President/CEO Steve Hegwood says,“we’ve installed a new translator W283AY which allows the Streetz brand to serve the other communities in the Charlotte metro including Concord, Kannapolis Huntersville and more,”.
Another move in the upgrade includes adding radio vet Mike Swift as PD and Afternoon Drive Host to WGIV (STREETZ 103.3/100.5) Charlotte. He will join the team Monday (10/16).
Mike Swift recently worked for the State of Louisiana in Plaquemines Parish as a Public Affairs Director and brings nearly a decade and a half of programming experience. He also worked with Cumulus Media Inc./ New Orleans as APD where he held duties as an On-Air Personality and Mix Show DJ on RHYTHMIC/CHR KKND (Power 102.9). Swift’s talents were also used on Alternative Rock station WZRH (Alt 92.3) as the Night Host and Mix Show DJ. He began his radio stint with Cumulus in 2005 soon after Hurricane Katrina as the Night Host on Urban AC KMEZ (Old School 102.9).
Swift said, “I would like to thank Steve Hegwood for giving me this once in a lifetime opportunity, I’m committed to building the Streetz brand and making it synonymous with the city of Charlotte. My goal is to make this brand a positive reflection of the community it serves!”
