The weekly weekend show, hosted by Grammy-nominated hip-hop star MC Lyte, comedienne Loni Love ('Chelsea Lately') and radio veteran Angelique Perrin, just added New York City to its expanding list of markets.
The show now airs every Saturday on WBLS 107.5 FM, which is a homecoming for co-host Lyte.
"This is a lifelong dream come true. Not only do I get to connect to my hometown of New York and the surrounding tristate area, but I'm working with two of the funniest and intelligent women in the business, Angelique and Loni. Cafe Mocha is an amazing show, and I'm excited and proud to be involved," the rap star and voice-over talent told BlackVoices.com.
New York City is the 17th market for Cafe Mocha, which can also be heard in cities Washington, D.C., Chicago, Pittsburg, Milwaukee, and Greensboro, N.C., among others.
The Super Radio-distributed program, which is geared toward African American women ages 18 to 49, has also partnered with the 'Dr. Oz Show' to promote his New Year's resolution revolution 11-week diet plan 'Move it and Lose It.'
"Lyte, Loni and I all watch the 'Dr. Oz Show' and when he announced his 11-week 'Move it and Lose It' campaign, we decided it was time for us to go from watching the show to living it, while engaging our listeners along the way," said Perrin. "He's making the challenge so easy that there's no reason not to do it. His commitment is so compassionate and enlightening that it blew our minds. We're so proud to be able to use our show to push this program as your health is so affected by being overweight."
The ladies of Cafe Mocha will be checking in with the Dr. Oz weekly to track both the listener participation and their own pursuits toward better living.
"It's an amazing program that deals with diet, exercise and literally has personal trainers put together customized workouts for you on the Web for free," Perrin added. "As Dr. Oz says, no more excuses! All you have to do is go to DoctorOz.com sign up and show up. When he checks in with us each week, he'll also be checking on the listeners."
Cafe Mocha launched in March 2010 and is the mastermind of award-winning media mogul Sheila Eldridge.
In addition to the trio of principal hosts, the show also features an assortment of expert contributors including motivational speaker Michelle Hammond, licensed M.D. and clinically approved sexologist Dr. Rachael Ross, entertainment and lifestyle reporter Sandra Varner, and psychologist Dr. Alduan Tartt.
