Markel and Levy Are Hosting New WOBM AM Radio Show

Posted on January 19, 2016 By

Starting this January, “Preferred Company with Joel Markel and Marianne Levy” has aired in a new 8:00 to 10:00 a.m. time slot on WOBM AM (1160 and 1310) during the Morning Drive, Monday through Friday.

Several years ago Joel Markel, the president and owner of Preferred Home Health Care & Nursing Services, Eatontown, began hosting his own radio show Preferred Company, discussing topics of interest to families, the senior community, and caregivers. In 2014, Townsquare Media, Toms River, even renamed its fourth floor WOBM-AM studio in the Bob Levy Broadcast Center, “The Preferred Home Health Care Studio.”

Because of Bob Levy’s retirement from Bob & Marianne in the Morning, Levy’s wife and co-host Marianne Levy transitioned to Preferred Company with Joel Markel, a show she had already been co-hosting for the past three years. Preferred Company, however, has now expanded from one hour to two and will air five days a week instead of three.

Markel and Levy will continue to discuss the latest issues, trends and challenges in the home health care industry in a “relaxed, advice-oriented, informational and fully interactive” format. Markel is known to use his passion for radio to promote many charitable and nonprofit causes, and to discuss various health and wellness topics. Besides Preferred clients and staff, Markel likes to feature local talent on the show as well.

Listeners are invited to call in or send emails to interact with the hosts. For more information, visit
