannah, Georgia,” said Daniels. “It has been one of the greatest joys of my life to serve and entertain the greater Fredericksburg region with B101.5 and Centennial Broadcasting. I hope you will join me on Friday, August 13th, in celebrating 13 years of fun, laughter and amazing local partnerships. Thank you for letting me be a part of your community and your lives.”

“We couldn’t be more happy and sad at the same time,” says Mark Bass, B101.5 Market Manager. “Sad that she is leaving, but happy she is following her dreams and her heart. We thank her and wish nothing but the best for her future.”

In six years as the solo host of the “Dee In The Morning” show, Dee has earned her way to the top of the Fredericksburg ratings, cultivated a network of fans called “The Five O’clock Club (5OC)”, created and hosted several podcasts, and helped raise nearly $800,000 as anchor of the annual “B101.5 Careathon For Children’s National.”

A nationwide search is underway for the next host of the B101.5 morning show. “Dee In The Morning” ensemble cast members Ted Schubel, Robert Workman, and AJ will remain with Adam West and Chuck Archer sharing hosting duties until a new permanent host is in place. The morning show will be re-branded “The B101.5 Morning Show” during the transition and will continue to air weekdays 5am to 10am.

“All of the morning show elements you have come to rely on will be in place during the interim,” says Chuck Archer, B101.5 Operations Manager. “We are reaching out to our listener base, including the 5OC, to find out what qualities they feel would make for an excellent new host for the B101.5 Morning Show. It’s their show really and we think our listeners deserve to have a voice in the process
