DJ Drama, Freeway, Celebrate Launch Of Philadelphia Hip-Hop Station Hot 107.9

Popular Atlanta personality DJ Drama will return to his hometown of Philadelphia tomorrow (December 7), to help celebrate the relaunch of Hip-Hop station Hot 107.9.

In September, the station was flipped on the radio dial from 100.3 The Beat, in addition to being renamed Hot 107.9.

In order to be more competitive in the city,  executives at the Philadelphia-based station brought in Q-Deezy, a Philadelphia native who is featured on Big Boy’s hit Los Angeles -based morning show “Big Boy in the Morning.”

Additionally, the station has hired several new executives, including radio executives Bjorn Henriques, formerly of The Philadelphia Eagles Radio Network.

In addition to DJ Drama, Freeway, Kendra G., Young Chris, Gille Da Kid and a number of local athletes are expected to attend the launch, which takes place at Whisper Nightclub in Rittenhouse Square.

Hot 107.9's DJ Damage, Greg Nitty and DJ Touchtone will also spin during the evening.
