Radio One has  announced the launching of a new morning show, "The Morning Hustle" with Angie Ange, Jordan and Lore'l, on Urban WKYS 93.9 FM Washington, DC, weekdays from 6-10am. "When Jordan came to DC the first time, we immediately connected and have remained great friends. Lore'l is a big burst of energy and love. I'm looking forward to what we will bring to the mornings together," said Ange.

"On Air" Jordan, formerly known as Shorty da Prince, is a familiar voice to DC listeners as he was the host of WKYS's night show from 2014-17. Before taking a hiatus from radio, Jordan was a staple in the DC community and was known for hosting the hottest parties, uplifting the youth and creating platforms for local artists to be heard.

Jordan commented, "It's a blessing for the people of DC to welcome me back with love and an honor to do mornings alongside a DMV Legend...Queen Angie Ange! Lore'l is a boss lady with personality and has a real story to tell, and DC loves the real."

Brooklyn born, Lore'l is known for her beauty and boldness on Season 3 of VH1's "Love & Hip Hop: New York," as well as her podcasts "Bully and the Beast" and "Lip Service." "What an honor to be a part of something so game changing. The dynamic energy the three of us bring will truly be unmatched," added Lore'l.

"I'm excited about The Morning Hustle and the dynamic show they will bring to the WKYS listeners every morning. They each have such unique personalities and I'm confident that the expansion of this show will continue to strengthen the WKYS brand," said VP/Programming Kashon Powell.

Senior Regional Vice President Jeff Wilson added, "We have combined three of the most lively and engaging people on the planet to wake-up one of the most vibrant districts in the universe."
