Radio One, a division of Urban One − the largest distributor of urban content in the country, has appointed Marc “Nailz” Dixon as midday host and Assistant Programming Director for WCKX, Power 1075/1063 Radio One Columbus. Dixon will join Radio One on 8th November 2021.


Marc “DJ Nailz” Dixon started his radio career at WPYO Orlando as an intern and worked his way up to hosting the station’s number one night show. His ratings success at WPYO earned him a big promotion to nights at sister station, WEDR (99 Jamz)/Miami. Two years later, in October 2016, Nailz returned to Power 95.3 as morning host and later as host of the afternoon drive.


Colby “Colb” Tyner, Corporate Vice President of Programming, said, “Nailz is smart, creative and open to expanding his programming knowledge. We are excited to have him on the team.” Vice President and General Manager, Kimberly Kyle stated, “We are very excited to have Marc on the Urban One team. His energy and experience will be a great addition to the amazing staff we have in Columbus.”


Nailz commented, “Urban One is a company I’ve admired for a long time! I get to join a team with so much knowledge and experience. I’m excited for this opportunity! Can someone tell me who makes the best winter coats?”
