Cortney Hicks, who has served as afternoon talent, will shift into her new
role as the Daytime announcer from 10am – 3pm. She will also continue her
duties as V 101.9 Music Director.

“The on air finesse that Cortney brought to afternoons, will be the jolt
that we need in middays. She has a unique ability to make every listener
believe she’s their personal friend,” noted Operations Manager Jeff

With Cortney Hicks moving to middays, this means that the afternoon
position will be filled by a familiar friend, named Tone X. Tone X has
performed on a wide array of platforms. He was a mainstay as writer and

WBAV as afternoon drive co-host, and has also worked within the Charlotte
market, but now “The People’s Host” is back with Beasley. Listeners may
hear Fly Ty during programming, Monday – Friday 6am – 10am.

“It feels good to welcome back someone like Fly Ty, who has made his mark
in the community,” added Anderson. “We’ve missed him during his brief
absence from radio!”

since 2012 when he was Assistant PD / Production Director for Radio One
WQNC/WPZS. He recently worked with CBS in Atlanta and also worked
independently with his personal production company. DJ Rham is now back as
the Production/Imaging Director for WBAV/WPEG.

managed to be a creative genius in story-telling, through imaging and
production,” commented Anderson.

After taking an extended break from radio, Stu “Hanna’s Baby Boy” Robinson
has made his return to the Carolinas. Stu was most recently afternoon drive
talent / Music Director for WBTP Tampa. Stu also previously worked in
Charlotte for Radio One’s WCHH when it was Hot 92.7. Stu is now back on air
with WBAV, tracking evenings, 7pm Midnight.

Bill Schoening,” said Anderson. “I have been given a chance to build a team
of talented radio professionals who can raise the bar of radio excellence
in the Queen City.”

and RB!” announces details of recent staff changes.

After an extensive search, Jeff Anderson has hired Ya Girl Nikki for the
Evening host on Power 98, heard weekdays from 7pm – Midnight. Nikki most
recently served as a part-time on air announcer at WPEG’s sister station
(WZFX) in Fayetteville, NC.

Nikki’s talent has caught my attention for years!” said Operations Manager
Jeff Uzi D Anderson. “I’m totally convinced that Nikki’s impressive work
ethic, excellence in production, and outstanding energy will bring a needed
boost to Charlotte’s airwaves.”

talent, will shift into his new role as a new member of The Maddhouse
Morning Show. He will also continue his duties as Power 98 Music Director.

player, said Anderson. “His addition to the morning team is not only a
major move, but he also compliments the team for a thriving future as an
elite live and local morning show.”

With Mr. Incognito moving to mornings, this means that the afternoon
position will be filled by newcomer John Sport E. Odie Adams. Sport E. Odie
is well known in Charlotte and has established a highly respectable and
reputable street presence in the Queen City. He will host the afternoon
shift from 3p.m.-7p.m., Monday through Friday.

“Sport E. Odie brings his impressive work ethic and passion for branding

swap for a translator the next play to make the group legal in Phoenix?

LMA with the buyer will start in April.

This is to announce that a contract has been signed and an application is
being filed with the FCC for the transfer of radio station KMVP-AM,
Phoenix, Arizona from Bonneville International Corporation to Farmworker
