Host Nikki Sixx, who joined The Eagle's lineup for the launch of "Sixx Sense" in February 2010, will now add morning show host to his list of credits.

Each morning on "Sixx Sense", Sixx will discuss music and lifestyle topics as he gives listeners an exclusive look at the world and mind of a rock star. Joined by co-host Kerri Kasem, Sixx will provide his unique perspective and attitude as the duo welcomes celebrity guests, recording artists and fascinating characters from all walks of life.
"Bringing 'Sixx Sense' to mornings has always been our goal," said Sixx. "Who better to start your morning with than a rock star and a hot chick? It's a dream come true to have a morning show on one of America's best rock stations."
"Listeners can kick off the day with Nikki, the proven professional, hugely successful, rocking personality," said Kelly Kibler, president and market manager, Clear Channel Media and Entertainment Dallas.
