Charlie Cook, Operations Manager/Program Director, CUMULUS MEDIA-Nashville, said: Allison (Allison Warren VP/MM of Cumulus Nashville) and I have complete faith in Kenny, who is passionate about both 92Q and this new morning show, to give Nashville its first big live and local show that serves the African-American community. Kenny has worked hard to provide a locally focused show for the Nashville audience. It will be like nothing the community has now.”
Smoov said: “All Middle Tennesseans want to have a good time and that’s what we are going to deliver every morning on the show. You get enough vitriol and nastiness on TV and some of these other radio shows. I want to put on a show that you can drink your coffee too because you know we’re going to give you a smile, some information, a great contest, some music, and BAM…you’re at work!
Thank you, Allison Warren, Charlie Cook, Mike McVay, and Ken Johnson, for this amazing opportunity in the Hottest City in the country.”
