Freddy Mac Joins Q102 WKRQ in Cincinnati for Afternoons with Natalie Jones

Freddy Mac is added to afternoon show at Hot AC “Q102” WKRQ in Cincinnati, where he joins co-host Natalie Jones. Mac was previously midday host at “K92” WXLK Roanoke.

“We're very excited to bring Freddy’s authentic and upbeat personality to the Tri-State’s drive home,” said VP/Market manager Mike Frederick. “He and Natalie will be a great team!”

Here is their blog at Q102.

Freddy Mac tells cincinnati.com, “I saw the opening on a radio-job website and then applied. I hesitated at first because I saw WKRQ, and I thought, legendary call letters. In the radio-professional community, the name definitely rings out as one of the best stations in the country.

Mac says, "When I saw that job opening for afternoons, I couldn’t believe it, in the best way possible. The legacy amongst the radio community and obviously the community here in the area speaks volumes. “I just decided to give it a try. Shoot my shot, and throw my name in the hat, and probably a week or so later, I got a call from the program director here, Patti Marshall. "

"I was told when interviewing, that Marshall wasn’t looking for a DJ to just talk over songs and just talk about the music, per se," Mac says. "She was looking for someone to host and create content, so we have some free rein, both Natalie and I, to talk about different things, life, whatever’s going on. Get the community involved, get listeners involved, to call in and share their opinions or experiences on whatever it is we’re talking about, in between playing music, all your favorite songs on your drive home.”

Black made a surprise return to radio this week at her old stomping grounds as a guest host on The AM Clique Morning Show this week on 92Q (WERQ-FM Baltimore).

iHeart's Power 99 (WUSL-FM Philadelphia) midday host Cappuchino exits the station. She's been with the station since 2012. 'Way Up with Angela Yee' is now heard on Power 99 as one of the 30 affiliates that carry the syndicated program across the country.

Questlove went to Instagram to celebrate the word “jawn” being recognized as an official word in the Merriam-Webster Dictionary. The dialectic term is native to his hometown. In Philadelphia and Eastern PA, “jawn” evolved as a variant of “joint,” originally denoting a place. “Jawn” has been used to describe almost anything that one need not or cannot give a specific name to. Suddenly jawn has become not cool to use.
