Jorge Sedano joins WQAM as radio host, program director

South Florida Sun-Sentinel

Two of South Florida's drive-time heavy hitters are now teammates.

Jorge Sedano, who previously had broadcast for 790 The Ticket in morning drive time against WQAM's Joe Rose, has moved to WQAM, where he now will anchor the station's 3-7 p.m. block, as well as serve as program director.

In order to accommodate the switch, Dan Sileo, the former University of Miami football standout, will move to weekdays from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m., the slot previously held by Michael Irvin before the contract of the former NFL star was not renewed earlier this summer.

Sedano, who will debut his WQAM show Tuesday, joked on Rose's 6-10 a.m. show Friday about how odd it must seem to some that the two were engaged in crosstalk on the same airwaves.

For Sedano, 34, it has been a whirlwind, with word coming a day earlier that he also will serve this upcoming season as host of Miami Heat road pregame, halftime and postgame shows from the Sun Sports studios in Fort Lauderdale.

Sedano, a long-time staple in the South Florida market, also will continue in a role with the CBS-4 sports department.

Word of Sedano's emergence at WQAM comes the same week 790 the Ticket began simulcasting its programming on 104.3 FM.

WQAM has been shuffling its programming since the departure of afternoon drive-time host Sid Rosenberg, who since has resurfaced in morning drive on 640 Sports.

WQAM's programming also features Sun Sentinel Miami Dolphins beat writer Omar Kelly and Sun Sentinel Miami Heat beat writer Ira Winderman.
