CBS Urban AC WBAV (V101.9)/CHARLOTTE has launched a new weekday program called “THE SOUL SAFE.” The show is set to debut live from 9-11p, NOVEMBER 3rd with Grammy-nominated singer "THE SOUL PRINCE," CALVIN RICHARDSON as its host.
RICHARDSON follows on the heels of singers AL B! SURE, BRIAN McKNIGHT and KEITH SWEAT as singers-turned-radio hosts.
“I am excited to be branching out into radio with THE SOUL SAFE. I’ve dedicated my career to soul music and it’s an honor to be recognized for it,” said RICHARDSON. “THE SOUL SAFE is another vehicle to bring this music to the people while reaching my fan base and developing my brand.”
“When we learned that CALVIN was interested in doing a radio show, we leapt at the opportunity to be in business with The SOUL PRINCE,” said WBAV OM TERRI AVERY. “CALVIN represents authenticity in modern soul music and he brings tremendous credibility and energy to our station.”
