    Personalities are the lifeblood of commercial stations. And V-103, WVEE-FM (103.3) has a killer lineup: Frank Ski, Wanda Smith and Miss Sophia (mornings), Porsche Foxx (midday), Ryan Cameron (afternoon drive), Greg Street (evenings) and Joyce Littel (late night).

    Personalities are the lifeblood of commercial stations. And V-103, WVEE-FM (103.3) has a killer lineup: Frank Ski, Wanda Smith and Miss Sophia (mornings), Porsche Foxx (midday), Ryan Cameron (afternoon drive), Greg Street (evenings) and Joyce Littel (late night). It’s not only the music (pop-hop/R&B) their listeners tune in to hear; it’s also the hosts. More than those at any other station, V-103’s on-air personalities have worked to create a familial bond with their listeners that transcends their ’hood fame. less...

But we'll hand it to 'em - they at least have good taste in the stuff they overplay. Their hip-hop is heavy on hooks and the R&B is light on histrionic mush, and they're at least as essential to launching locals nationally as rock station 99X. Late at night, the mix shows bring the party straight to your car. And in the morning, Ryan Cameron's morning show manages to entertain without being obnoxious (though we do miss Bill Campbell as co-host). less...

    The Beat WBTS 95.5 FM
    Who'd have thought that Atlanta's most popular urban music station would be the brainchild of the AJC's parent company? After switching from a country format to a mix of teen pop (Britney, Christina) and rap/R&B (Eminem, Destiny's Child), 95.5 has taken off with Atlanta's listening audience.more...
