Hot 104.1 afternoon host Staci Static is taking maternity leave, and who better than St. Louis’ own Nelly to fill in? Nell is going to host the 3-7pm shift for Static for about a month. Not only will he be playing music on the show, but he will also conduct interviews.
Here is the official press release from Hot 104.1:
