USRN Names Ramiro To Take Over Weekend Top 30 Rhythmic Mix

UNITED STATIONS RADIO NETWORKS, in conjunction with SEAN "HOLLYWOOD" HAMILTON, has named CLEAR CHANNEL Top 40/Rhythmic WJMN/BOSTON personality RAMIRO as the new host "Weekend Top 30 Rhythmic Mix." Previous host HOLLYWOOD HAMILTON will remain host of the Mainstream Top 40 Mix.
The changeover begins on the weekend of MAY 9th-10th. HAMILTON will also remain in an Executive Producer role for the Rhythmic show, and he will continue to actively contribute interview segments and other feature elements to RAMIRO’s broadcast.
RAMIRO's hiring enables HAMILTON to better juggle his diverse duties, including his new weekday on-air gig at CLEAR CHANNEL AC KBIG (104.3 MYFM)/LOS ANGELES (KBIG-FM), as well as the rollout of "HOLLYWOOD HAMILTON’s Remix Top 40" on USRN.
"Doing three highly-produced weekend shows per week plus a daily shift for both WKTU/NEW YORK and 104.3 MYfm in LOS ANGELES was getting to be too much for HOLLYWOOD," USRN EVP/Programming ANDY DENEMARK noted. "We brainstormed about the best solution, and what we've come up with is a win-win-win. RAMIRO is a major talent on the rise, JAM’N 94.5 is a fantastic station to have as a partner and our affiliates already love his on-air style."
