COX RADIO Country KKBQ (93Q)/HOUSTON's ERICA RICO has won the title of "Hottest Woman in Radio" for 2013 according to THEKAYELIST.COM.
"It was an incredibly close contest," explained COX Top 40 WAPE (95.1 WAPE)/JACKSONVILLE morning show host and editor of THEKAYELIST.COM MARK KAYE. "But in the end only one woman can take home the 'Golden Headphones,' and ERICA was the clear winner."
As winner, RICO earns the title of "Hottest Woman in Radio" for an entire year and will also receive a pair of gold "Beats by Dre" headphones encrusted in SWAROVSKI crystals.
The top five hottest women includes RICO, followed by KYLE UNFUG (JOHNJAY & RICH SHOW), FALEN BONSETT (KDWB), LADY LA (101.5 JAMZ) and CHARLA CORN (95.9 THE RANCH).
KAYE decided to take over the contest when he realized it had been abandoned by the editors of POPCRUNCH.COM who hosted it for four years prior. "It was a ton of work," said KAYE. "I realize now why they stopped after four years. But I felt it was important to honor the women of radio in this way, so I gladly took up the task."
The city of PHOENIX, with four women represented, had more broadcasters appear on the list than any other city. FLORIDA, with 10 representatives, was the state with the highest number of women making an appearance. "It makes sense," said KAYE. "PHOENIX and FLORIDA are two of the steamiest places in the country! Where else would you find hot women?"
More than 10,000 people submitted nominations online at THEKAYELIST.COM. The complete list and photos can be found here.
