Stretch said: “I am pumped to be working with so many talented people at Benztown and can’t wait to jump right in and shake things up like Janet Jacksons Super Bowl Nip Slip. I got in to radio to entertain people and make them laugh. Benztown is giving me the chance to do that everyday with no limits! Making over the traditional sweepers and production packages like a Real Housewives of Beverly Hills Face, I plan on servicing our affiliates and listeners with timely production bits on a daily basis.”
