HOLLYWOOD and GOUMBA JOHNNY keep New Yorkers smiling on their way home; their chemistry, coupled with KTU’s music, have led us to our best numbers ever in afternoon drive."
"I am truly blessed to have the opportunity to renew with the hottest station in New York; it is a new high in my career," HAMILTON said. "Plus now being able to host and share what the magic is all about here at 'KTU with our syndicated weekend mix show is going to be electrifying."
