|RADIO ONLINE | Friday, December 17, 2021|
Audacy welcomes comedian, author, podcaster and actress Patricia Williams (aka Ms. Pat) and singer, dancer and actress Shamea Morton as co-hosts of "The Big Tigger Morning Show" on WVEE-FM (V-103) in Atlanta. The duo will be heard alongside show host Big Tigger, weekdays from 6-10am ET, beginning January 3.
"We're excited about the addition of two local superstars to our weekday morning show alongside Big Tigger," said Audacy Atlanta Senior Vice President and Market Manager Rick Caffey. "Their personalities and style, coupled with their connection to our city will bring a fun and unique layer to the show."
"I'm happy to be joining 'The Big Tigger Morning Show' with him and Shamea," added Ms. Pat. "As an Atlanta native born at Grady in the basement and raised on Fairstreet Bottom, I never thought I would one day be co-hosting on V-103. When you put it out in the universe the universe will give it back to you."
In August 2021, Ms. Pat's multi-cam sitcom "The Ms. Pat Show" premiered on BET+. In September 2021, she returned to her hometown of Atlanta for her first hour standup special, which will premiere on Netflix in 2022. In 2017, she published her memoir "Rabbit" with Harper Collins, which was nominated for an NAACP Award for Outstanding Literary Work. In addition to her other projects, Ms. Pat has long been a favorite with standup critics and fans. In 2019, she was hailed by Variety as a "Top 10 Comic to Watch."
"I grew up in this city listening to this station and I am indebted to sharing my love for the people, the community and the culture on this iconic brand with these two legends," said Morton.
Morton is a former member of the quartet Co-Ed, whose hit "Roll Wit Me," was named to Billboard's Hot R&B / Hip-Hop singles chart. She joined the Atlanta Hawks cheerleading squad from 2003-2014, cheered for the Atlanta Falcons for five seasons, including 2011 and 2012 as captain, and danced for the Georgia Force Arena Football League for four seasons. Morton, who made Jezebel Magazine's annual Most Beautiful Atlantan's list in 2012, studied Improv at the renowned Nick Conti's Professional Actor's Studio and took acting classes at the Alliance Theater in Atlanta. She has appeared in the critically hailed film "Drumline."
