Nelly to host St. Louis radio show

Wednesday, August 11, 2010 | 9:38 a.m. CDT

ST. LOUIS — St. Louis rapper Nelly is used to having DJs play his music on the radio. Now, he's the one spinning tunes.

The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports that the rapper has joined St. Louis urban station Hot 104.1 (WHHL-FM) as afternoon drive-time host. He is filling in on the 3-7 p.m. shift for Staci Static, who is on maternity leave.

Station executives expect Nelly's on-air stint to last for about a month.

Program director Mickey Johnson says the station was looking for someone with star power. In addition to playing music, Nelly will conduct interviews.
