Headkrack Exits “The Morning Hustle” as Kyle Santillian Formerly of 107.5 WGCI Joins The Show

Today, Urban One Inc.’s Reach Media and Radio One announced that Kyle Santillian, one of Chicago’s most popular personalities, is joining the nationally syndicated show The Morning Hustle.

“Kyle is an exceptional morning show anchor. His years of experience and passion for morning radio will be a fantastic addition to The Morning Hustle,” said Colby Tyner, Senior VP Programming of Urban One’s Radio One and Reach Media divisions.

For the past seven years Kyle anchored The Chicago Morning Takeover, where he served as ringleader for a cast that woke up the city every morning with laughs, news, interviews, entertainment gossip , skits, parodies, features, mix shows and more. He’ll bring that infectious energy to The Morning Hustle, now heard in approximately 30 urban markets. Prior to his run in Chicago, he led the 102 Jamz (WJMH) morning show in Greensboro, North Carolina.

“I’m extremely excited to be joining The Morning Hustle,” said Santillian. “Having a chance to be a part of a nationally syndicated show has always been a dream of mine and I don’t take it for granted! Thank you to David Kantor, Colby Colb and thank you to the entire Reach Media team! Now let’s get it!”

The Morning Hustle is the freshest program on radio with an entertaining, humorous, and informative take on urban pop culture from the millennial and Gen-Z point of view, meant to wake up its audience to the beat of today’s Hip Hop.

Meanwhile Headkrack quietly left the show last week as sources report his departure was a “mutual decision” as he did not quit or wasn't fired from the show.

The Morning Hustle was previously a local morning show on 93.9 WKYS in Washington, DC. with Angie Ange as lead host in 2019. Upon his leaving The Rickey Smiley Morning Show, Headkrack joined up with  Angie Ange, On Air Jordan (formerly known as Shorty Da Prince), Lore'l and Billy Sorrells to launch the nationally syndicated version of the show in January 2020 through Reach Media on Urban One stations replacing Rickey Smiley. The changes took place as Rickey Smiley became an Urban Adult formatted show replacing the Tom Joyner Morning Show.

Headkrack is working on other media projects, his music, and hosting TV's Dish Nation.

Headkrack recently released a Dish Nation interview from 2015 with De La Soul - RIP Dave “Trugoy the Dove.”
