Michael Baisden Says: Put My Show Back On in New York 107.5 WBLS
Last week The Michael Baisden Show was a casualty in the demise of Urban Adult Contemporary station WRKS 98.7 Kiss FM. Midday host Shaila along with night host Lenny Green were brought on board over at 107.5 WBLS, now New York's only urban adult contemporary station. The two shows that got the ax were the syndicated Tom Joyner morning show and the Michael Baisden show.
Should Michael Baisden return to the airwaves in New York City? ...but before you answer you may want to consider a few things.
Was it not Michael Baisden who landed a national radio syndication deal for his radio show "Love, Lust, & Lies" that was a hit in NYC after a book he had written of the same name? Baisden admittedly said he stalked the pages of Essence Magazine to bring sensational and sexually-charged content to the airwaves. It seemed there had to be a "Pimps in the Pulpit" show at least once a week...and even now Friday's shows with the dominant presence of comedian George Wilborn, are usually borderline buffoonery in and of itself.
Jeff Foxx of course was the morning host for many years following Isaac Hayes on the Kiss Wake Up Club during the same time that Michael Baisden launched "Love, Lust, and Lies" at first as a late night ratings winner then into afternoon drive on 98.7 Kiss FM.
Read Michael Baisden's petition to join 107.5 WBLS...and you decide. More than a few people that are considered veterans and professionals in the radio industry were put off by Baisden's post on facebook.
