Mondays to Fridays 10 a.m. – 3 p.m.
DJ Megan Ryte is a multi-hyphenate artist and modern-day renaissance woman—boasting a decade-plus career as a DJ and radio personality.
Currently, Ryte is a premier DJ at the legendary HOT 97 in New York City, where she hosts her own show, and mixes an energetic assortment of today’s trending music on weekdays, and a member of the world-renowned Heavy Hitters DJ crew. Before becoming a respected veteran in the music industry, she began her steady rise as an ambitious teenager spinning at parties in Hampton, Virginia. Soon after, she landed at Norfolk’s WOWI-103 Jamz, under the name DJ B*Ryte then continued at Miami’s WPOW-Power 96, West Palm Beach’s WMBX-X 102.3, DC’s WKYS 93.9, Philly’s Boom 103.9, and Houston’s KBXX-97.9 The Box.
As Ryte traveled the world as a tour DJ, controlling massive crowds at some of the world’s most notable venues and high-profile events, she became passionate about not just playing music, but creating her own. In 2018, she landed a deal with Rule #1/Interscope Records, under which she released two singles, the club-ready banger “On & On” featuring Tory Lanez and HoodCelebrityy and slow-burner “Unsure” with Joey Bada$$, Yung Bleu, and Arin Ray.
Now, with equal parts hustle, exuberance, and a decade worth of A-list connections, she is emerging as an executive and artist with her own imprint, Ryte Way Music, Inc. Inspired by her conduit personality, Ryte readies “DJ Megan Ryte,” her self titled debut album that doubles as her official introduction as a music curator, A&R, executive producer, and mogul. Set for release on April 16th, 2021 under her newly created label supported by Platoon, the project features an expansive list of new artists and established stars.
Fueled by life-altering adversity and Ryte’s unique ability to pair unsuspecting-but-complementary talents on the perfect track, the LP is a masterful mashup of diverse sounds—R&B-leaning cuts, reggae-infused melodies, club bangers, and hard hitting lyrical records. Ryte brings her joyful energy to the project and hopes it stands as a peek at what’s to come, including film & TV, more hits, and a growing roster on Ryte Way Music, Inc.
