Hot 97/WQHT Brings ‘Hustle’ to New York

Karlie Hustle has been named new Hot 97/WQHT music director. She succeeds Jill Strada who bolted in June to become program director at a Miami radio station.

Hustle is a former Phoenix program director.

“Programming experience, PPM experience, management skills, organizational skills, work ethic, focus and competitive tenacity were some of the attributes we were looking for in filling this position and we found someone. We also hired a fan of the truest forms of Hip-Hop,” Emmis VP/Programming and Hot 97 program director, Ebro Darden, said in a statement.  “Karlie’s diverse background and high intellect help her to understand the cultural differences New York has compared to other markets around the country. This is very useful in helping Hot 97 serve the local Hip-Hop community.”

Darden added: “Karlie loves doing charity work, being involved in the community and recently was the Music Business teacher at Phoenix College. With all of her life experience, plus her PPM experience, she made the perfect hire for Music Director and an awesome new addition to our programming department.”
