Nelly Continues Career In Radio With New UK Show
Rapper Nelly is taking his radio hosting talents international, with a new hosting gig starting this November on Global Radio's Choice in London.
The three-time Grammy Award winning Saint Louis rapper will hit the airwaves starting on Saturday (November 6th) and will host during the early afternoon time slot every Saturday at 3:00PM.
According to a statement issued by Global Radio's Choice, Nelly's show will play the "biggest and best urban music" in addition to a selection of tracks from his upcoming album 5.0.
"We're thrilled to welcome Nelly to the station," Program Director of Choice, Robert D'Ovidio said. "This is the latest in a series of exclusive takeovers on Choice as we continue to provide our audience with innovative and fresh programming alongside the urban songs they love."
In August, Nelly jumped into radio when he filled in for Hot 104.1 host Staci Static, who went on maternity leave.
Nelly's show will launch one week before the UK release of his single "Just A Dream, which hits radio on November 15th.
The rapper's sixth studio album 5.0 is due in stores in the United States on November 16th.
