WKYS-FM/Washington DC Announces New Morning Show
|RADIO ONLINE | Tuesday, July 10, 2018|
Angie Ange in the Morning hits the airwaves on Urban WKYS-FM/Washington, DC, beginning July 16. She'll be joined by Deja Perez, who will bring her "What's Poppin!" entertainment report to the show. Joining Ange and Perez will be DJ Money, another DMV native who is also Wale's tour DJ. Additionally, DJ Analyze will be the key mixer on the show.
A DMV native, Howard University alum and the founder of College Is Cool Inc., Ange served as Program Director at Howard University's student station WHBC 830 AM. She started as an intern at a station in the area before joining WKYS as host of the evening show and evetually moving to afternoon drive.
Ange said, "Growing up I would have fun listening to Tom Joyner, Russ Parr and Donnie Simpson. To reach this height in my career and be in a position to give that same energy while also inspiring and enlightening our listeners as they start their day is the opportunity of a lifetime. Outside of our founder Ms. Cathy Hughes, I have never known a woman to anchor her own morning show in Washington, DC. This means so much to me because of the future impact it will have."
Perez, a New Jersey native and Temple University graduate, started her career in Washington, DC, before going on to WRNB-FM (100.3 The Beat) in Philadelphia. Most recently she has been a contributor on Ange's afternoon show with her entertainment feature "What's Poppin!" Her career has also consisted of doing voice overs for corporations including, Ford, Coca Cola, Macy's, T-Mobile, Old Navy and GIANT Magazine.
Deja said, "I am honored to make history with Angie, Money and Analyze as part of the first female driven morning show in decades. I'm looking forward to taking "What's Poppin!" to new heights as part of Angie Ange in the Morning. I'm grateful to have amassed a career that has spanned over a decade; it wouldn't have been possible without the support of the DMV. Thank you!"
