Mill” Miller makes the switch from public and digital radio to join Terrell as her co-host.

We at Cumulus Huntsville are excited about making WHRP even more local and engaged by airing the only live and local urban radio show in the mornings! Toni and T. Mill will be an incredible pair, both entertaining and informative, for the Tennessee Valley to wake up and start their day with…add to that an incredible talent like DJ Chocolate to middays…Look out Huntsville, it’s about to get fun,” says John Lewis, Vice President/Market Manager.
