A word to anyone who might be considering applying for a job at New York’s legendary Hot 97 radio station: if you don’t have a sense of humor, you need not apply. If you haven’t seen the first episode sneak peek of This Is Hot 97, you’re missing out on one pf the best new shows on television, the reason being that everyone at the station is hilarious. (And they all get along, which is another refreshing characteristic you don’t see much of on the reality TV scene.)
We got to spend the morning with show stars and morning show hosts Ebro, Rosenberg, Laura Stylez, and Cipha Sounds earlier this week to catch them doing what they do best, and as it turns out, they’re such successful DJs because they’re natural born conversationalists. In their down time, off-air, they spent the morning discussing the plot twists of True Detective, their love for fellow VH1 star Tiny Harris, and Rosenberg’s slimming secret weapon: prunes. In short, it was like hanging with your closest friends, if your closest friends also had one of the most successful radio shows in New York City.
Check out all the photos from our day at Hot 97 and tune in to the TV premiere of the show this Monday at 10:30PM ET/PT!
