Seattle Radio: KHTP Adds Eric Powers, Anthony Ray

Eric Powers
Entercom/Seattle has announced the appointment of  Eric Powers as the new Program Director for KHTP Hot 103.7 FM.  He will also handle afternoon from 2-6pm, effective July 5.

Rap artist Anthony Ray, better known as Sir Mix-A-Lot, also joins the Rhythmic AC outlet for morning drive from 5-9am. Powers was one of the first air personalities on Entercom's KNDD in the 90's. He later joined KUBE-FM as afternoon host as well as Program Director for almost twenty years. During that time he was also PD for KBKS-FM.

"We're so excited to have Eric Powers on board to lead Hot 103.7. He is the guy who made all the songs HOT 103.7 now play, hits in the first place," said Entercom Seattle VP/Programming and Operations Dave Richards. "With two local Seattle icons, Sir Mix-A-Lot in Mornings and Powers in afternoons, Hot 103.7 is ready to launch into the next stratosphere."

"They gave me Sea-Town (Seattle) in the Morning? Wait until you hear my traffic reports," said Sir Mix-A-Lot. "Who better to discuss home than a true homey. You can't talk about the town if you are not from the town. Morning Drive will be 100% throwbacks, 100% hot tracks and 100% fur hat."

"I couldn't be more excited and grateful for the opportunity to lead this brand and be back on the air," added Powers. "Entercom truly creates unique audio brands and I'm excited to be a part of it. I'm equally fired up to partner with Seattle's icon, Sir Mix-A-Lot. A huge thanks to Dave Richards, Jack Hutchison and Pat Paxton."
