Station Spotlight: Tony Q and WJKS-FM

SurferNETWORK would like to congratulate our longtime partner station, WJKS 101.7FM and Station Owner and General Manager Tony Quartarone on winning the prestigious Urban Knight Radio Award for Marketing, Programming and Promotion in Urban Radio.

The award is chosen by a committee of individuals from the NAB, RAB, and The American Urban Radio Network.  This is the first year that the award will be given to an Independently Owned Radio Station in a Small to Medium Market, a great honor for a great radio station!

Tony’s long career in Urban Radio has spanned markets from New York (Kiss 98.7) to Philadelphia (Power 99FM) before bringing WJKS onto the air in 1997, serving Delaware, Chester & South Jersey.  His Kiss Spring Jam Concert Series was the first to bring Top 40 acts to the state of Delaware each year for one show.  You can check out some videos and photos from Spring Jam X here.

  1. Wonder if he will return back to Power99 since he left Kiss 101.7… as Power has a slot open for a Program Director…
