Cumulus Media's Westwood One announces the expansion of its syndicated "Rick and Sasha Show" with the addition of broadcaster, programmer and production talent "Smokin" Tony Richards. He joins the Urban AC morning team which is now on 25-plus stations. His previous stints include air personality and programmer with outlets in New York, Houston, Philadelphia, DC and Chicago.

Richards is relocating from DC to Atlanta to join Rick and Sasha, saying, "This show is going to the moon, and I want to be a part of it. Rick and Sasha are two people who I feel are the future of radio. I am here unselfishly to help the team make it happen."

Rick and Sasha GM and co-creator Gary Bernstein added, "Tony wears so many hats extremely well. He is a brilliant broadcaster, programmer, producer, creative force, as well as an energetic and experienced voice in the room. His talents will immediately be felt on the show."

Rick said, "Tony was instrumental in giving me the name 'Rick Party,' and mentored me early in my career. Adding Tony gives us even more ammo so we can establish a whole new standard for great Urban AC radio."

Sasha added, "I'm very excited to have Tony on the team and look forward to being able to capitalize on his many years of experience to help grow our brand to even greater heights."
