The Regis & Kelly "Women of Radio Contest" Semi-finalists are Announced and 95.5 WPGC tweets about it


The battle for the daytime TV cohost position has come down to 100 semi-finalists, a list that includes two syndicated show hosts, nine Canadian broadcasters and three from Sirius XM including Howard Stern's sidekick Robin Quivers. It a great way for Regis and Kelly to generate buzz about the contest while promoting their show and Facebook with mentions on radio stations all over the U.S. and Canada.

The winner gets a chance to co-host with Regis Philbin for one day from the show’s studio in New York City. We're sure that they may even think about having the top five host for an entire week. (Kelly must be on vacation) But we have uncovered some controversy from CBS radio's 95.5 WPGC. They had this exchange on Twitter yesterday with a listener:


Lmachazel @WPGC What do we need to do for Anji!!

Tweeted by WPGC @Lmachazel Vote for the ONLY urban on-air personality selected as a finalist for the Women in Radio Co-host for a Day Contest.


WAIT!!! WPGC tweeted the only URBAN on-air personality... hopefully they don't do an NAACP and delete this tweet from yesterday.

We decided to check out the list.

We found Kendra G - 100.3 The Beat, Elle Duncan - V-103, Angie Martinez - Hot 97, Jacque Reid - 98.7 Kiss FM, Malikha Mallette - Power 105.1, Nautica De La Cruz - KJLH, and former urban radio personality Helen Little at Lite 106.7 and of course Anji Corley at WPGC. Maybe WPGC should have tweeted that Anji is the only urban radio personality from D.C. to make the list. Now that this is straight, you can vote for your favorite on facebook, if you can figure out how???
