WAOK Could Pick Up Ballentine and Sharpton

Rodney Ho of the AJC reports that Warren Ballentine and Al Sharpton have been picked up by CBS Radio's 1380 WAOK-AM (but this has not been confirmed by WAOK). They have dumped local hosts Rick Joyner and Rob Wilson.

Ballentine and Sharpton were at Grown Folks Radio 102.5 until last month when Radio One moved "Praise" from 97.5 to 102.5. A modest protest on President's Day outside the Radio One offices occured to keep them on the air in Atlanta; while Radio One created a new R&B station at Majic 107.5 with Steve Harvey and Michael Baisden moving over from Grown Folks Radio. Sharpton and Ballentine were dropped and did not make the move to 107.5 because of low ratings.

  1. I'm so happy that both Al Sharpton & Warren Ballentine are back. They are both vital resources to the African-American community for news and political and social issues. Most radio hosts don't cover the news that concerns us because of music programming, so I loved that we've got an objective point of view back. I'll be listening for sure!!!
