*Miles Ahead Broadcasting is pleased to announce that Café Mocha Radio continues to expand its market reach with the addition of Washington, DC’s WHUR 96.3 FM, Richmond, VA’s Radio One WKJS/WKJM-FM Columbus, Georgia’s WKZJ92.7FM, Brunswick GA WBGA/B92.7 Jams’, KZWA-FM in Lake Charles, LA and KKST-FM Alexandria, LA.
In recent months, today’s hottest celebrities from Kevin Hart, The Braxtons, Mary Mary, Michael Ealy, Mike Epps, Jordin Sparks and Paula Patton; to health aficionados Dr. Drew and Dr. Oz have been featured on the weekly weekend show.
Café Mocha Radio will increase its audience and hold the distinction of being the only syndicated show to air across the entire WHUR Network experience; that includes WHUR’s Sirius XM, HUR Voices channel 141, WHUR-World HD and the new Saturday morning slot on WHUR 96.3FM.
The nation’s only show for women of color made its debut on the Davis Broadcasting station WKZJ 92.7 in Columbus, Georgiain May where it has fast-become a Saturday afternoon staple. Says WKZJ Operations Manager Carl Conner, “We’re looking for Café Mocha to enhance our appeal among female listeners with its fresh, relatable content, exclusive entertainment coverage, and localized news segments.”
“I was immediately intrigued by the concept of Café Mocha being from a female perspective, so when I first heard MC Lyte, funny lady Loni Love, and Angelique bring their own brand of entertainment and news together, I knew my female listeners would be hooked,” says Yolanda Neely, Program Director at WBGA/B92.7Jams.
In addition to bringing on affiliates inNorfolk,VA and Memphis,TN earlier in the year, Café Mocha remains on New York City’s WBLS 107.5 FM following its merger with WRKS 98.7 FM. The show has enjoyed top ratings in its weekend time slot with both male and female demographics thanks to PPM-friendly new features “Espresso” minute, the “Swag Award” and the “Lyte Mix.”
Recent Café Mocha specials include backstage exclusives with the cast of Steve Harvey’s “Think Like a Man,” “Live at the 2012 Essence Music Festival,” Backstage at the “Soul Man,” wrap party with Cedric the Entertainer and Niecy Nash, and Behind the Screen with the cast of the highly-anticipated film “Sparkle.” These exclusive entertainment segments, coupled with localized news updates, have been the catalyst for Café Mocha’s rapid new market additions that rival only that of Steve Harvey and Rickey Smiley’s nationally syndicated morning shows, respectively. Upcoming fall promotions include a “Girlfriends” retreat in the Bahamas and women’s empowerment seminars. “As a show led by women our goal is to make sure we deliver relevant, fun and unique content with promotions that empower our sisters,” says executive producer Sheila Eldridge.
