Miles Ahead Broadcasting is pleased to announce
that Café Mocha Radio continues to expand its market reach with the addition of
Washington, DC’s WHUR 96.3 FM, Richmond, VA’s Radio One WKJS/WKJM-FM Columbus,
Georgia’s WKZJ 92.7 FM, Brunswick GA WBGA/B92.7 Jams’, KZWA-FM in Lake Charles,
LA and KKST-FM Alexandria, LA.
In recent months, today’s hottest celebrities from Kevin Hart, The Braxtons, Mary Mary,
Michael Ealy, Mike Epps, Jordin Sparks and Paula Patton to health aficionados Dr. Drew and
Dr. Oz have been featured on the weekly weekend show. Café Mocha Radio will increase its
audience and hold the distinction of being the only syndicated show to air across the entire
WHUR Network experience that includes WHUR’s SiriusXM, HUR Voices channel 141,
WHUR-World HD and the new Saturday morning slot on WHUR 96.3FM.
The nation’s only show for women of color made its debut on the Davis Broadcasting station
WKZJ 92.7 in Columbus, Georgia in May where it has fast-become a Saturday afternoon
staple. Says WKZJ Operations Manager Carl Conner, “We’re looking for Café Mocha to
enhance our appeal among female listeners with its fresh, relatable content, exclusive
entertainment coverage and localized news segments.”
“I was immediately intrigued by the concept of Café Mocha being from a female perspective,
so when I first heard MC Lyte, funny lady Loni Love and Angelique bring their own brand of
entertainment and news together I knew my female listeners would be hooked,” says
Yolanda Neely, Program Director at WBGA/B92.7Jams.

In addition to bringing on affiliates in Norfolk, VA and Memphis, TN earlier in the year, Café
Mocha remains on New York City’s WBLS 107.5 FM following its merger with WRKS 98.7
FM. The show has enjoyed top ratings in its weekend time slot with both male and female
demographics thanks to PPM-friendly new features “Espresso” minute, the “Swag Award”
and the “Lyte Mix”.
Recent Café Mocha specials include backstage exclusives with the cast of Steve Harvey’s
Think Like a Man, Live at the 2012 Essence Music Festival, Backstage at the Soul Man wrap
party with Cedric the Entertainer and Niecy Nash, and Behind the Screen with the cast of the
highly-anticipated film Sparkle. These exclusive entertainment segments, coupled with
localized news updates, have been the catalyst for Café Mocha’s rapid new market additions
that rival only that of Steve Harvey and Rickey Smiley’s nationally syndicated morning
shows, respectively. Upcoming fall promotions include a “Girlfriends” retreat in the
Bahamas and women’s empowerment seminars. “As a show led by women our goal is to
make sure we deliver relevant, fun and unique content with promotions that empower our
sisters,” says executive producer Sheila Eldridge.
