"Hot 102-5 will be Minneapolis' new home for classic hip hop and R&B -- this is a completely unserved audience and we can't wait to introduce the new station to millions of listeners" said iHeartMedia/Minneapolis Senior VP/Programming for Gregg Swedberg.

"We're all about the music on Hot 102.5, and we're going to start by playing a ton of it," said Phelan. "I'm excited to introduce this new format to Minneapolis listeners, it's what they have been asking for."
