“103.5 The Beat is back and ready to take back Hip Hop’s Heavy Weight Title in Miami,” said Doc Wynter, Senior Vice President of Urban Programming, Clear Channel Media and Entertainment. While The Beat was ‘away’ we got a little harder and this time around we’re just straight ‘bangin’ hip hop. Many of the biggest stars in the hip hop world live in Miami, so the format was a natural choice for this community.”
