Doug Banks Afternoon Show is Cancelled

Citadel Media has informed affiliates of "Afternoons with Doug and DeDe" the show will end on December 31, 2009.

Doug Banks, has been both a morning and afternoon syndicated host with the radio network (first ABC Radio and now Citadel), since the mid-90's. DeDe McGuire has been part of the show since the late ‘90s.

Doug Banks has had a long history as a Chicago radio personality and the current show formerly known as "The Ride" airs on V103 (WVAZ). Co-host DeDe McGuire also does double duty as morning show host on KKDA-FM “K104” in Dallas.

This may be the first of Citadel's plan to shut down some other syndicated programs across the board. Currently Citadel syndicates Michael Baisden, Brian McKnight, Big Boy Neighborhood urban radio shows and "The Touch" Urban AC format along with many other mainstream radio shows.

As far as Doug Banks is concerned, he will probably be picked up by Chicago's V103 in 2010. Doug is also a contributor on the public affairs program "190 North" on Chicago's Channel 7 WLS-TV.
