PHILIPSBURG:---- My88.3FM will launch its new daily lineup of radio shows on Monday, November 19, spearheaded by its morning and mid-morning-to-afternoon programs which the station announced over the weekend.
Local celebrity King Vers and Sjenaya will hold down the coveted morning slots on My88.3 with “My A.M. Shine”, giving the station a morning broadcast with new, innovative ideas to involve the community first and foremost as well as businesses who wish to advertise on the show/station.
My A.M. Shine will also give listeners the opportunity to win cash daily, engaging the community through life changing opportunities, on-air activities and direct in-person contact with listeners. Informative and out-of-the-box topics will also be discussed, weekly games, pranks and new segments never attempted on radio on St. Maarten. My A.M. Shine will run daily from 7:00am to 10:30am.
Following My. A.M. Shine on the airwaves in the mid-morning slot will be The King James Show hosted by Kelvin James aka “King James” with his sidekick DJ Kembe. This program will focus primarily on music with 15-minutes mixes, engaging segments, news updates, local and international sports and much more. Both of the shows will be guided by Production Director Omari Ferrari. The King James Show will run daily from 10:30am to 2:00pm.
“We are very excited about the potential of both of these shows,” Station Manager of My88.3 Mike Granger said. “A lot of thought and preparation are going into both shows, with creative ideas to approach radio as the strength of both shows. I wish I could unveil everything that these dynamic hosts will be bringing, but good things come to those who wait. We will also include all forms of modern media as part of our broadcasts including live streaming and fully taking advantage of that medium.
“Our hosts are no strangers to the entertainment industry and have huge followings. My88.3 wants to be different and we always want to keep our listeners and business that decide to support our shows engaged. There will be a lot of information coming out about the shows, promo videos, the full works to make sure that come November 19 and beyond, you keep it locked to My88.3,” Granger said.
He added that the station will also be announcing the rest of its daily lineup over the next few days. “About 80% of the station will remain in our adult contemporary format, with smooth music and Top 40 chart hits dominating the airwaves. With the exception of the early morning show (My A.M. Shine) all other shows will be heavily music centric. From 3pm to 7pm for example, there will be strictly great music, modern and old school, a formula that people have come to expect and love from My88.3.,” Granger said.
“We will also be hosting a re-launch event for the entire station in November. More info will come about that. We have a lot in store for radio on St. Maarten. We aim to be a true community station where service clubs, foundations ect can partner with us to meet their objectives and where we entertain, enlighten and empower,” Granger concluded.
