    I’m glad they are putting him on WPGC! They been having problems over there with way too many changes! PGC is starting to get weak especially when you have a station with Rickey Smiley and the other with Russ Parr! That woulda been good if he was on KYS bcus I rock with them more, when I do listen to radio! I hope he gives PGC more shine bcus Tigga can’t do it alone! I wonder if his show is going to take over for TJ and Rocsis’ countdown show?

  • BlackLove

    It seems like they are trying to make PGC a top 40 ish type station! Not too sure about that move but Nick is a great addition! He is definitely gettin his Tom Joyner on so I ain’t mad! Lol
