RickParty of Hot 105 Named Miami's 2014 Best FM Radio Personality
The results are in and the people have spoken! Rick Party is the Miami New Times choice for Best FM Radio Personality. Party hosts Rick Party in the Afternoon on Miami's popular R&B and Oldies station on WHQT Hot 105.
Here's what the Miami New Times said about Rick Party:
"Last spring, a gaping hole yawned in Miami's drive-time radio landscape when a nationally syndication host vacated the afternoons, whose mix of politics and music had reached more than eight million listeners nationwide. Miami's Hot 105.1 FM had a choice on its hands: Find another coast-to-coast program to pick up for the Magic City's listeners, or turn to a local to rescue its airwaves. Hot 105.1 went local, and Miami listeners haven't looked back. Rick Party may have grown up in Chicago, but he joined Hot 105 twenty-two years ago and has since become an institution on the dial. From 3 to 7 p.m. Monday through Friday, Rick Party in the Afternoon makes weekdays feel like weekends. He and his team deliver hilarious takes on the day's topics, entertaining listener discussions, and, of course, great music. Each episode ends with a cute moment from Party's young daughter, Zion. Who needs national talent when the homegrown hosts are this good?"
Party is humbled by the honor. "Thank you Miami New Times for selecting me. Our show is a team effort and we couldn't be more thrilled. Congrats to all the other winners as well," Party said.
