"Carter and Sanborn" back on the air at WDAS

Brian Carter and Dave Sanborn (pictured here with Quiet Storm host Tony Brown) and even "Horace the Taurus" are guest hosting this week on the afternoon show from 3-7 p.m. at WDAS FM in Philadelphia.

While Michael Baisden vacations and most other markets across the country are running Baisden's "Best of" this week, WDAS took the opportunity to bring back the beloved morning duo.

"Carter and Sanborn", were the most popular morning show throughout the 90's at urban/hip-hop station WUSL Power 99 FM in Philadelphia. After their Power 99 run, Carter and Sanborn made a triumphant return to the airwaves in 2004, when The Tom Joyner Morning Show was dropped from the WDAS lineup. When the Steve Harvey Morning Show came aboard in 2005, Carter and Sanborn had garnered better ratings than the TJMS.

Brian Carter currently in on the air at Sirius XM Satellite Radio and Saturday afternoons on 107.5 WBLS in New York, while Dave Sanborn (known as Bill Simpson on the old smooth-jazz station WJJZ), is now a holistic health practitioner. The show sounds like old times, even down to the news with Loraine Ballard Morrill, currently the News Director and Community Affairs Director for Clear Channel Radio's six Philadelphia stations.

Gayle King and Charles Barkley are finalizing a deal that would have them jointly lead a primetime hour each week on CNN, according to people familiar with the matter and multiple news sources. The pact is not complete and there is always the risk it may not come to fruition, one of these people says. CNN declined to make executives available for comment.

Tavis Smiley owned Los Angeles talk station KBLA Talk 1580 donated $20,000 in scholarship money to the NABJLA and MPJI. Smiley says, “The National Association of Black Journalists of Los Angeles and the Minority Photo-Journalism Institute are making a tangible difference in our community by helping students pursue careers in journalism and communications. KBLA ‘Talk 1580’ strongly believes in enlightening, empowering and encouraging tomorrow’s reporters, editors and potential talk radio hosts. Hopefully, our scholarships make a difference.”

• WLBT anchor and meteorologist Barbie Bassett is no longer with the Jackson, Miss., NBC station after racially insensitive comments. In early March, Bassett was speaking with her fellow anchors on air about Snoop Dogg’s latest business venture, Snoop Cali Blanc, a new wine in his wine label. In response to a comment about putting a Snoop Dogg tattoo on her shoulder, Bassett said, “Fo shizzle, my nizzle.” Bassett is white. Charlamagne tha God defended Bassett as he discussed the situation on The Breakfast Club. “She might be old. She probably has no idea nizzle is a derivative of the N-word. That’s not a fireable offense. I hope she sues.”
