CLEAR CHANNEL Rhythmic AC KHHT (HOT 92.3)/LOS ANGELES has finally made it official. After a month of surprise on-air appearances by platinum selling artist AL B. SURE! the station announced he will host the 9a-noon shift every weekday effective immediately. The time slot has been jockless since the station signed on in 2001.
"To say I am thrilled to have AL B. SURE! on the air here at HOT would be an understatement," says PD R DUB! "AL was a major force in R&B music in the '80s and '90s, an era that makes up a big portion of the music we play at HOT 92.3, and he continues to blaze new trails in the R&B world. It’s exciting to see how the listeners react to AL on the air. So many people grew up listening to his music, and the chance to hear him live on the air every day is pretty special. He’s a wonderful and welcome addition to our talent lineup and will be a tremendous asset to the HOT 92.3 vision."
SURE! said he was "elated to be joining an airstaff and executive team that he has great respect for." He continued by saying, "The HOT 92.3 building is full of dedicated professionals who truly love and understand the unique music we play, it’s no wonder HOT 92.3 is one of the most listened-to stations in SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA. I am not just another artist who wants to be on the radio. I am a professional with great respect for the radio business and industry and know how to survive the ride. My radio career began seven years ago in the BAY AREA at 98.1 KISS FM with a show called 'The Secret Garden,' and now I am ready to do it B-I-G in L.A.!"
