ChilltownTV Cartoon Character Gets Radio Spot
“Lele” New Voice of KRYC Rhythm 105.9fm’s 60 Second Wrap-up
NEW YORK, NY April 10, 2013
Lele, a cartoon character in hip-hop oriented underground hit animated web comedy Chilltown and the star of her own ChilltownTV spin-off web series, Lele’s Ratchet Advice Show, has been tapped to do the 60 Second Wrap-Up, Thursdays at 4pm PST on Yuba City, California hip-hop radio station KRYC Rhythm 105.9fm starting April 11, 2013. This might be the first time a cartoon character has her own radio segment.
Lele, known for her wildly comedic take no prisoners stance towards the worst elements of dating and pop culture in her series, has been gaining heat. She’ll also be gracing the cover of hip-hop magazine HNS later this month. ABCNews/Univision just named Chilltown a “Web Series That Should Be On Your Radar” and Tubefilter called it a “Show to Watch.” The weekly 60 Second Wrap-Up is part of KRYC’s Business Report hosted by Gigi Capone. Lele will tackle gossip and entertainment news in her own unique comedy style, all in 60 seconds.
Both Chilltown, which stars Chappelle’s Show alums Wil Sylvince and Dante Nero, and Lele’s Ratchet Advice Show are the brainchild of writer/self-taught animator Leesa Dean. Dean writes and animates both series for the ChilltownTV YouTube channel. She also voices Lele. “Gigi is a Chilltown fan and we’ve been twitter friends,” Dean said. “When she asked if Lele would do the 60 Second Wrap-Up, I jumped at the chance. I already listen to Gigi’s show and love it. This is gonna be a lot of fun!” Dean will write and voice the weekly segments which will air on dial and stream online at http://www.rhythm1059fm.com.
