Market Manager, Geniece Granville commented, “We just signed on as an affiliate and I look forward to working with Chubb Rock and SiMan.  We look forward to seeing how our listeners respond.”  At the other new morning show affiliate, owner Jeff Jacobs added, “Chubb’s show brings validity and notoriety in the morning to our Classic Hip Hop station with our core demo.”

Chubb Rock’s two weekend shows have also been expanding their footprint across America as Authentic Caribbean has been added to several frequencies in the Allentown/Bethlehem/Easton, PA region. Meanwhile, the weekly mix show, Diggin’ in Tha Crates, has added seven (7) affiliates including WUFO in Buffalo, WMNX in Wilmington, NC, and most notably, WHUR, the #1 music radio station in Washington, D.C.  Regarding that addition in our nation’s capital, WHUR’s Program Director Al Payne noted, “Chubb has been part of the WHUR family for some time and I’ve been waiting on the opportunity to fold him into the flagship’s line up.  Mission accomplished!  Each show is an EPIC journey back to our youth with unmatched content and song selection.  BRAVO!”

Following a successful career as a Hip Hop recording artist, Chubb Rock landed on the radio, and it was in New York that his weekend specialty show of Old School mixes came to life. That project paved the way for Chubb Rock’s current weekend show, “Diggin’ In Tha Crates.”  Chubb Rock first teamed up with Georgia Radio Hall of Famer SiMan Baby at WAMJ-FM “Majic 107.5,” where they were #1 with adults and women; known for great celebrity interviews and an up-beat, music intensive show.  The pair have been in syndication for over two years.
