RIVIERA Top 40/Rhythmic KKFR (POWER 98)/PHOENIX PD BRUCE ST. JAMES announces the re-signing of "THE NUTZ IN THE MORNING."
Says ST. JAMES, "THE NUTZ are JOEY BOY and J-PHILLA, and they have been a part of POWER 98.3 since starting here in the afternoon shift in JANUARY of 2002. I am excited and proud to have the pleasure of working with this awesome morning show. The future success of POWER 98.3 relies heavily on THE NUTZ IN THE MORNING continuing to entertain the largest audience in Phoenix! No pressure, guys!"
"Growing up in CALIFORNIA, I was never good at mowing lawns, and failed miserably when I attempted to sell oranges at the age of 9, so I found something I was ‘OK’ at," commented J-PHILLA. "I dropped out of college to do radio, and I am elated that RIVIERA is paying me cash under the table and has never asked for my social security number to do so."
JOEY BOY, the other half of THE NUTZ added, "My longest relationship is with J-PHILLA! Ten years! RIVIERA, we love you. Thanks for supporting and not deporting!"
ST. JAMES also announced the signing of the rest of the on-air staff members, including KARLIE HUSTLE, 10a-2p; JX3, 2-6p; SANDRA PENA, 6-10p; and MELISSA THE MIDNIGHT MAMACITA, 10p-1a.
