Michael Baisden Stirs Up His Listeners Against Carter and Sanborn and WDAS

Although Michael Baisden is on vacation this week, he's not far away from his listeners. Baisden posted the following on his Facebook fanpage :

"We’re off the air in Philly! I did not agree to be replaced during vacation. This is some Fragernackle Bull!!!"

After the status update the Baisden Live fans were immediately inspired to attack the programming decision by WDAS and some attacked Carter and Sanborn also. Brian Carter and Dave Sanborn, the former top rated morning show hosts at WDAS and Power 99, filled in 3 days last week for Baisden.

Some of the 80 comments also stated that Baisden was off the air in Cleveland at 93.1 WZAK on Friday. Was Baisden being "over sensitive" because he was not informed of the programming decision or is there apparently a ratings concern in the afternoons in Philadelphia?

Brian Carter addressed the issue with his fans, "...some of his frenzied listeners called us 'has beens' etc....funny. Our track record speaks for itself. He must've forgot those days when he was selling his books out the trunk ...he promoted them on our show on Power [99]".

  1. I for one am glad that other programming is being offered other that Mr. Baisden. Its strange that a man whose upset about not being able to control programming when I can not unsubscribe to his email newsletters. It is what it is Michael - not having control is something you should understand. Cleveland, Ohio WZAK listener again now that Mr. Baisden is off the air.

More news...On Sunday 107.5 WBLS weekend host LaDawn Black announced she was moving on to a new opportunity and leaving the station. Black made a surprise return to radio this week at her old stomping grounds as a guest host on The AM Clique Morning Show this week on 92Q (WERQ-FM Baltimore). LaDawn hosted the very popular night show 'The Love Zone' until 2013 when she moved over to sister Adult R&B station Magic 95.9 as midday host.

iHeart's Power 99 (WUSL-FM Philadelphia) midday host Cappuchino exits the station. She's been with the station since 2012. 'Way Up with Angela Yee' is now heard on Power 99 as one of the 30 affiliates that carry the syndicated program across the country.

Questlove went to Instagram to celebrate the word “jawn” being recognized as an official word in the Merriam-Webster Dictionary. The dialectic term is native to his hometown. In Philadelphia and Eastern PA, “jawn” evolved as a variant of “joint,” originally denoting a place. “Jawn” has been used to describe almost anything that one need not or cannot give a specific name to. Suddenly jawn has become not cool to use.
