105.1 The Bounce Adds Cortney Hicks and A.P. to Weekend Lineup

Beasley Media Group announces Detroit's 105.1 The BOUNCE (WMGC-FM) will welcome more home grown “Ambassadors” to the station’s new weekend line-up beginning on Saturday, September 2nd at 10am in the Motor City.

Starting Labor Day weekend, Cortney Hicks will now be heard on every Saturday and Sunday from 10am to 3pm. Cortney is known for her many years of hosting popular shows on several Detroit stations, plus shows in other major cities, including Chicago, Washington D.C. and Charlotte N.C.

When asked about her return home and her new role on the Bounce, Cortney commented, "Nothin better than being on the radio in your hometown. Many thanks to Beasley Media Group for the opportunity to stay on board and serve my beloved city!"

In addition, 105.1 The Bounce recently added Detroit Hip Hop radio favorite A.P. “The Absolute Princess” (A.P.) to the team, following a year-long social media campaign in which listeners actually encouraged the station to put her on the station. A.P. will now be heard starting at 7pm on both Saturday and Sunday nights.

“Being back on the radio seems surreal,” said AP. “Just a year ago, I campaigned to be on this station when it launched in the Detroit Market. I spoke it into existence and here I am! Major shout out to "Big AP" Al Payne for putting me back on air I'm grateful for the opportunity. Let’s bounce!”

“Our goal is to assemble a team of the finest in Detroit radio, as well as the best Hip Hop personalities, to navigate our fans through each experience listening to this iconic music,” said Bounce Program Director Al Payne. “That’s why all of our announcers are known as Ambassadors. Cortney and A.P. are shining examples of this mission and I look forward to what they have in store.”

Payne added, “Beginning on Tuesday September 5th, Detroit’s ‘Cuzzin’ Reggie Regg will now be heard every Monday through Friday from 7 to 10pm with his new “Bounce Fam Time” show, followed by DJ Dinero hosting the highly rated ‘Set It Off Radio Party Mix’ from 10pm until midnight. Dinero will also host the all new “Bouncin’ After Dark” slow jam show from midnight – 2am, where we’re going to devote time to “slow bounce” Detroit’s best R & B! This is the only station now able to take you from the bar to the bedroom, with Dinero’s Set It Off Radio Party Mix and Bouncin’ After Dark back to back.”
