V-103 Atlanta Launches V-103 International on WVEE HD2

Entercom, a leading media and entertainment company and one of the two largest radio broadcasters in the U.S., announced the launch of V-103 International (WVEE-HD2) in Atlanta. The station, which is powered by the U.S. Census Bureau, will feature a wide range of genres including afro beats, dance hall, reggae, soca, hip hop, top 40 and big chune, and will serve as a complement to sister station V-103 (WVEE-FM).
 As part of the launch, on-air personalities Osei “The Dark Secret” Kweku and Mix Master David will expertly curate the station programmed by Reggie Rouse, Urban Format Captain, Entercom, and Brand Manager, V-103 (WVEE-FM). Osei and Mix Master David will co-host the “International Show” live on V-103 on Saturdays from 5:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m. ET.


“Atlanta is an international city and we have a responsibility to serve everyone in this great city 24 hours a day, seven days a week,” said Rouse. “V-103 International strives to build an inclusive community for those looking for a diverse and engaging listening experience, both in this great city and nationwide via RADIO.COM.”

Osei “The Dark Secret” Kweku has managed to merge his love for music and philanthropy into a trans-continental culture exchange by way of digital media. While attending Hampton University, Kweku launched his radio career as an on-air personality for 103.9 The Beat, hosting a variety of segments and interviewing some of the industry’s most notable figures. He has since been heard on airwaves in many cities along the East coast. In 2012, Kweku launched Dark Secret International which is dedicated to developing long term business relationships with African, Asian and Hispanic communities across the globe. Alongside his extensive body of work, Kweku’s not-for-profit organization, America to Africa, facilitates educational travel to his native Ghana for central-city Atlanta middle and high school students.
