GO MEDIA is launching a new modern Hip-Hop radio station, GO 95.3, in MINNEAPOLIS TOMORROW, JANUARY 5th at 3p (CT), by programming uninterrupated 10,000 songs in a row.
GO MEDIA CEO JOE POHLAD commented: “In 2015, we launched GO 96.3 with a focus on providing the best modern Alternative music to TWIN CITIES listeners; we’ve had such a great time building that station -- now it’s time to use the same modern approach and bring a modern Hip-Hop channel to life.”
GO 95.3's playlist will include the likes of KENDRICK LAMAR, KANYE WEST, J. COLE, DRAKE, RIHANNA, THE WEEKND and local artists such as ATMOSPHERE, DOOMTREE and BROTHER ALI.
“Thanks in large part to the crew over at RHYMESAYERS, the hip-hop scene in MINNESOTA is one of the best and most diverse in the country," GO MEDIA Pres. SAM GAGLIARDI said. "The only thing that is missing is a radio station that focuses on mixing the best local music with the biggest national acts & songs. GO 95.3 will focus on just that.”
PETER PARKER will return to the MINNEAPOLIS/ST. PAUL radio market as MD/afternoon-drive host. He has hosted radio shows in BOSTON, WASHINGTON, DC, PHILADELPHIA and CLEVELAND. “I can’t wait to get back on the air in the TWIN CITIES and bring the music that I love to the listeners of GO 95.3," PARKER said.
More on-air hosts will be introduced to the radio station soon.
