Byline: - Fred Shuster

``THE RHYTHM COUNTDOWN''

What: Rick Dees' longtime sidekick Ellen K takes the reins from Sean ``Hollywood'' Hamilton as host of this weekly look at the top 30 dance and r&b tracks with guests and interviews.

Where: KIIS-FM (102.7).

When: 9 p.m. Sundays.

Playlist: Amber, Pink, Kim English, Madonna, Samantha Mumba, Destiny's Child, Melanie C, Jagged Edge.

Quote: ``Ellen K's got all the moxie it takes,'' says Kraig T. Kitchin, president of Sherman Oaks-based Premiere Radio Networks, which syndicates the three-hour show to more than 70 stations nationwide. ``A great smile in her voice, incredible history with many of the music artists and years of major market experience all add up.''

Background: K (real last name: Thomas) worked at radio stations in San Diego and San Francisco before starting at KIIS in 1990. Has appeared on TV as an entertainment and music reporter, and was featured in her own 1998 Playboy pictorial.

Taking a stand: ``I'm excited about creating a fun and partylike atmosphere with guest DJs, cool contests and tons of great music,'' she says.

You'll like this if: ... you like KIIS and KPWR-FM (105.9).
