iHEARTMEDIA/Los Angeles launched REAL 92.3, “the new home of Hip-Hop and R&B for Los Angeles,” at 9:23a on Friday, February 6th. The station is now playing “10,000 joints in a row” commercial-free under PD Doc Wynter, iHEARTMEDIA SVP/Urban Programming.
“The all-new REAL 92.3 is L.A.’s new home for Real Hip-Hop and R&B featuring hits from contemporary artists like Chris Brown, Jay Z, Drake, Nicki Minaj and Usher— it’s what L.A. listeners have been waiting for,” Wynter said.
“This is an exciting and robust addition to our portfolio of iHEARTMEDIA brands that reach more than nine million people in Los Angeles each week through broadcast radio, digital, social and events. Hip-Hop is thriving and I can’t think of anyone I’d rather have leading the charge than Doc Wynter,” iHEARTMEDIA/Southern California President Greg Ashlock said.
“Doc is the best Urban programmer in America,” iHEARTMEDIA Pres./National Programming Platforms OM Tom Poleman said. “His leadership, passion and creativity — and his incredible track record of success — will have a huge impact on REAL 92.3. We’re thrilled to expand his role with us.”
Look for Big Boy to join the station for wake up duties sometime soon.
