RADIO ONE Urban WHHL (HOT 104)/ST. LOUIS PD MICKEY JOHNSON said that when it was time for his PM driver STACI STATIC to go on maternity leave he was looking around for a star to fill in. Someone suggested NELLY, who is a close friend of the station and a ST. LOUIS native.
JOHNSON said, “Nah, NELLY’s not going to want to do radio,"But he called him anyway. His people said “Yes.” So the multi-platinum rapper starts today and will be filling in for about a month. JOHNSON’s hoping the hometown hip-hop star will cause some ARBITRON meter wearers to make their way to HOT 104."
