RADIO ONE Rhythmic WPHI(100.3THEBEAT)/PHILADELPHIA OM ELROY SMITH has drafted PHILADELHPHIA 76er LOU WILLIAMS for weekend duty. Starting SUNDAY (2/24) WILLIAMS, who plays point guard for the 76ers, will find himself in the ”air-chair” with the “mic in his hand.”
“This is an unusual twist for me, to have a basketball player fascinated by the radio medium,” said ELROY. “When I sat down with LOU, I saw and heard his genuine passion for wanting to be on the air. 100.3 The BEAT will be a perfect match for LOU WILLIAMS. I predict this marriage to be very powerful.”
WILLIAMS was chosen by the SIXERS as the 45th pick of the second round of the 2005 draft. He hails from SNELLVILLE, GEORGIA, a suburb of ATLANTA. In his senior year he won the NAISMITH AWARD as best high school player in the nation.
