Lil Mo Exits 95.5 WPGC

Lil Mo is out as afternoon host at CBS Radio's 95.5 WPGC in Washington, D.C. She is looking to return to her music career and drops a new album "P.S. I Love, Me" this summer. Her first single from the album is "On The Floor."

Lil' Mo also just wrapped up the church soloist part in the touring cast of the Broadway musical 'The Color Purple.' The production ended with an Easter engagement at the National Theatre in the Nation's Capital.

This move marks another change in the on-air line-up at WPGC in recent months. Rumors continue to swirl revolving the format at the station about whether it will remain urban contemporary or change to rhythmic contemporary. No replacement has been named yet. Former 100.3 The Beat in Philly on-air personality and D.C. native, Laiya St. Clair is filling in.

  1. It's makes sense for CBS to keep WPGC as a hybrid of both urban and rhythmic, but they are going hard for the top spot held by Hot 99.5 with the rhythmic tracks spins. WPGC is the 2nd highest billing station in the DC radio market, so CBS is happy with the revenue flow it is bringing in considering its "unique" format. In all likelihood, WPGC will mirror its sister station WZMX "Hot 93.7" in Hartford in being an urban-rhythmic contemporary station that spins slow jams Sunday-Thursday nights. The irony is WZMX was mirrored after WPGC when it was created back in 2001, so it comes full circle.

    On whom will be the afternoon drive person, it's going to be a toss up between Laiya St. Clair and Herkcules. However, I think Herk will ultimately wind up with the spot since he has experience doing afternoons in the past.

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.

• 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.”
