CLEAR CHANNEL Top 40/Rhythmic WKTU/NEW YORK afternooner HOLLYWOOD HAMILTON will also be heard in afternoons, from 2-7p, at sister Hot AC KBIG (104.3 MY FM)/LOS ANGELES, via voicetracking.
HAMILTON is an L.A. veteran from his time doing afternoons at KIIS-FM from 1986-92, transitioning to mornings at sister Top 40/Rhythmic KGGI/RIVERSIDE for two years and even a stint doing wakeups at CBS Oldies KRTH (K-EARTH 101)/LOS ANGELES.
CLEAR CHANNEL/L.A. Market Manager/Pres. GREG ASHLOCK said, “HOLLYWOOD kind of fell into our laps. It’s rare that you have an opportunity to fill a slot with someone of his credentials and success. We couldn’t be happier. Plus, he’s just fun with a magnetic personality, which perfectly aligns with the upbeat presentation at MYfm.”
104.3 MYfm PD ANDREW JEFFRIES commented, “We’re all very happy to have HOLLYWOOD joining our team. He’s a talented DJ who grew up in LA and has amazing connections with the stars and local celebs. This appointment compliments the next stage of MYfm’s evolution. Now you can wake up with our VALENTINE and go home with HOLLYWOOD ... and there is more to come yet.”
HOLLYWOOD said, “Being back on air in LOS ANGELES is fantastic! From taking a tour of the MYfm facility and sitting down with ANDREW and the staff, I instantly knew this was going to be the right place for me. Love it!”
He will continued to host two weekend syndicated shows for UNITED STATIONS -- "Weekend Top 10 and "HOLLYWOOD HAMILTON's Remix Top 40."
