"The Donnie Simpson Weekend Show" will launch this Sunday, June 27 and every Sunday thereafter on Radio One's WOSF (105.3 RNB) in Charlotte. Simpson currently hosts afternoons on WMMJ in the DMV area with co-host Tony Perkins. The two-hour weekend show includes music and interviews from Simpson's archives. The program will be co-hosted by Tony Perkins, a radio and TV broadcaster and two-time Emmy award winner.

The show will be centered around a specific music theme such as "Best Bands" or "Blue Eyed Soul Singers" to name a few. Program features include Huggy Lowdown's Celebrity Snitch where Huggy will "snitch" on the lighter side of the most pressing news and entertainment happenings of the day.

Simpson is the ruling Washington DC radio icon. Over his career, which has spanned 51 years, he's entertained listeners from WJLB in Detroit to WKYS and WMMJ in Washington, and on television as host of BET's Video Soul. Simpson has been considered one of the nation's first video jockeys. Most recently, he was inducted into The Radio Hall of Fame Class of 2020.

"People around the country got to watch me on Video Soul for many years, but didn't get to check me out on my first Love, radio. Only Detroit and DC would suffer that experience. So I'm really excited for the rest of the country to finally hear what I do on the radio," said Simpson.

Radio One/Charlotte Operations Manager Jeff "Uzi D" Anderson added, "We are excited to add Donnie Simpson to our weekend line-up. Donnie is an iconic music historian and this show will be a well-received familiar voice to our listeners of Charlotte."
