Rapper Nelly to host St. Louis radio show

ST. LOUIS Program director Mickey Johnson says the rapper has joined St. Louis urban station Hot 104.1 (WHHL-FM) as the afternoon drive-time host. He is filling in on the 3-7 p.m. shift for Staci Static, who is on maternity leave.

Station executives expect Nelly's on-air stint to last for about a month.

Johnson says the station wanted someone with star power. In addition to playing music, Nelly will conduct interviews.
