KFI 640 AM Hires Morris O’Kelly as Host Following Community Pressure

Following the death of Whitney Houston Clear Channel conservative talk station KFI (640) Los Angeles suspended afternoon drive personalities John & Ken for a week over inflammatory remarks about her death. Afterwards a coalition of black activists and community leaders met with KFI station management in late February and insisted that the station hire more on-air and newsroom minorities.

As a result Morris O'Kelly has been hired as a weekend host at the 50,000 watt Southern California based talk station which also features Rush Limbaugh. O’Kelly's show will air on Saturdays from 6-8:00 p.m. Also signed was David Cruz who will host  on Sunday from 6-8:00 p.m. Both shows will begin this weekend. Not the best time slots...but it's a start we guess.

Listen to the interview by industry vet and publisher of EUR.com Lee Bailey had with O'Kelly: Says the Black Media Alliance opened the possibilities for him to display the fullness of his talent...

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.
