Hot 107.9 Moves Erin Rae to Middays & J-Nicks to Afternoons, Adds Incognito for Nights

Radio One's Hot 107.9 (WHTA) announces line up changes that will begin on Monday, April 20.

The changes come after Mz Shyneka and Reec were let go this past week by Radio One Atlanta. Rickey Smiley remains as morning host with overnight host Erin Rae moving to middays from and  former ‘Durrty Boyz” night co-host J Nicks moving to afternoons from 2-7 P.M.

Radio One brings in Z107.9 (WENZ) Cleveland night host Incognito. He will head up a new nationally syndicated night show initially based in Cleveland called "Posted On The Corner." Incognito, a former host on Streetz 94.5, will relocate the show to Atlanta. Radio One stations also adding the show on Monday are 94.5 The Beat in Dallas, Hot 107.5 Detroit, and K97.5 in Raleigh.
