Flex And Sliwa Enter Hall Of Fame
Today, The New York State Broadcasters Association announced five inductees into its Hall of Fame. On the radio side, Emmis' Funkmaster Flex from Hot 97 and Curtis Sliwa from Salem's AM 970 "The Answer" become Hall of Famers. In the spring of 1992, Flex began mixing and hosting his own show, a specialized rap show on Hot 97. His show became the first pop station in New York to showcase rap, and he's been with Hot 97 ever since. He's now in syndication on weeknights and weekends. Sliwa's radio career began in 1991 on WABC and has continued for the last four years on AM970 "The Answer," where he hosts the morning show with former Governor David Paterson.
