It's likely that you spend a lot of time listening to the radio while in Atlanta traffic, in the office or while relaxing at home.
Last week's Best of Atlanta poll discovered our city's favorite urban radio personalities. They share a bit of news and lot of laughs in between spinning the latest Drake track or an old school Anita Baker record.
Rickey Smiley Morning Show of HOT 107.9 is the host with the most. As Atlanta's favorite urban radio personality, Rickey does it all: comedian, television host, movies star and father of six. Tune in for your morning laughs and a dose of urban culture.
The energetic and engaging duo behind The Ride with SiMan Baby and Chubb Rock on Majic 107.5 bring it in at a close second place. If you’re looking for a fusion of musical bliss, comedic satire and iconic broadcasting, then don’t change the dial away from Chubb Rock and SiMan Baby.
Wrapping up our top three, Frank and Wanda in the Morning of V-103 are dedicated to connecting our community while working to bring entertainment to listeners of The People’s Station. Frank and Wanda have been an integral part of our local Atlanta community for well over a generation.
Atlanta certainly has an abundance of urban radio personalities. Listen to our celebrity roster of runner-ups for all the radio that you can handle: Big Tigger on V-103, Porsha Foxx of Mix 87.7, Sasha the Diva of Kiss 104.1, Hanging with Yung Joc and Mo Quick of Streetz 94.5, Greg Street of V-103, The Durtty Boyz of Hot 107.9, Morning Groove of KISS 104.1, MZ.
