Posted on 2/17/2009 5:12:12 PM

Jeff Chiarelli, a December 2006 Communications Media graduate, recently won an Achievement in Radio Award in the category of “Best Weekday Overnight Host.”

Chiarelli currently is on-air talent at WRDW-Wired 96.5 radio in Philadelphia. He had worked for the promotions and programming departments at the radio station during an internship, and then was hired after graduation as a board operator and street team member. He worked his way into his current position, eventually taking over the full-time overnight shift with his show “Late Night with JC.”

Chiarelli hopes to move into the afternoon slot and eventually become a music or program director for a contemporary hit radio station.
