. Preson decided to leave St. Louis and head for philly and his new job. shortly after joining WDRE the station was switched to a Rap
station, then joining up with former co-workers and going into the Alternative rock station Y100
and started the morning show there. After 2001 when Marylin Russel left the morning show the TRUE Preston and Steve show became one. in 2005 Radio One
) decided to switch all there radio station formats to urban music (see crap
) Preston was then forced to chose to end his carrer or join in with philly's famous WMMR
the entire morning show (preston, steve, kathy, casey-boy, nick, and interns) switched over to WMMR, and have been there ever since (93.3 WMMR rocks)

He is happy to have this job working with Preston, Casey, Kathy and Nick.
Executive Producer: Casey “Boy” Foster is a local boy, who went to Cardinal O'Hara High School and Ursinus College in Collegeville. After graduation, he fell right into the arms of radio and feels lucky to be a part of the Philly radio community. 8 years later, he’s here at WMMR, along with Preston & Steve, Kathy & Nick.
Producer and webmaster: Nick McIlwain joined the Preston & Steve show in 2004 after working for Pierre Robert at 'MMR for 3 years.

where she works side by side with WMMR’s night-time DJ, Matt Cord. Kathy is an excellent cook, a terrific dancer, and by far, the prettiest member of the show!
very humours radio show that deals with many issues, has many many histerical moments when steve (former stand up comedian) makes random comments that fit perfectly (or completely off topic) that are hilarious

Love You/Hate You Line: a line that the show came up with after hearing another radio show do this, listeners call in and complain or rant about how much they hate or love somthing. very funny somtimes
