WAAF is shaking things up for the new year. The rock station is bringing on two new on-air personalities — Matty Blake and Nick Stevens — for the afternoon drive and reshuffling others in the lineup.
Blake is a comedian and actor (who was raised in Central Mass.) and host of “The Curse of Oak Island: Drilling Down” on The History Channel. Stevens is a South Shore native who will be moving back to Massachusetts from New York, where he’s been doing stand-up for 20 years.
Mistress Carrie, who has hosted afternoons on WAAF for the past 11 years, will return to her original midday (10 a.m. to 3 p.m.) slot.
Meanwhile, WAAF midday host Mike Hsu will move from the midday shift and return to the Hill-Man Morning Show with Greg Hill. The station says the move will be a reunion of sorts for Hill and Hsu, because Hsu originally served as the program’s news director until 2004.
The new lineup will debut Jan. 3.
“WAAF has always been a brand built on engaging and unorthodox personalities,” said WAAF program director Ron Valeri, in a statement on the station’s website. “As one of America’s longest standing rock stations, this new line up positions WAAF to thrive in the New Year and for many years to come.”
