Deanna Marie and Justin Franiak have exited mornings at Beasley AC “Mix 99.5 WJBR" Wilmington, Delaware.

Deanna Marie originally joined market veteran Johnny B on "Mix Mornings" October 4, 2021. Previously Deanna spent 3 years in Reno, Nevada on KLCA top 40 "Alice 96.5" where she debuted in radio with "Bill, Deanna and RJ on the ALICE Morning Show"

The two became a duo in March of 2022 when Justin Franiak joined Deanna officially after filling in on mornings upon Johnny's exit. Franiak also hosts weekends at sister station Country 92.5 WXTU Philadelphia. He previously hosted mornings at Country “93.7 The Bull” KBBL Santa Rosa CA from May 2019 until last October. Franiak began his career at Sports 94.1 WIP Philadelphia as a promotions/stunt guy and has also held on-air positions at WHDL/WPIG Olean NY and Townsquare Media Binghamton NY.

Deanna and Justin In The Morning's most recent Nielsen book was the best in the station's recent history putting them at #2 among persons 18-49, and growing WJBR's cume by 62% compared to the last several years.

Deanna commented "We have worked so hard to be where we are today and that won’t stop even though our time with WJBR is coming to a close."

Deanna and Justin have partnered with clients on fundraisers like WJBR's famous 'Help Our Kids Radiothon' benefiting Nemours Children's Hospital and helping to raise almost $325,000 for the second year in a row. D&J have both teamed up with several other local clients to emcee and host community events and fundraisers. They are a true representation of LIVE AND LOCAL radio with a show that sounds like it belongs in a major market.

D&J were nominated for and won The Best of Delaware as voted by readers of Delaware Today Magazine. They were finalists in the All Access' Radio’s Got Talent’ competition, and it doesn't stop here!
