Big drive time changes at Entercom Hip-Hop/R&B “V-103” WVEE Atlanta as Big Tigger moves to mornings to host “The Morning Culture with Big Tigger” and Kenny Burns returns to the station for afternoons. The new lineup will debut Aug. 17.
Tigger replaces the exiting Frank Ski, who was in his second stint at the station, returning in 2018 after previously anchoring mornings from 1998-2012. His exit is voluntary, the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.
“During his time with us at V-103, I have seen Big Tigger take over Atlanta as a premier talent and generous community activist who is connected to the people. We believe he will bring his high energy and creativity to mornings at the station,” Rick Caffey, Senior VP/Market Manager said in a release. “Just as important, we see Kenny Burns bringing his added years of experience, industry work and current show success to the station and we’re excited to welcome him back.”
Tigger joined the station in 2013. He also serves as the official DJ and Music Director of the Atlanta Hawks as well as a DJ for Atlanta Falcons tailgates. He also hosts a number of BET Networks shows, including “Rap City: The Basement,” “106 & Park,” “BET Awards Show Post Party,” and the “BET Awards Red Carpet Show.”
“I am extremely excited for the opportunity to wake up Atlanta every morning with good energy, good music, and a good time,” Tigger added.
Burns is an entrepreneur, producer and author with 20 years of experience across the entertainment, music, fashion, radio, television and marketing industries. The move marks Burns’ second stint with V-103, as he previously worked as an on-air host from 2011 to 2013.
“I am excited to announce that ‘the people’s champ’ is coming back to ‘the people’s station,’ V-103,” Burns remarked. “I am ready to work hard to inspire and entertain Atlanta and beyond and can’t wait to connect with my audience every afternoon.”
