Just as curiously as it arrived on the scene, hip-hop station Streetz 102.9 seems to be off the air. Neither its live stream at www.streetz1029.com or the FM signal is working this morning.
The whole ownership issue with Streetz is murky and I have yet to reach anybody who has taken responsibility for the hip-hop station. Rumors online had former Radio One exec Steve Hegwood attached to the station so I went over to what I thought was his office yesterday in downtown Atlanta and he denied any involvement. Curiously, within a few hours of that encounter, the station disappeared.
I’ll update if I learn anything new.
-Here’s a press release I got about the casting call for Oxygen’s “Bad Girls Club.”
Bad Girls Club is looking for seven women to star in season four of the hit Oxygen reality show. From Bunim-Murray, the groundbreaking producers of The Real World, Bad Girls Club is Oxygen’s highest-rated original series ever.
Season four will bring together an all-new cast of self-proclaimed ‘bad girls’ in a beautiful mansion. These women recognize that their outrageous behavior has hindered their relationships, careers and lives. They have issues with trust and claim they want to change. Will living together help them move forward and turn their lives around – or will chaos rule?
Bunim-Murray Productions will be holding open casting calls in Atlanta on April 15th at:
Rock Bottom Restaurant & Brewery
3242 Peachtree Road NE
Atlanta, GA 30305
Those wishing to participate should email firstname.lastname@example.org and submit their name, phone number, snail mail and a brief description of why they consider themselves a ‘bad girl.’ Emails must also include several recent photos – submissions without photos will not be accepted.
-If you’re getting spam email saying that Oprah is giving away $1 million, it’s false. The FBI actually sent out a warning!
-Again, MTV has skipped over Atlanta for the “Real World” for the 23rd time. The next city: Washington D.C., according to the New York Post.
