This summer, Emcee N.I.C.E. and Chantal “Chanie G” Grayson planned to host a Christian Hip Hop Summer Fest in Los Angeles, but COVID-19 so they changed direction to something of the same magnitude, but greater: A Los Angeles-based whole radio station.
The station is called Rhythm & Praise Radio and it launched on August 10, 2020 with 14 new shows and hosts. Here’s the lineup:
Emcee N.I.C.E. and Chanie G, Rhythm & Praise Radio co-curators and owners of the Stellar Award winning God’s House of Hip Hop radio station powered by Dash, will host the show Praise House Jamz on Saturdays 12 p.m. – 2 p.m. PDT. Married Couple, Juan L. Baxter and Kala Moses Baxter, R&P Radio co-curators and syndicated radio personalities, will host Those Baxters in the Morning that will air Monday – Friday 8 a.m. – 10 a.m. PDT. Additionally, urban gospel music star Uncle Reece hosts Friday Night Fire With Uncle Reece on Friday nights from 7 p.m. – 9 p.m. PDT and Hasan “Mr. Root” James, editor in chief for Root Magazine, will host The Root Box on Mondays 5 p.m. – 7 p.m. PDT. Comedian Cletus Kassady will host The Cletus Kassady Show on Wednesdays 3 p.m. – 5 p.m. Rhythm & Praise artist and radio veteran Dezzie hosts The Big Show With Dezzie on Wednesdays 10 a.m. – 12 p.m. PDT and NAACP Image Awards and Stellar Awards winning music supervisor Angela “Moonbaby” Jollivette will host UnRestricted With Moonbaby on Thursdays 7 p.m. – 9 p.m. PDT.
