"Rocsi on the Radio" New Syndicated Urban Radio Show

Westwood One announced today the launch of a new 4-hour urban program hosted by radio and TV star Rocsi. "Rocsi on the Radio" will feature music from the most current urban and R&B artists, celebrity interviews, listener call-ins and segments such as the industry insider report Through the Wire and the listener interactive Roc the Mic. Rocsi on the Radio will debut nationwide on April 25, 2011.

“Rocsi has become one of the hottest superstars of the Hip-Hop and R&B music culture,” said Max Krasny, EVP Westwood One Entertainment. “Rocsi’s celebrity status, industry connections and extensive radio experience as co-host of BET’s 106 & Park Weekend Countdown will be a hit with both audiences and advertisers nationwide.”

“I have always been amazed at how radio can make personal, intimate connections with huge, diverse audiences,” said Rocsi. “I am excited to have the opportunity to host my own national show and couldn’t have a better partner than Westwood One.”

Since 2006, Rocsi has co-anchored (with Terrence J) BET’s flagship show, 106 & Park, which can be seen in 85 million households across the globe, from the U.S. to the U.K., from Canada to the Caribbean, from Jamaica to Japan. The New Orleans-bred, former Power 92 (WPWX) Chicago radio personality boasts a wealth of media experience. Before landing on BET in 2006, Rocsi developed her broadcasting talent with radio experience in the Chicago, Dallas, Boston and New Orleans markets. Rocsi also co-hosts Westwood One’s BET 106 & Park Weekend Countdown along with Terrence J.
