(Albany Herald) — Danny Wilson and his silent partner in Light Media Holdings Inc., one of seven publicly-traded African-American-owned companies in the country, believe they are ahead of the radio curve thanks to “holy hip-hop.” And their business plan has nothing to do with Batman. Light Media Holdings completed the purchase of local urban radio station WZBN Power 105.5 on June 1, and four days later the new owners flipped the switch and became the first 24-hour “holy hip-hop and contemporary gospel” terrestrial radio station in America. Under the new moniker Power 105.5 The King, General Manager Wilson, Operations Manager Jammin’ Jay and Sales Manager Kynard McCray are bringing metro Albany radio audiences hip-hop beats with a gospel message. “I’d say the initial response (to the format change) has been overwhelmingly positive, from our audience and advertisers,” Wilson said. “In fact, the music sounds so similar (to what was played at Power 105.5 in the past), a lot of people haven’t even noticed the change.
