“Being back with Audacy Miami this past year has felt like such a rewarding reunion,” said Calder. “I’m honored by the trust that Jeff Sottolano, Dave Richards, Steve Salhany and Claudia Menegus have put in me to reunite me with Orlando, this time at the legendary Mix 105.1! I’m looking forward to making some noise with new and familiar faces.”
Calder’s radio career began in 2001 which included various stops at Big City Radio Chicago (WKIE-FM), then Entercom Milwaukee (WXSS-FM/WMYX-FM), CBS Radio New York (WXRK-FM), Cox Media Group Orlando (WPYO-FM) and Tampa (WPOI-FM) and currently Audacy Miami (WPOW-FM).

At its prime, RADIOMIXES was heard on hundreds of radio stations worldwide. Additionally, in 2005, Calder created an internet radio station called iPartyRadio, which played non-stop up-tempo dance and party music and quickly became one of the world’s top 200 most-listened-to internet streams during its era.
“Thank you to Claudia Menegus and Will Calder for bringing me on to this legendary station,” said Serrano. “I’m looking forward to this next chapter in my career.”
