Tidal, a music and entertainment company owned by Jay Z, has launched Tidal On Air. It will feature new podcast playlists hosted by influential names in music and comedy.
The newly launched initiative Tidal On Air will feature the likes of Angie Martinez, Elliot Wilson, Brian “B.Dot” Miller, Stefi Chacon, Cipha Sounds, and Luis Jimenez. The first episodes of “In Real Life”, “Rap Radar”, and “En La Mira” are available for subscribers to the service today.
In Real Life is hosted by Angie Martinez, the iconic voice of hip-hop radio, and Miss Info, hip-hop web’s Voice of Reason. They let listeners into their longtime friendship as they tackle life, pop culture, politics, and everything else that happens off the clock.
Rap Radar is hosted by Elliot Wilson and Brian “B.Dot” Miller. The podcast is a relaunch of the home of hip-hop’s most revealing interviews. Both Wilson and Miler are true journalists who do an immense amount of research, know how to listen and are driven to get the answers to the questions hip-hop fans want to know.
En La Mira is hosted by Miami-based radio personality Stefi Chacon. She is a producer who interviews the most talked about artists in the Latin pop and Latin urban genres. Stefi Chacon is credited for jumping on the Latin hip-hop wave early by providing a platform for artists when it wasn’t as relevant as it is now.
The Guest Spot is “coming soon” to Tidal On Air. It is hosted by Cipha Sounds. A “guest spot” is a comedy industry term for when a comic who is not booked on the show performs an unannounced set. This podcast will be a conversation between Cipha Sounds, experts on a particular subject (mostly comedians), and a “guest spot” – a person who is not an expert in the field, but still has opinions.
Luis Jimenez is the title of another podcast that is “coming soon” to Tidal On Air. It is hosted by Luis Jimenez, one of the most influential and controversial Djs in radio history. In special-themed episodes, Jimenez will bring his unique perspective and humor to cultural events like Hispanic Heritage Month, Columbian Independence Day, and more.
