WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. — Mark McCray is the new Program Director of X102.3 WMBX-FM and Fox Sports 640 WMEN-AM for Hubbard Radio's West Palm cluster.

He is also hosting X102.3's weekday afternoons from 3 p.m. - 7 p.m.

McCray is no stranger to "Today's R&B and Yesterday's Throwbacks" because he designed and launched X102.3 two decades ago. Then the station was known for "Blazing 18 Jams in a Row."

“It’s an honor to have the opportunity to help lead Hubbard’s great brands like WMEN and WMBX for a second time. West Palm Beach has always been a special market for me and [has] some of the best listeners anywhere," said McCray.

McCray's vision is to continue the station's community-driven vision.

"Having Mark come back to the station he launched 20 years ago is a very special homecoming. WMBX is a legendary brand in South Florida with a long record of success and community service including being nominated by The NAB for a prestigious Marconi Award," said Senior Vice-President, Market Manager of Hubbard Radio West Palm Beach Elizabeth Hamma.

"Mark McCray is a world-class programmer and we couldn’t be happier to have him," said Bruce Logan who is the radio cluster's operations manager.
