Cumulus Media’s Westwood One recently announced Rick and Sasha, the fastest-growing Urban AC morning show, has launched on WNBM-FM in New York City and has expanded to 30 plus markets. Now in its second year, Rick and Sasha is up in ratings in 69 percent of its markets against adults 25-54 and up in 83 percent of its markets against women 25-54 (according to Nielson Audio, Metro, P-25-54; W25-54, 6am-10am/5am-9am, Fall 2019/Dec 2019).

“The Rick and Sasha show is growing fast and going BIG! New York is going to LOVE this show!” said Kenny Smoov, Vice President of Urban Programming, Cumulus Media. “There is nothing like getting a historic first-year report card. Rick and Sasha, with George Willborn, not only sounds better than it ever has but is also showing remarkable ratings growth – extraordinary for a second-year show. It is refreshing when the actual numbers match my ear test. This show is poised for long-term greatness.”

The Rick and Sasha show launched January 2019, with former Hot 105 FM/Miami personality Rick Party and former Kiss 104.1 FM/Atlanta personality Sasha The Diva. Comedian George Willborn, former morning co-host of WVAZ Chicago and WHUR Washington, DC, joined the show in January 2020. The team entertains and engages Urban AC listeners looking for great music, hot conversation, a connection to community, and interactive discussions.
