WASHINGTON - Fox 5 and Radio One D.C. have announced a surprise addition to Majic 102.3/92.7 as Tony Perkins will reunite with Donnie Simpson.
Perkins and Simpson can be heard together on Majic 102.3/92.7 from 3 p.m. to 7 p.m. starting on Jan. 16, 2018.
However, this will not be a goodbye for Tony Perkins on Fox 5. You can still catch him Friday and Saturday mornings on Fox 5 WTTG.
The two D.C. legends are excited to get back together.
"Getting back together with Donnie is literally a dream come true," said Perkins. "We've talked about the possibility many times over the years, but the timing was just never right. But every time I've joined Donnie on the air during these recent years, we've always had a blast. Even more importantly, my son is growing up fast and as it stands now, I don't get home before midnight. I missed a lot of dinners, homework and ball games. This move allows me to continue to anchor at Fox, join Donnie on the radio and be part of my son's school and activities. I couldn't be more blessed."
"Although we will miss having Tony on our air each day, we are very happy Tony will have an opportunity to fulfill one of his passions and sit side by side with Donnie Simpson, another D.C. legend on MAJIC 102.3/92.7," Fox 5 and Fox 5 Plus Vice President and General Manager Patrick Paolini said. "We are also thrilled Tony will continue to be part of our Fox 5 family each week on Friday and Saturday mornings and on special assignments."
