(New York, NY) – Emmis New York Radio is excited to announce TT Torrez, known for her accomplished work in radio and television across the nation, has accepted the positon of Music Director of WQHT HOT 97 FM, the #1 station for Hip Hop and R&B in the New York tri-state area. TT has worked in several markets throughout her 14-year tenure, including Charlotte, NC, Hartford, CT, Philadelphia, PA, and New York, where she was correspondent, writer, producer, and music programmer for Music Choice television. She has held both on-air and behind-the-scenes positions, most recently working as Afternoon Drive personality and Music Director for Radio One’s WCDX iPower 92.1 in Richmond, VA. “TT has a long and consistent track record of making things happen. After seeing the amazing things she’s done in her career, and learning she was a fan of HOT 97, I couldn’t pass up the opportunity to work with her,” states Jay Dixon, Program Director of HOT 97. “TT knows Hip Hop! We are thrilled to have her on-board, and can’t wait to see what she can bring to our legendary brand.”

“I would like to thank Rick Cummings, Jimmy Steal, Deon Levingston, and most of all, Jay Dixon and Ebro Darden, for believing in my talents and allowing me the opportunity to further grow my career with the Emmis family,” adds TT. “As a young girl growing up in New York, I always dreamed about the day I would be able to work for the station that I grew up on. My desire to get into radio was because of the influence HOT 97 had on me as a kid. This opportunity is an amazing blessing and a perfect example that if you work hard, stay humble and put God first, dreams really do come true!”

TT will begin her new chapter as HOT 97 Music Director on October 1, 2014.

Congrats TT!
