Rickey Smiley in, Tom Joyner out at Power 92 Chicago


Big changes once again at Power 92 WPWX as word has it that The Tom Joyner Morning Show will be replaced by The Rickey Smiley Morning Show. The TJMS will continue on Crawford Broadcasting co-owned station the former "Soul" 106.3 WSRB. The station is now known as "Real Radio 106.3" as a syndicated music-talk hybrid format.

Now back to Power 92. They have also released veteran radio personalities Trey Da Choklit Jok and Sam Sylk as well. Trey hosted late mornings at the station from 9AM-12 noon. He was the previous morning host before making room for Joyner. Sam Sylk was the afternoon host. The TMJS can't be too happy with this news because WSRB doesn't have a strong signal throughout the Chicagoland area. The TJMS signed on with the Hip Hop formatted station Power 92 in June 2010 to cover the region much better. After a year, apparently the powers that be at Power 92 have decided that Joyner is not a good fit at the station.

Power 92 has tweeted this on Twitter to their listeners: YOUR MORNINGS ARE ABOUT TO GET FUNNIER...LITERALLY! HOW YA'LL FEEL ABOUT @RICKEYSMILEY COMING TO THE CHI?
