New York City radio station HOT 97 is teaming up with Love & Hip Hop producer Mona Scott Young and VH1 on a new project entitled “This Is HOT 97.” The show will be premiering on VH1 March 31 at 10:30 PM ET.
The show will be a 30-minute unscripted series that gives viewers a comedic look inside of the HOT 97 station. The series will also feature cameos from the well-known celebrities who regularly visit HOT 97 as on-air guests including Kanye West, Macklemore, Rick Ross, Mack Wilds, Wale and many more.
The HOT 97 cast of characters functions more as a family than a group of coworkers. From an outsider’s perspective, HOT 97 is a well-oiled machine churning out music, news and pop culture, but when the “ON AIR” sign goes off; viewers will see that this cast is just as lovingly dysfunctional as any other family. This crew goes hard for each other, but above all they live, eat and breathe HOT 97.
The primary cast of “This is HOT 97” consists of; Ebro Darden, Funkmaster Flex, Angie Martinez, Cipha Sounds, Rosenberg, Laura Stylez, Miss Info, Karlie Hustle, DJ Enuff, Big Dennis, Shani Kulture and Drewski.
