Mz Shyneka, a former host at Atlanta’s Hot 107.9, has landed at rival Streetz 94.5 hosting afternoons.
Mz Shyneka, whose real name is Shyneka Richardson, joined Streetz 94.5 after a standard six-month, non-compete clause in her former contract.
Mz Shyneka started as an intern in 1999 at Hot 107.9. She then worked with Emperor Searcy for several years in the afternoons before he was let go in 2015. She was the solo afternoon host at the station for five years.
After 107.9 let her go earlier this year, she said she was a victim of “pandemic-related cutbacks” at Urban One Atlanta, which owns 107.9. “Every year, I always thought it would be last,” she added on Instagram Live. “I never took a vacation until this time because I was scared.”
The new position will start on October 12th and Mz Shyneka will be bringing her “Word On The Streets” brand to the Street 94.5.
Her new gig has a lot of familiar faces so she will fit right in with Yung JocYung Joc, Ferrari Simmons, Shawty Shawty, Lil Bankhead, among many more of Atlanta’s entertainment elite.
