WASHINGTON, July 14, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- The Real Hip-Hop Network is proud to announce the signing of SIRIUS XM "THE HEAT" radio personality Aaron "HERKULES" Graves as RHN's newest rising star. Herkules is deemed "THE STRONGEST MAN IN TELEVISION." RHN believes Herkules will attract even stronger ratings for the new channel, especially among its younger fan base. The addition of Herkules to the RHN team is a part of the networks expansion into original programming.
Mr. Graves will join Jason Parker (RHN's original hip-hop journalist and host of "LIVE with JASON PARKER") as the face of RHN. "HERKULES is an amazing talent that has a rare superstar quality that makes him special!" says Real Hip-Hop Network CEO, Atonn F. Muhammad.
"Herkules brings an infectious energy that jumps off the screen when he is on TV," says RHN MUSIC & TALENT executive Bernard Taft. The audience has something incredible to look forward to. REAL HIP-HOP NETWORK is hoping that Mr. Graves's high energy and broad appeal attracts an even larger audience for RHN's growing fan base.
Herkules will be host of RHN's flagship video countdown show, "VR-20," co-hosted by Eunice Kiss aka (U-NICE). The show will feature live performances, celebrity interviews and a countdown of the world's hottest videos. The show begins taping later this fall and will showcase the best from the underground and mainstream.
Mr. Graves was asked about how he felt about his move to THE REAL HIP-HOP NETWORK and he had this to say, "I've been in RHN's corner since I was first approached back in 2007 by Mr. Muhammad and I am glad to see that through all of these years he has not given up his dream. I am extremely thankful for the opportunity to shift gears in my career from radio to television." RHN plans to build its original programming lining up with some new faces and original concepts.
