Veteran air personality Mason Dixon signs a multi-year renewal to continue doing mornings at Beasley Classic Hits WRBQ-FM (Q105)/Tampa. Dixon has aired on Tampa radio for over 40 years. He's been named "Air Personality of the Year" and "Operations Manager of the Year" by various radio publications throughout his career. Tampa Bay Mayor Bob Buckhorn honored his four-decade long career by proclaiming it "Mason Dixon Day" in February, 2018.

"The majority of my life has been Q105," said Dixon. "They say when you love what you are doing, you never work a day in your life. Thanks to all at Beasley media group, including Ted Cannarozzi, Travis Daily, Steve Triplett and certainly all of the Beasley Media Group family for giving me the chance to keep never working... oh wait, that doesn't sound right... uh, letting me keep loving what we do for the Tampa Bay area and Q105. Let the fun continue."

"Mason Dixon is part of the fabric of the Tampa Bay community," added Program Director Ted Cannarozzi. "We're thrilled to have him remain the face of Q 105 for years to come."

"Tampa Bay wouldn't be Tampa Bay without Mason Dixon in the morning," said Beasley Media Group Tampa VP/Market Manager Steve Triplett. "I'm honored to work with him and excited about hearing his show on the air for many years to come!"

An active philanthropist, Mason has been involved in the community for as long as he has been in the Tampa Bay area, supporting many non-profit organizations, including the Alzheimer's Association, the American Cancer Society, Metropolitan Ministries, and his very own Christmas Wish initiative.
