WQHT (HOT 97) New York and parent company Emmis Communications announces the appointment of Jay Dixon as Program Director for WQHT.  Dixon has served as Interim Program Director for HOT 97 since Ebro Darden vacated the position in March 2014 to focus on hosting Ebro in the Morning, holding down the morning drive slot from 5 a.m. to 10 a.m. 

Jays extensive knowledge of radio broadcasting and ratings, as well as his familiarity with the Emmis brand, makes him the perfect fit for WQHT, states Deon Levingston, General Manager of Emmis New York.  Over the past few months, Dixon has initiated innovative and creative ideas to the HOT 97 platform, further demonstrating his capabilities of leading and continuing to expand the global presence HOT 97 has in Hip Hop and music.  We are thrilled to welcome him back to the Emmis family.

I am excited to be back with Emmis and to continue my work with WQHT.  Id like to thank Rick Cummings, Jimmy Steal, Deon Levingston, Ebro Darden and the entire Emmis community for this opportunity.  Look out of big things ahead for WQHT, Hip Hop, and New York! adds Jay Dixon.

Dixon began his career in broadcasting while still in High School, reporting for WILD in Boston.  Over the course of his career, Dixon has worked in multiple formats including Top 40, Country, Classic Hits and Urban, and has held positions with Cox Media as Program/Operations Manager for WBHK Birmingham and WALR Atlanta, as well as with Emmis former 98.7 KISS FM, serving as both Production/Creative Services Director and Program Director during his tenure.  Since 2012, Dixon has served as CEO/Operator for his own company, Jay Dixon Media, LLC, which manages www.i-SoulRadio.com, an online radio station playing classic R&B and soul music.
