Al Sharpton and Warren Ballentine Back on the air in Atlanta

The website of CBS Radio's 1380 WAOK in Atlanta simply states that the station is proud to welcome Rev. Al Sharpton and Warren Ballentine to our lineup starting Wednesday, April 29, 2009. Hear Mr. Ballentine weekdays 10 a.m. to 1p.m. and Rev. Sharpton weekdays 1p.m. to 4 p.m.

Sharpton and Ballentine were the midday host on Radio One's music/talk hybrid station "102.5 Grown Folks Radio." Radio One dropped the hosts back in February to make way for gospel music on 102.5 FM and a new R&B station on Majic 107.5 and 97.5 FM. Some of their former listeners in Atlanta staged a mild protest at Radio One's Atlanta's offices and started an online petition. With the addition of Ballentine and Sharpton, the station will move midday host Derrick Boazman to the 4-7 p.m. slot.
