The Core DJs have launched an internationally syndicated radio show, which made its debut two weeks ago.
The new show has already been picked up by close to 20 radio stations so far, including affiliates in Belgium, Ghana and Lagos, Nigeria.
The show, which follows an urban/rhythmic format, is assembled at the top of the week by a crew of approximately eight members of the Core DJs organization, with Vice President Derek The Bigg DM Jurand serving as Program Director.
Holding the position of host is Uncle Woody, an on-air personality from Charleston, WVs 98.7 The Beat, joined by Dallas duo DLyte and Ebony, better known to K104 FMs listeners as the On-Air Divas.
The Core DJs Radio show is distributed to affiliate radio stations every Wednesday of the week.
The feedback weve gotten so far is excellent, Core DJs Founder and CEO Tony Neal told AllHipHop.com. [The] first week, five stations aired it; this past week, eleven. Next week looks like it will be 17 or 18 plus overseas. We also have a few internet stations that [also] want to air the show.
The Core DJs Radio show can currently be heard on stations in Georgia, Indiana, Mississippi, Nebraska, North and South Carolina, and West Virginia. It also airs on Sirius/XMs Shade 45 on Sundays at 1pm.
While the playlist is very hit driven, Neal says that The Core Djs Radio Show will continue the Core DJs mission of breaking new music, thus giving up-and-coming artists, both in the US and overseas, the opportunity to obtain commercial airplay in various markets.
Once the Core DJs Radio Show has become well established across the board, the organization plans to launch a similar Urban Adult Contemporary show called The Lesson, which will play a variety of R&B and Old School music.
