Flow gets bronze in Toronto Sun's Readers Poll for 2009. Article from Here.

Hip hop fans go with the FLOW

Eight years ago, FLOW 93.5 hit the Toronto airwaves, bringing to listeners the burgeoning sound of hip hop and R&B. Today, the radio station is a media lifeline for fans of the genre – a sound that has exploded in popularity to become more mainstream in commercial radio.

In appreciation of the station’s dedication to bringing the best and newest talent to music lovers, Toronto Sun readers have chosen FLOW 93.5 as a winner once again in this year’s Readers’ Choice Awards. The station won bronze for Best Radio Station; and JJ and Melanie won silver for Best Radio Personality as well as bronze for Best Radio Morning Show.

In addition to JJ and Melanie in the Morning, Flow listeners are treated to Jeni at mid-day, Devo Brown in the afternoon, and Jus’ Red and J-Wyze in the evening. Featured artists include Jay-Z, Kanye West, Rihanna and Toronto’s own Drake, one of the rising stars of the hip hop genre. DJs, Starting from Scratch, P-Plus and Jason Chambers create their own mixes in three shows a day.

“There’s a hip hop expression, ‘real knows real,’ which is what FLOW is all about,” says Nicole Jolly, vice-president of operations for NEW FLOW 93.5. “All of our DJs and announcers walk the talk; they know who the artists are and listen to their music. FLOW has always discovered up-and-coming talent, and we’re proud to be the station that introduces these artists to our listeners and helps them to break into the industry.”
