Nelly to Host U.K. Radio Show
Nelly will host a new international radio show, beginning on Nov. 6. The ‘Hot in Herre’ rapper will be joining U.K. commercial radio giant Global Radio’s Choice FM channel, hosting the station’s Saturday 3PM slot, where he will play the “biggest and best urban music.”
“We’re thrilled to welcome Nelly to the station,” Choice FM’s program director said. “This is the latest in a series of exclusive takeovers on Choice as we continue to provide our audience with innovative and fresh programming alongside the urban songs they love.”
This is not Nelly’s first foray into radio; he has been filling in as an on-air personality on St. Louis’ Hot 104.1 since August, while the regular host, Staci Static, was on maternity leave.
Nelly’s international radio debut comes just days before the U.K. release his new single, ‘Just a Dream,’ and the release of his sixth studio album, ‘5.0,‘ which hits shelves Nov. 16.
