Sir Mix-A-Lot and Eric Powers Join Hot 103.7 Seattle Line-Up


Entercom Seattle announced today that award-winning rap artist Anthony Ray, better known as Sir Mix-A-Lot, and Seattle radio veteran Eric Powers will join the KHTP-FM HOT 103.7 line-up.

“We’re so excited to have Eric Powers on board to lead HOT 103.7. He is the guy who made all the songs HOT 103.7 now play, hits in the first place,” said Dave Richards, Vice President of Programming and Operations, Entercom Seattle. “With two local Seattle icons, Sir Mix-A-Lot in Mornings and Powers in afternoons, HOT 103.7 is ready to launch into the next stratosphere.”

“They gave me Sea-Town (Seattle) in the Morning? Wait until you hear my traffic reports,” said Sir Mix-A-Lot. “Who better to discuss home than a true homey. You can’t talk about the town if you are not from the town. Morning Drive will be 100% throwbacks, 100% hot tracks and 100% fur hat.”

“I couldn’t be more excited and grateful for the opportunity to lead this brand and be back on the air,” said Eric Powers. “Entercom truly creates unique audio brands and I’m excited to be a part of it.
