Sway and Tech's
World Famous Wake Up Show will make the move from syndicated radio to an MTV
The award winning hip-hop radio show that started in San Francisco in 1991,
will make the move to MTV and debut this December.
If enough people tune into the show, it could be added to MTV's regular lineup.
The Wake Up Show is one of the most respected syndicated radio shows in history
and showcased many legendary battles and upcoming rappers.
Biggie Smalls received his first radio airplay on the show and Eminem was subsequently
signed by Dr. Dre after his appearance.
Sway took the job as MTV News' hip-hop correspondent in the summer of 2000 and
continues to contribute to The Wake Up Show.
Sway and Tech also
head up Bolo Entertainment, which dropped Sly Boogie's critically acclaimed
album, Judgement Day.
